[heading subtitle=”Powers Gold Label” title=”Irish Whiskey”][row cols_nr=”2″][col size=”8″]Powers is one of the classic Irish whiskeys which is more popular in Ireland than abroad. As a blend, it is dominated by the pot still rather than the grain. I have to acknowledge that the Three Swallows on the neck of Powers bottles played a small role in inspiring me to develop the Pooka Whiskey Scale.[/col][col size=”4″]

Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey
Powers, like Jameson is a blend of Pot Still and Grain Whiskey.
However, Powers is very much dominated by the Pot Still element of the blend giving it more spice and bite than it’s more famous cousin. My advice to a One Pooka drinker would be to start my whiskey journey with Jameson and then move to Powers in order to fully appreciate that you are getting into a slightly more specialised Irish whiskey.
Powers Gold Label Tasting Notes
- Nose: Simple. Fruity from the grain and Pepper and Spice from the Pot still.
- Taste: A strong full flavoursome whiskey with the pot still dominating. Nice warm honey feel.
- Finish: A long lingering sweet finish with peppery after taste from the Pot still.
It’s all about the Pot Still here. Powers is an institution here in Ireland and would be considered the Pub Whiskey Drinker’s whiskey. Powers drinkers are intensely loyal to their brand and normally drink it neat, with a splash of water or with red lemonade as a Powers and Red!
