Nose Cinnamon, clove oil and white pepper in balance with russet apples and ripe pears, on a background of charred oak.
Taste Cinnamon, green peppers and a touch of nutmeg combined with orchard fruits, vanilla and toasted oak. All laid upon a crisp barley core.
Finish Long Pot Still oils and spices slowly fade to rich barley and toasted wood.
The nose is filled with the unmistakable pot still character and classic, hefty Irish Whiskey flavors of honeycomb with toasted grain, biscuits, vanilla cream, and touched with subtle notes of black pepper and cardamom. Wonderfully balanced and uplifting (Mar 2012)
Powers Signature Release is the second Single Pot Still whiskey to be added to the Powers family, following the release of the ultra-premium Powers John's Lane Release in May 2011. The new expression bears the hallmark spicy flavors that are typical of the Powers whiskeys, with black pepper, honey, vanilla and berries in abundance. Using the signature Powers pot still distillate, it has been matured mainly in American bourbon barrels with the subtle inclusion of whiskey matured in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks.
