Review: Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey (2009)

powers gold label irish whiskey

Now appearing with a new (and really, only modestly different) label design (pictured above), today we turn our attentions to Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey, a surprisingly big brand in the Irish business that is a standard in Ireland but less commonly known stateside.

Very traditional, this light-bodied whiskey (the recipe inside is the same as before) offers medium gold hues and a good nose of vanilla. The body is surprisingly creamy, with a nutty vanilla character on the palate, some butterscotch, and an interesting, herbal finish. Overall, it’s simple and easy-drinking, fine on its own or with your favorite mixer. An excellent value, too.

80 proof.

    i have always been a scotch drinker and drink all my liquor neat…. but lately i have took a real liking to good boubons… i also just tried powers and was pleasently supprised by its rich full flavor yet very light and smooth finish… it is by far the best irish whiskey i have ever had…
