Powers Gold Label blended Irish whiskey is reported to be a blending of 70% pot still whiskey and 30% 'grain whiskey'. Powers Gold Label is reported to be the largest selling Irish whiskey within Ireland.

Nose: moderate to strong intensity nose, honey, grass, barley, barley-malt, a little floral, a little citrus and peach

Taste: honey, butter, malt, grass, with a sharp and bitter edge. This is pleasant if you like the bitter edge as part of the package

Finish: the honey and butter last moderately long, with the grassy malty bitterness lasting quite long and dominating the finish

Balance: the sweetness and maltiness of this whiskey are quite pleasant, and are set in a balance against a substantial hard bitter edge. It is an interesting package, but I find the bitterness on palate and especially on finish to be more than I like. This is drinkable whiskey, but one which I would rarely seek out
