I just had to try another Irish after the dissappointing Paddy the other day. So I gave this Powers 'Gold Label' a go.

The John Powers Distillery closed in 1974 and all production was moved to New Midleton Distillery in the south of Ireland. Reportedly, Powers sells 2,5 million bottles a year. Surely that means something, no?

The nose is delicate and sweet, like most Irish drams, but this one seems a little more complex with vanilla, cereals and caramel and a touch of flowers. Slightly mouthwatering.

In the mouth it's soft and a little buttery. Quite appealing. It starts out a with some bitterness, but soon some nuts and grass are palpable.

The finish is short and grainy.

This is a very easy to drink Irish dram, but well balanced and deserving of our attention. It's easy to see why this dram is very popular. It has reinstated my faith in the Irish Whiskey...

Powers Gold Label is probably my favourite whiskey if I just want to get drunk. The smooth buttery taste makes it go down more easily than any other whiskey, but it still has enough flavour and body to make it worthwhile drinking.
