Long the best-selling whiskey in Ireland until recently usurped by Jameson, Powers was originally made at the John's Lane Distillery, founded in 1791 in Dublin by James Power, a coaching innkeeper. At the turn of the century his son John joined the company, and it became known as John Power & Son.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/02/2013


Clear, deep golden with bright gold tints.


Cereal and freshly baked bread with drizzled honey, light maltyness and crushed mint leaves with tobacco and mild spice.


Medium bodied but with assertive pot still character. Sweet toffee and caramel cereal with bursts of fruity malt, light spice and a rounding buttery notes.


Long and delicately spicy with caramel and toffee spice.
