Powers Gold Label

Powers Gold Label

Powers Gold Label is a complex spice and honeyed taste experience. Every drop is triple-distilled, with more cut from the top and tail of the second and third pot still charges. This means only the purest heart of the distillate is captured. This is then left to mature in select American oak casks, which allow our distillate-driven style to shine. Powers Gold Label is blended with the finest grain whiskey, also exclusively matured in American oak casks. Finally, a proprietary Powers 
production technique enables a non-chill filtration at 40% ABV – unique amongst Irish whiskey.

 

Powers Gold Label

 

STYLE:
Blend of single pot still and grain
Irish whiskey

ABV:
40%

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.

Long pot still oils and spices slowly fade to rich barley and toasted wood.

 

Bottle of Powers Three Swallow

Powers Three Swallow

If you like the rich pot still style of Powers Gold Label why not try it’s bigger brother, Powers Three Swallow Release? This Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is full of pot still spice and complimented by the subtle inclusion of Spanish Oloroso Sherry Casks.

Powers Three Swallow Release is the 21st century embodiment of the traditional pure pot still whiskey style that made Powers famous around the world. Three Swallow features all the singular characteristics of traditional Irish single pot still whiskey – robust, spicy and powerful. It is matured primarily in American bourbon barrels where these characteristics are amplified and complemented with strong wood character. Marrying with a small sherry-aged component gives Powers Three Swallow Release balance and finesse.

STYLE:
Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

ABV:
40%

NOSE:
Pot still spice combines with crisp barley character. Delicate herbs give way to green banana and grapefruit while a nutty note of marzipan reflects the wood contribution of specially selected casks.

TASTE:
In true pot still style, an initial taste delivers smooth mouth-coating barley followed by an eruption of green apple and citrus notes. Herbs and spicy flavour are complemented by a touch of cedar wood for extra complexity.

FINISH:
Spicy sweetness gives way to pot still barley character balanced with a hint of sherry and leading to a crisp cereal finish with toasted oak notes.

 

Jameson Black Barrel

Jameson Black Barrel

Double-charred for a rich, smooth taste. Every whiskey barrel contains secrets and whiskey that spends time in double charred bourbon casks learns a few special ones. Jameson Black Barrel delivers remarkable richness, smoothness and complexity with distinctive spiciness, vanilla sweetness and nutty notes.

 

Jameson Black Barrel

 

STYLE:
Blend of single pot still and grain Irish whiskey

ABV:
40%

NOSE:
One of the best noses in the business, our master blender picks out butterscotch and creamy, toffee fudge from the grain whiskey, peppery notes from the pot still whiskey, and ripe succulent fruits like nectarines, apricot and ripe apples from the sherry casks.

TASTE:
Our master blender describes the flavour as intense and enhanced – the grain whiskey in specially flame charred bourbon barrels delivers more concentrated spice, nutty notes and vanilla sweetness, while the pot still whiskey in sherry casks adds sherry fruit flavours.

FINISH:
An enhanced finish, reflecting all the components of Jameson Original, smooth and mellow with an intense and rich finish.

 

Redbreast 12

Redbreast 12

One of the most decorated Irish whiskeys, Redbreast is the largest selling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey in the world. Regarded as the definitive expression of traditional Single Pot Still whiskey, the genesis of Redbreast dates back to 1903 when John Jameson & Son entered into an agreement with the Gilbeys Wines & Spirits Import Company to supply them with new make spirit from their Bow St. Distillery. The custom of that era was that distillers sold bulk whiskey to ‘bonders’ who, being in the business of importing fortified wines such as sherry and port, had ample supplies of empty casks in which to mature new make whiskeys under bond.
