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.
