Powers Gold Label is cut from the heart of the distillate. That means more top and tail gets thrown away than any other Irish whiskey. Left to mature in selected American oak casks, this is where the spicy, bold character takes hold. A complex and honeyed taste is yours for the taking. On the nose, cinnamon, clove oil and white pepper in balance with russet apples and ripe pears, on a background of charred oak. It tastes of cinnamon, green peppers and a touch of nutmeg combined with orchard fruits, vanilla and toasted oak. All laid upon a crisp barley core. Finishing, long Pot Still oils and spices slowly fade to rich barley, toasted wood and a wonderfully complex honey flavor.
