Strength: 43.2%ABV (86.4 proof), triple-distilled.
Description: John Powers was the first Irish distillery to bottle their own whiskey. Made from Malted Barley in pot still and unmalted barley finely milled. During the distillation process Powers whiskey cuts more from the top and tail than most Irish distilleries. Only taking the heart of the distillate helps remove most of the heavy fusel oils that develop, to create a very refined and smooth Irish Whiskey.
The nose is quite elegant with backbone. Cinnamon-apple-spice and everything nice. The palate is smooth and long with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, bell pepper, and hints of oak char.
