  • Excerpt: Kind of surprised at how much I liked the taste of this one. The finish holds it back a little as the 40% just holds it back. But the triple distillation and barrel influence make it sweet and inoffensive.

  • Excerpt: Perfect harmony is reestablished as it fattens out with cinnamon toffee. Bold, robust, and triumphant: just add a Dublin pub weekend crowd and you’re all set.

  • Excerpt: A slight spice comes through at the beginning and also at the end. The finish is long and easy with some of that spiced honey coming through.

  • Excerpt: The slight bump in alcohol works well at boosting the body just a smidge, adding just a bit more creaminess to an already well-balanced spirit.

  • Excerpt: Honestly, just fine. Powers Gold Label isn't complex, or that flavorful, but what it does have is enjoyable enough and would make an especially fine cocktail.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Midleton distillery in Ireland, this release in the Powers portfolio occupies the modest middle shelf and is non-chill filtered - a surprising but welcome aspect of this bottling.

  • Nose:

    Apples, peaches, light dough notes. A bit sweet, a hint of caramel. Not too complex but it's light and delighting on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate. Caramel, raisin bread, apples and some cream. A little oak, not a ton. Not young or malty but it is on the lighter, sweeter side.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, a bit of pepper, honey, light apple and more dough.

  • Overall:

    Honestly, just fine. Powers Gold Label isn't complex, or that flavorful, but what it does have is enjoyable enough and would make an especially fine cocktail.

  • Score:
