Whisky Reviews for Fercullen 14-year-old Pow

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.98 points

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Fruity, complex and very tasty - what a positive surprise!
    Recommended.
    As far as I know this whiskey was distilled at Cooley Distillery ... the Powerscourt Distillery just opened. Obviously Powerscourt Master Distiller Noel Sweeney knew very well, which casks from his former company are outstanding good.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    He can be more than impressive. Rarely, that you have a 14-year-old Irish single malt in the glass, which has these beautiful fruit notes, which are usually reserved for older single malts.

      Ui, the scent of a bag that has just been opened Haribo Tutti-Frutti is the first thing that comes to mind here - a full load of sweet exotic fruits with a slightly artificial touch, but that does not detract from the positive first impression. Fresh grass cuttings, vanilla, honey, toffee.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Fruity start with papaya, pineapple, guava and mango. Dry wood, pepper. Well-balanced mixture of fruit and spice, which one otherwise likes to find in much older Irishmen. Creamy.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-long and dry, the fruits and spices continue to compete for flavor dominance.

  4. DerDennis! scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant whiskey. Well-integrated alcohol. The smell and taste are almost identical at first, then when swallowed, a small taste explosion that slowly fades away in the finish
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, honey, light fruits, marzipan, white gummy bears, no noticeable alcohol, somewhat closed overall
    • Taste
      88 88
      sweet, spicy, some pepper, becoming creamy, light tingling, pleasant tannins, nutty, marzipan, here too gummy bears, a faint note of ash, vanilla
    • Finish
      88 88
      long, marzipan and tannins, becoming dry, sticks to the palate, unsweetened peppermint tea

  5. EvilAFI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A well balanced irish, not as fruity or as rich as some other brands, but still very well done!
    • Nose
      86 86
      A bit of sour milk to start (or over ripe papaya), tropical fruits, light oak, icing sugar
    • Taste
      88 88
      Nice and fruity! Tropical and orchard. Rich and rounded with oak, light touch of white pepper.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Pepper and oak, then the fruits return

      fresh fruit, tea leaves, a pinch of vanilla, tart, a touch of coffee
    • Taste
      good body, dense, quite spicy, moderately sweet, citrus

      long, sweet and citrusy
