Whisky Reviews for Powers Gold Label

- A tasty blended Irish that you will almost forget is a blend. Some nice fruit and spices come into this and the fact that this is non chill filtered is certainly a bonus. Where I live, it is only a bit more expensive than Jameson’s and this is much, much better.
- A solid, great value and possibly all day dram. Very easy to drink and absolutely recommended for any new whiskey connoisseur.
The tasting notes on the label at the back of the bottle is happily matching my own tasting notes.
Light, sweet toffee, coco, vanilla, fresh, apples, cinnamon.
Honey, white pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla.
Medium finish, becoming a little dryer. The white pepper is still left and is fading to a sparkling spicyness with some vanilla in the background.
- typical budget Irish whiskey similar to Jameson, Bushmills, Kilbeggan perhaps slightly better or not really
vanilla, orchard fruits, spice,
lot of spice, sweet,
slight bitter at the end of it
- A decent to good blend of the rather spicy variety, the nose is nice, in the mouth and in the finish one or the other doesn't quite fit. But all in all. Totally OK.
Nice Irish pot still nose with tropical fruits, some glue, light umami and some coconut and vanilla from the grain.
Amazingly powerful, unfortunately a notch too alcoholic. Soft aromas, subtle bitterness, pot still aromas, similar to bourbon.
Short, light grain tail, but only a blend.
- In the course of the emptying bottle, a decrease in the quality of the taste can be seen after 6 weeks after uncorking:
Decrease in fruit with an increase in grain and a certain bitterness
- 2nd round bottle L8064415292 17:51, uncorked 14 days ago. Positive development. Takes a good 15 minutes in a Glencairn glass.
Today a very successful Irish blend (apparently with a high proportion of pot still whiskeys) and without bitterness and other grain notes. The 43.2% suit him well.
Green apple pear (green and a bit unripe) coconut (hint) sweet vanilla caramel honey mint nutmeg cinnamon
Fresh and fruity and amazingly diverse
Green Apple Fruit Sweet Vanilla Caramel Chocolate Malt Honey Aromatic (White or Green) Pepper Nutmeg Cinnamon
creamy, tasty and warming
Sweet Vanilla Honey Aromatic Pepper Nuts Dark Chocolate
good medium length, nice combination of sweetness and spice
- bottle L8064415292 17:51 (slightly different label)
Easy drinkable, ABV 43.2% is good for him, more classic, lighter and, thanks to the triple distillation, milder Irish, which is worth the extra price compared to Bushmills Original, Paddy and Jameson and hides its grain content well. No bitter notes with a good medium-long warm finish. Becomes more characterful and better with longer life in the glass and with the third sip. Nice all-day dram. The Bushmills Black Bush tasted today at a price that is a bit € 4 higher, but inferior.
1st dram drunk there!
malt, cereals, caramel, cooked fruit, some mocha too and vanilla, dry coconut.
then fruit (apple and cherry), vanilla again, then dry wood, bitterness emerges then
a little crushed walnuts or nuts, pepper there and the bitter almond core.
dry wood, vanilla and bitterness too present, which disappoints in the end.
- Lot of bitter wood aromas. Would be a nice dram without the offnotes
Mild and spicy, sweet malt, warm, sherry, fruity (banana, papaya, sweet peach), somehow "covered" without being really old. Slightly woody-leathery.
Reminiscent of the 10-year-old Glenlivet from the first-fill sherry barrel (SV Unchillfiltered Collection), it also has a profound almond-like quality.
In the mouth:
First silky, velvety, light to watery, then sweetness and spice. Towards the middle, it becomes slightly dusty-floury, a phenomenon that has also been observed in Jameson's Black Barrel and Crested Ten. Aftertaste slightly grainy and also dusty. Spices, nutmeg and cinnamon maybe, a touch of cocoa powder. Rather, something autumnal, would fit well with Pumpkin Pie. The fruitiness of the nose is clearly behind the spicy, "dark" components.
Finish: rather short, a bit too grainy and bitter.
