A single pot still incarnation of Powers whisky, named for the now-defunct old Powers distillery. This is a very classy whiskey made using a combination of bourbon and oloroso sherry cask matured spirit.
Tasting Notes by Robin Laing, World Whiskies Awards 2012
Dusty, sweet, chocolate - opening a tin of Bourbon creams - hint of Plasticine. Beautiful sweetness up front (brown sugar, toffee, coconut macaroons, madeleines) with deeper notes following - ginger, nutmeg, Victory V spice - mouth-filling, chewy and rich.

One of my favourites of last year...bought late 2012. Considered a second bottle, but tried other Irish contenders at a recent whisky show. Nothing bettered this. No. 2 will open up as the bottle empties, like the last, but at The moment all I'm getting is an impression of a fine, floral non-sherried speysider blended with some good bourbon. Which is a great start!

I have been drinking Powers whiskeys for 40 years and was introduced to 12 Year Old Pot Still only a few years ago. What a superbly delightful drink this is, even more mellow than the Gold Label (and that's saying something!), ideal for celebrating those special occasions.

quite simply the best whiskey in the world....Ever
It's perfect, my only gripe is the availability in the UK is shocking!it should be sold in every shop

A brilliant whiskey. Not a Power's fan previously this superb whiskey has changed my mind. It's incredibly rich and smooth taste leaves you awaiting your next opportunity to relax with it again.

Jim Murray has got it right with this one... one of the best whiskies out there at the moment. Silky smooth with the perfect level of wood. Powers must be extremely proud of this... it's as good as you're ever likely to get. You will not get better value for money anywhere.

Probably the best, and at the price the best value, Irish Whiskey around at the moment.
