Powers John's Lane 12 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Appealingly heady nose of candied orange peel and pot pourri - very fragrant and aromatic, with lightness of touch.
Palate: The aromatic fruit continues on to the palate, with toasty spice. Good texture and balance.
Finish: The light fruit makes way for the biscuity malt and subtle cinnamon-tinged spice.
Tasting Notes by Robin Laing, World Whiskies Awards 2012Dusty, 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.

Rich and complex, this is one of the great whiskeys of the world. A perfect example of what the single pot still style can deliver. Very much worth tracking down a bottle!
Completely disagree with the sites nose & flavor notes. John's Lane has a thick tabacco & fresh morning pastry nose, with a healthy dose of pot still spices. Taste continues with the tabacco & pastry. Hold it in the mouth a bit & chew, the pot still spices come alive biting your tongue & cheeks. Swallow & notice the apricot notes & what I can only describe as that black cherry soda I used to enjoy as a child. This is a gargantuan flavor explosion on the pallet. You'll not be disappointed with your choice here. Sla?nte
Be prepared to fall in love all over again. With each sip caressing your lips this whiskey lures you in warming your heart. Neat or on Ice she pleases either way.
Best bang for buck Irish Pot Still you''ll ever find. Majestic in quality. This is the whiskey to have if your stuck on a desert Island or anywhere. Thank you Midleton.
loved it from first sip,what a great whiskey,just wish more availability esp. in the states
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!
My favourite Irish Whiskey and it has not disappointed
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.
It's Christmas in a glass...
Stunning !! can not say much more
Fabulous, complex and long
