I agree with the above. Nothing beats Red Breast, but in its price class, Powers is the best.
This whiskey is a poor man's Scotch. There is just enough peet flavor to make it unique and still be an Irish whiskey. I have tried most of the Irish whiskey imported and this is by far my favorite of the lower priced whiskey. I can't give it a 5 star because it does not compare to Red Breast but it is great for the money.
