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.
Nose Cinnamon, clove oil and white pepper in balance with russet apples and ripe pears, on a background of charred oak.Taste Cinnamon, green peppers and a touch of nutmeg combined with orchard fruits, vanilla and toasted oak. All laid upon a crisp barley core.Finish Long Pot Still oils and spices slowly fade to rich barley and toasted wood.
