Powers John's Lane Release 12YO 700ml
James Power founded his distillery at Thomas St. in 1791, moving shortly thereafter to a larger site at John's Lane near the western gate of Dublin. It was at John's Lane that the Powers whiskey legend originated and gave rise to one of the most quintessentially Irish whiskeys. This expression, Powers John's Lane Release, celebrates the origin of the Powers whiskey tradition and provides a glimpse of the whiskey style that made Powers famous. Using a pot distillate, which is true to the original style of John's Lane, the whiskey has been matured for not less than 12 years, mainly in first fill American bourbon casks, with a small contribution of distillate, which has been matured in Oloroso sherry butts. The result is a Single Pot Still whiskey of outstanding flavour and body which provides a fitting tribute to the spiritual home of one of Ireland's most loved whiskeys.
Nose: An abundance of earthy aromas, leather, tobacco with layers of charred wood, dark chocolate and treacle toffee.
Taste: Full bodied spice front followed by vanilla, honey and dried apricot.
Finish: Lingering honey sweetness on toasted oak.
