Medium gold color. Aromas of gingerbread cookies, buttercream, cassis, spearmint, and spiced orange tea with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, long spice cake with caramel, chocolate covered nuts, and smoky dark roasted espresso finish. A robust and chewy Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey; a great standby for the connoisseur that will serve as a great nightcap or cigar pairing.

Rich dried fruits, candied peel, dried apricot, mango strips, white pepper, herbal notes, almond paste, and sweet grapefruit flesh—this has signature notes of Powers all over it. Thick and velvety, there’s warm marmalade, sugared almonds, golden barley, citrus, and green apple. It’s all quite mellow until the spices work themselves up into a bit of a frenzy. Long fruity finish, with toasted coconut and a luscious, billowing spiciness.
