POWER'S 12 YEAR OLD John Lane 46%
Autres Whisky, Ireland / County Cork, 70cl, Ref: 378
Our experts reviews“ Included in the Single Pot Still range launched in 2012, which also includes Redbreast and Greenspot, Powers is the most rustic of these three brands of Irish whiskey. Produced at the Midleton distillery from a blend of equal parts of malted and unmalted barley, its higher than average alcohol content reveals a powerful, tangy style, in addition to the usual notes of red fruit. Oscillating between fruity and sweet-savoury notes, this unusual character makes it a stand-out whiskey in the range, that La Maison du Whisky has distributed on an exclusive basis in France since 1996.
The Powers John’s Lane distillery was renowned for the quality and character of its flavourful pot still Irish whiskeys. It used to make Powers Gold Label, which was for a long time one of Ireland’s most popular brands. Now a single pot still, this whiskey pays homage to this past.
With the creation of a dedicated appellation, this Powers whiskey has become a “Single Pot Still” (all the current pure pot stills come from a single distillery; it was therefore decided to highlight this fact, in the same way as the Scottish distilleries with their single malts and single grains). Mainly matured in first-fill bourbon casks, Powers John’s Lane 12 Year Old also includes some whiskey finished in sherry casks.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively.

- The brand
The brandConsidered the ultimate Irish whiskey, Powers is now seen as being part of Irish culture and belongs to ‘its people, land and country’. The Powers distillery has always been at the forefront of whiskey production. A typical Irish whiskey, Powers is a unique combination of pot still and grain whiskey, which gives it a powerful spicy flavour and an incredibly round finish. Powers is made from a mixture of malted and unmalted barley, which is then triple-distilled. This unique type of distillation preserves all of Power’s flavour and character, which has been conveyed by its name for the last 200 years.

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€45.90
