This is a blended Irish whiskey finished in craft Irish Pale Ale-seasoned barrels. A nose of floral, herbal hops, grapefruit citrus notes with subtle orchard fruits, complemented by wood shavings and a little nuttiness. A taste of hops and light citrus then finishes with lingering fresh fruit and barley.
The Distillers Safe is an Irish Whiskey that celebrates the craft of Head Distiller, Brian Nation, and his mastery of the Irish pot still. It also represents his command of the distillers safe, which allows him to confirm the quality of whats inside the pot still, without having to open it. It starts off with barley sugar sweetness, progressing to hints of cinnamon and even a touch of liquorice. A vibrant note of mandarin orange appears alongside the nuttiness of ground almond.
Three Swallow Release is a modern expression of what the original POWERS Whiskey tasted like back in the days of our Johns Lane distillery. This quintessential style of whiskey, Single Pot Still is exclusive to Ireland, and is made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills.
Matured for 18 years in hand-selected oak casks from Europe and America, this rare whiskey is finished in first-fill bourbon barrels. This rite of passage introduces subtle traces of vanilla to an exceptionally balanced, mellow whiskey with a lingering finale of wood, spice and toffee. An elder statesman of our portfolio, each bottle of this unique whiskey is individually numbered.
Limited release. The initial aroma of freshly mown Hay is complimented by a crisp Orchard Fruit character, Green Apples and Pears along with a twist of Lime Zest. Mild Pot Still Spices appear, deepening from Green Tea to Hazel Nut and Milk Chocolate. The lingering Hop influence combines effortlessly with Toasted Oak and Barley Grains to form a solid base. As expected, there is the initial sweet mouth coating typical of the Irish Pot Still Whiskey inclusion. Then the effect of the Beer Cask finish becomes apparent with the subtle touch of Hops and Cocoa Beans. Some Marzipan and Charred Oak add to the complexity. Long and sweet finish with Milk Chocolate and Butterscotch.
