Powers John's Lane
Like Redbreast, Powers John's Lane is a single pot still Irish whiskey made at the Midleton Distillery.
Powers John's Lane, 12 years old, 46% abv ($70)
The nose is light and fruity. The fruit fades on the palate which is malty and just slightly sweet. The finish is reminiscent of Samoas, the Girl Scout cookies with coconut and caramel.
This is a decent whiskey with some nice malty character but not one that I can see paying $70 for when Midleton's other single pot stills, Redbreast and Green Spot are cheaper.
Thanks to Josh from The Whiskey Jug for the sample.
