Powers & Sons 12 Year Old John's Lane Pot Still Irish Whiskey 750ml

SKU #1132065 94 points Whisky Advocate

 Wow! Could this be the greatest comeback since Rocky climbed back in the ring and showed the young upstarts who was the boss? It's taken Irish Distillers a long time to respond to the pounding it's taken from Cooley but it's back in the ring with two wonderful pot still whiskeys. This is the better of the two, a whopping oily, woody package of classic pot still Irishness. The green fruits tumble over tannin and spice like frisky puppies. (Vol. 20, #3)

K&L Notes

This is now the third single pot still whiskey in the U.S. from Midleton, following the Redbreast portfolio and the Midleton Barry Crockett. This is basically an all-pot still version of the normal Powers 12 (normally Irish whiskies are blends), but it's entirely different in flavor profile. Where the normal 12 is round, fruity, and soft, this John's Lane is earthier with leather and tobacco underneath the round vanilla. There's toasted oak and dark chocolate as well on the finish. Quite delicious.

The all pot-stilled Powers John’s Lane bottling really ratchets up the intensity and complexity from the usual run of Irish whiskies, while remaining true to type. You’d never mistake this for Bourbon, Scotch or any other style of whiskey. The nose gives up orange marmalade, yellow plum, honeysuckle, powdery vanilla, and cedar, before a duet between toasted graininess and yuzu fruit, with spice and crème brulee accents, begins on the palate. I hope we soon see more like this!
