My Handcrafted Opinions on Whiskies, Distilleries and Other Related Stuff

Powers John's Lane Release

When I think pot still whiskey I think Red Breast.  Some of the others I have tried (Green Spot, Barry Crockett Legacy) just didn't stack up for me to the "Rouge Boob".  Case closed, the marketing department was right for once, Red Breast IS the definitive Irish pot still whiskey.   Then I tried this.  The nose has christmas pudding, vanilla and brown sugar.  The taste is sweet biscuit and malt, citrus fruit and lots of milk chocolate and golden syrup.  The finish gets all spicy and oaky, perfectly balanced with the sweet-fest taste.  Red Breast finally has a serious rival for my affections.
