Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: Low price (~20$), excellent taste, and not pretentious (yet)
Cons: May be hard to find in some areas.
Summary: I seem to keep progressing through phases of Irish brands. Jameson's gave way to white label Bushmills because W-bush had more flavor and less ethanol bite, now I have progressed to Powers. Having never heard of this brand at the time, I was sitting ... read more

Pros: Very smooth, not a hint of harshness.
Cons: Don't know where I can buy it in Ontario, Canada, but I'll keep searching....
Summary: Having been a Scotch drinker for over 30 years [just a beer and or rye and or rum tippler previously!!lol], I had developed a preference for some really nice Scotches, leaning heavily to pot still method single malts, so when my Irish minister gave me a ... read more

Pros: Balanced rye and sweetness. The warmth of it doesn't harsh like several other competitors.
Cons: Bar managers favor the inexplicably more popular Bushmills and Jameson varieties. Long live John Power!
Summary: I find no fault in any of the above content. Truer praise I've not seen - almost brings a tear to the eye. I've been a faithful proponent of this most excellent libation for many years, with few converts, unfortunately. The ruling class at my "home ... read more

Pros: One of the best values in the $20 range.
Cons: Somewhat hard to find. Bottle tends to empty quickly.
Summary: Another excellent relatively low-end Irish Whiskey. The big four in order of light to stronger flavors: Bushmills, Jameson, Tullamore Dew, and Powers. I find the Powers Gold to have more character than the others though giving up a wee bit of smoothness ... read more

Pros: Perfect amount of sweetness, good price and an all Ireland Favorite.
Cons: Hard to find in the U.S. and not as 'trendy' as Jameson (good thing)
Summary: I went on my honeymoon to Ireland where I was lucky enough to try Powers Gold. It is great slow and neat or served as a shooter with a pint of Guiness. It is smooth with just the right amount of sweetness that seperates Irish Whiskey from all other ... read more

Pros: Smooth with a nice finish, not at all harsh
Cons: None. None. I can't think of a single bad thing to say
Summary: "For God made Whisky so the Irish should not rule the World." That little quip from Behan being true, it's a fine thing that he allowed Power's to come up with their magnificent draught to soften the blow. If you've not tried it, do so. It's ... read more

Pros: Buttery smoothness. Excellent value for the money.
Summary: Power's Gold Label should be in everyone's liquor cabinet. I've heard this is Ireland's biggest selling whiskey and I can see why. I've tried this and Jameson's and I must say, as smooth and refined as Jameson's is, Power's beats it hands down in terms ... read more
