SuperValu launches latest Powers Single Cask Releases just in time for Christmas
SuperValu, the number one supporter of local and Irish producers, recently unveiled its exclusive range of carefully selected, premium Irish whiskeys, which now include the new limited edition Powers Single Cask Releases.
New to the market , this style of whiskey is unique to Ireland and regarded as the truest expression of Irish whiskey. Bearing a 15 year-old age statement with hallmark spicy flavours, these two Single Cask Releases are complemented by the velvety mouthfeel which characterises great Pot Still whiskey.
Powers Irish Whiskeys are rich, round and full flavoured whiskeys with a distinctive taste which comes from the unique way all Powers whiskeys are made. Triple distilled, Powers cut more from the top and tail of the second and third charges meaning only the purest heart of the distillate is captured. This unique flavour is then maintained through slow and careful maturation in American oak casks which allow the distillate driven style to shine. Non-chill filtered, the result is a powerful, spice and honeyed taste experience that is distinct to Powers.
Aged for a minimum of 15 years, the extra time in the wood gives these Powers Single Cask Releases an added maturity, subtlety and softness. Both retain the depth of flavour that is characteristically Powers, while revealing complex and layered, individual tasting notes.
Powers Single Cask Release #69915
Nose: Citrus orange peel sweetness, fresh notes of melon and green banana. Herbal notes develop over time with the American oak adding depth and complexity.
Taste: Pepper and clove give way revealing a luscious mouth coating while the vanilla notes from the oak along with fresh fruits create a caramelised apple sweetness.
Finish: The sweetness slowly fades leaving behind some pleasant grains of barley to finish.
Powers Single Cask Release #69934
Nose: The distillate-driven character brings a spicy and perfumed note to the fore, developing into sweet fruits with toasted American oak notes throughout.
Taste: Fruit sweetness fades revealing oak tannins, spice contribution of nutmeg and clove builds over time, while American char remains persistent.
Finish: The Pot Still spices linger, finally giving way to grains of barley.
