Unfortunately this is probably as good a price as we can expect for a decent brand of Irish Whiskey nowadays.

Thanks for the heads up.

Maybe it's just me..but never heard this brand before! Is it a good whiskey ?

One of the nicest irish whiskey. Usually can't get it in the UK. It seems to be 25 euro in Ireland at the moment.

Great price

In Ireland, Powers is considered to be a rather inferior brand, to be honest, particularly compared to Jameson, as it is widely thought of as a bit rough. However it is popular when served hot, i.e. 4/5 parts boiling water to one part whiskey, with a spoonful of sugar and a slice of lemon embedded with 4/5 cloves - great on a chilly winter evening, or as a pick-me-up when suffering from a cold.

I should add that when making a hot Powers, you should add the whiskey last.

I have had this before. Rough whiskey, not a patch on Jameson.

husbands loves it.

Whiskey is obviously a matter of taste, personally this is my number one whiskey, not sure which part you guys find as rough, I tend to drink it over ice only and find it very smooth. Ordinero I don't know where you get your information from but wonder if you mean it's the more commonly drunk whiskey as opposed to an inferior whiskey. Ireland can also be very territorial with its whiskeys Jamesons and Bushmills being more popular in the northern half of the country and Powers in the south.

Sadly not available in my tescos

By whom exactly? I understand that taste is subjective, but this is quite a sweeping statement. Personally: Single malt is my first preference, but I am happy to have this neat and find it to be very smooth and easy to drink. Couldn't drink the standard Jameson neat.

So, hot for me, most definitely

OMG! I love when people who have never tasted something make infatict comments on something and trying to give their comments some kind of authority . FYI - you're idiots. Powers wiskey is not only Ireland's biggest selling brand of wiskey, which outsells Jameson and Bushmills, it's also beautiful. It's smooth, rounded and absolutely beautiful on the rocks. Admittedly it's no 12 year single malt, but I actually prefer it to any other Irish brand and I've pretty much tried them all. I'm a big Bourbon drinker and this has very similar qualities to a good bourbon and taste nothing like blended Scotch. Thank god. Now all the major Irish bands are all owned by Pernod Ricard since the Irish Distillers group sold out to them in the 20th century, so there is an argument that Jameson, Bushmills and Powers can all taste the same, but think I can taste the difference.
In short don't listen to the crud, go buy yourself a bottle and let the good times roll.
