Spiced, rich palate with rose petal jelly and lemon curd. Creamy vanilla, hints of dried herbs and cinnamon. Floral, herbal finish. Caramel on the tail.

Smooth and oily textured. Even at the full 46% it is soft and easy to drink. Flavours of fresh pineapple, lemon, oranges, marmalade and ginger snap with some honey and oak.
Whiskey – Blends
Typically a blend of triple distilled pot still and grain whiskeys. Smooth yet robust, excellent with a few drops of water, as well as for Irish coffee and Hot Irish coffee. Warm cereal notes with lots of spice and a touch of honey.
Crested is made with older aged Jameson with a high measure of pure pot-still whiskey in the mix, a fair proportion of which has been aged in sherry casks to add spicy sweetness.
Jameson Select Reserve Black Barrel
Matured in double-charred barrels, this whiskey presents intense notes of vanilla, caramel, toasted wood, fruit and warm spice.
Powers 12 Year old, like the standard Powers, is a blend with a good dollop of pot still content (making up the majority of the blend). Most ageing is done in ex-bourbon casks with a small amount also aged in sherry wood. In practice there are actually some very old whiskeys in this blend, some as old 20/21 years old.
Varying styles of pot still whiskeys dominate this luxury blend, which has only a small amount of grain whiskey added to bring some extra smoothness.
