Powers Irish Whiskey has changed....

"Powers Gold Label Relaunches with a new look. Powers relaunches its iconic Gold Label whiskey with new look packaging, seeing a return to its original export strength of 43.2% ABV and non-chill filtration."

A mistake, in my book. Higher fusel alcohols, harsher (and I don't mind a higher proof). Plain old off-putting.

This had been my go-to product when I can't afford Redbreast. I won't be buying the new bottle with it's cork and higher price point, they've lost a customer. Dammit, if you want to add a product, that's fine, but don't change your base product and pull the rug out from under your loyal customers!

Try it somewhere when you can taste just a bit. But, you have been warned.
