So what’s the Lustau edition all about and why should you be excited?

I’ve got the Powers!

I’m an unabashed fan of Powers whiskey and am of the opinion that the range contains some of the most under rated Irish whiskeys. The history of the brand is long and storied; with its founding dating all the way back to 1791. It has been an indomitable part of the Irish whiskey landscape for centuries.

‘That tastes like they made it from an ashtray’. A good friend passed the glass back towards me and shook his head, disgusted. A ten year old glass of Ardbeg, costs roughly €70 a bottle and he almost spat it back at me. I could only laugh because as much as I liked it, I could totally see his point of view.
