I have two bottles of Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey in front of me, one has an additional label stating: "Three Swallow"
also the color is lighter than the other Gold Label bottle and the
proof is 80 with 40% Alc/Vol. vs 86 proof with 43.2% Alc/vol. on the NON "Three Swallow" bottle. My Question is: Is the "Three Swallow" Gold Label still on the market for purchase? Thank you in advance.

We've never seen Powers bottled at a 43.2% ABV so this could be either an old bottling, or if not an export strength for a different market to ours, which would tend to be unusual with a product such as this.
The previous labelling of Powers had a 'Three Swallows' neck collar type label on them, but the current bottles don't. These bottles would no longer be around to purchase so if you have one, there might be a certain collectability in it.
Hope this helps!
