The Pogues Single Malt Bottling Note

Another brilliant Irish whiskey from The Pogues (yes, the band) and West Cork Distillers. The band's first foray into the world of whiskey was a brilliant Irish blend, and now we have a single malt, aged in bourbon oak casks before it was bottled up at 40% ABV. Now we're going to have Fairytale of New York stuck in our heads for the rest of the day.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fairly floral, with lavendar, sesame snaps, caramelised nuts and salted chocolate.

Palate: Dry oak spice and chai spices, with peanut butter, s'mores and floral malt.

Finish: A gentle finish of lingering caramel alongside cinnamon stick.

Pogues Single Malt Whiskey Reviews

Staggeringly bad!!

I couldn't believe how bad this tastes. I thought I'd got a bad bottle but reading the reviews it appears not!! Do the makers not taste this stuff before selling it? The blended version is great, so why sell this poison?

It looks like Whiskey... that's about it. Absolutely vile, weird taste. How can a single malt taste this bad? I wouldn't wish this disgusting liquid on my worst enemy. Avoid at all costs.

The finest motor oil you can drink... probably...

One could only admire the craftsmanship put into the development of that exquisite taste of burned motor oil and old army boots! Easily one of the most memorable flavours I have tasted since I once fell into an old sewer back when I was too young to experience the pleasure of that divine liquid.

Tastes like Shane MacGowan's vomit

Worst Whiskey I've ever tasted.

Love The Pogues. Don’t love this.

Rubbery, astringent, bizarre, and a horrible red (and presumably non recyclable) bottle. If Irish is your thing and you’re on a budget, stick to Black Bush.

Agree. Absolutely dreadful stuff. It should not be called whiskey. Awful spell of rotting sprouts with a similar aftertaste. It was so bad I wondered if it had been spiked. DO NOT DRINK

There are better choices...

Not sure if the nose and taste was intended to reflect the bands punk like tendencies, but this is overpriced, bad smelling and bad tasting whiskey. The verdict was that it was washed in poo... not recommended

stick to Jamesons

rotting vegetation meets washing machine door seal stagnant water on the nose , vodka carried in a pine bucket from the still to a worn out barrel with 3 peanuts in it on the palate, a long sour aftertaste of overpriced bullshit , never never never again

Different, a great novelty

On first glass, a very floral, with a splash of cabbage whiff. The palette is quite complex, not in an unpleasant way, almost dark chocolate with ginger aftertaste

Dreadful after taste

I've never encountered such a dizzying after taste. It's remnant of Valt vodka with an overpowering nutty/caramel finish. Bought this on sale at £18 and I have been robbed.

Stick with Jameson Caskmates Stout edition or Tullamore Dew for the price point. Order a measure in a bar, at most, if curiosity gets the better of you.
