The Pogues Single Malt Whiskey

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Pogues Single Malt Whiskey to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

The Pogues Single Malt Bottling Note

Another 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

Pleasant enough

I have just read some of the poor reviews and disagree! It's pleasant easy drinking and good value for money you get what you pay for whisky expert's

A very original and memorable malt

This is not your typical Irish whiskey. Packs a real kick despite being only 40 abv, an unusually strong body for a triple distilled Irish. It really needs some air and water first. Peanuts, chocolate and roasted seeds on the nose, palette and finish. This is an experimental and complex malt that simply isn't for everyone, just like The Pogues music itself. I really respect the originality and strong character of this whiskey. Just be prepared to keep an open mind about this one!

This whiskey can Pog Mo Thoin!

Really not great at all.
Could just about be drank with a cola, and if you have to throw in some cola, you might as well by Jack Daniels, which is a far nicer drink then this.... and that kind says something right.

Such a shame, as you would think a bit of love would be throw in, if you put your name to something. This stream of whiskey will not be following....

Very unpleasant whiskey

I received this whiskey as a Christmas present. I drink scotch and Irish and this is just a very unpleasant drink. I have thrown 99% of the whiskey down the drain.

Average whiskey with novelty bottle & band association

Not the best but not the worst, tastes like a standard blended whisky & apart from the bottle & association with the Pogues would only sell for the same price. Mellow flavour which can be drunk on its own or mixed, worth a try if reasonably priced but not as a single malt.

Avoid. Really.

Absolutely disgusting, tastes like industrial alcohol laced with methylated spirits - all negative reviews are spot on.

Light, floral and lovely

I was expecting Jameson, but no. This is light, floral and with a hint of butterscotch. Smooth and enjoyable. A very pleasant surprise.

Nice and cheap experimental malt

I bought and tried this malt before I even read any reviews, so I didn't know what to expect. Got it on sale for the price of a blend, so I really wasn't expecting much. However I am pleasantly impressed with this one. It's a bit rough for a malt, but overall it tastes great and I can't think of any other whiskey that tastes like this one. Distinct notes of peanuts, chocolate and roasted seeds, just like it says on the bottle. Definitely an experimental malt here and well worth a try. I will be buying it again for some variety in my collection. I'm really not sure what all the 1 star reviewers were drinking actually. Perhaps a bad batch?
