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

Very unpleasant

Even ginger ale didn't make better this stuff

Silky smooth and very pleasant.

I don't really understand the harshly negative views on here. OK, it isn't complex but it is as smooth as silk and goes down very easily. It is also unlike any other whisky or whiskey that I've tried, with quite a wine-like quality. To the bloke who said he threw it down the sink: please send it my way next time, I'll cover your postage.

Don't do it.

This is the only whisky I've thrown down the sink. Actively unpleasant cotton like mouth feel.

Disappointing malt Irish

Not that good, very disappointing. My usual is Bushmills original which is much nicer.

Never again!

With regards to a previous review, “you get what you pay for” is incorrect - at least as far as whisky is concerned. Black Bottle and Ballantine’s Finest are fantastic drams which can be found £5-10 cheaper than this. Or Ancnoc 12 is a fine example of an entry level speysider only a couple of pounds more. This is just a horrible gimmicky drink with no love put into it. Perhaps it was blended, tasted and passed by Shane MacGowan himself?

Not great

Drinkable if nothing else

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....
