The Pogues Irish Whiskey Bottle
The Pogues Irish Whiskey is a unique blend of 50% 10-year single malt Irish whiskey aged in sherry oak casks and seven year old single malt Irish whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks and 50% four year Irish grain whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks. The liquid has an aroma of malts and cracked nuts, with a sweet taste and a smooth, intense flavour. Notably, West Cork is Ireland’s only whiskey producer to malt its own barley, enabling exceptional precision and control over flavour profile. It is distilled using ingredients indigenous to Ireland, including locally grown grain and spring water from the idyllic River Ilen. It’s carefully crafted in small batches in handmade copper stills at West Cork’s distillery in Skibbereen, the cultural home of Irish whiskey.
Wine Enthusiast"The official Irish whiskey of the legendary band," this robust spirit is made at West Cork Distillers, one of two remaining 100% independently owned and operated distilleries in Ireland. The aromas suggest stone fruit and a whiff of smoke. The palate also shows smoke, plus dried apricot richness and a mouthwatering saline finish. A mix of whiskies aged 5 to 10 years.
