The Pogues Single Malt Irish Whiskey (70cl)
Distilled at West Cork Distillers. Produced in small pot stills, in batches of less than 700 litres. Aged in double-charred ex-bourbon casks, for smooth vanilla notes. Finished in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, giving fruit and nutty aromas.
Nose – slightly savoury, with a hint of Parma violets. Nutty aromas of toasted seeds, caramel brittle and chocolate covered peanut.
Taste – woody spice and cinnamon, followed by chocolate covered peanuts, sesame snaps, nougat and marshmallows.
Finish – whilst there is depth here, the finish is mellow and smooth.
Alcohol Vol: 40%
