Pogues Irish Whiskey – Now in US Market

BOSTON – The US market is now offering the known Irish whiskey from The Pogues. This Irish whiskey kicked off in the 1980’s by one of the only two independently owned and operated distilleries in Ireland – the West Cork Distillers. The Pogues is made with exceptional full body with smooth-finishing blends giving the best sample of brown spirits over the years.

It would be great to note that West Cork is Ireland’s only whiskey producer to still malt its own barley, which enables exceptional precision and control over flavor profile.

With that great brown spirits samples for many years, the band which is famous for Fairytale in New York and other hits had been significantly involved in the making of The Pogues Irish Whisky from. With richness of the band’s great spirit and character as well as its poetic rebelliousness, The Pogues Irish Whiskey is uniquely blend of fifty-percent 10-year single malt Irish whiskey which aged in sherry casks; and the half thereof is 5-7 year Irish grain whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks. Unsurprisingly, we have now the great, sweet tasting and aromatic blend of malts and cracked nuts producing and intense flavor.
