    The Least Worst Musings So Far....

    Written by

    I am leaving on a short trip to Kentucky while enjoying a short break from work (and my blog) and planning the next stage of my whisky adventures including starting to host tastings in Houston and adding a Whisky History Timeline to this webpage.  However I thought I would post some links to some of what I think are my better efforts of last year or so until I get back with lots of new whiskey and distillery reviews.

    The Pogues

    I was a little bit skeptical of a whiskey that branded itself the "Official Irish Whiskey of the Legendary Band". I was also a little surpised that they only appear to be the official Irish whiskey.... leaving an opportunity for someone else to become the band's official Scotch or Bourbon!   In fact the actual liquid, bottled at 40% ABV and produced by West Cork Distillers, was pretty good.   The nose has lemon peel, vanilla and bubble gum notes.  The taste is sweet with caramel, butter, soft red apples, popcorn and Diet Coke.  The was little soft and unlike Pogues concert, this one slips quietly away.  With water it gets sweeter with a little honey.
