Old Pogue Master’s Select is a handcrafted premium small batch Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey from one of the original Kentucky bourbon whiskey families. This is a very smooth but flavorful bourbon that I was introduced to last year through a good friend. I highly recommend it.
Old Pogue has a very nice aroma to it; it is deep but very pleasing. On the nose I got subtle hints of maple and vanilla and some other flavors that I couldn’t readily identify.
This is where you see the magic of Old Pogue. This selection is aged for 9 years and it is very apparent during your first sip. Normally I prefer to mix my bourbon but Pogue is so smooth there is no better way to enjoy it other than neat. I got a nice rich sweetness that was nicely complimented with a spicy kick on the finish.
Pogue is a very well-balanced bourbon that isn’t too light or heavy on the palette.
The finish was somewhat silky and moderately long with lingering notes of sweet, earth and spice.
Old Pogue Master’s Selection is a very solid bourbon to enjoy neat. The flavors are pronounced and more importantly tasty. Because it is so smooth I wouldn’t hesitate to suggest this bottle to any bourbon enthusiast or anyone looking a nice dark liquor. It is worth ever penny of the $48.00 dollar price tag. Cheers!
