Writers Tears is a light, sweet Irish whiskey made using a mix of single pot still and single malt whiskeys, resulting in oodles of honey’d, fruity notes. Wonderfully easy to drink, it would make for a great introduction to Irish whiskey for folks new to the spirit. No writers were harmed in the making of this whiskey.
Tasting note: Flawless, bright gold appearance. One of the most pristine and delicate Irish aromas we’ve experienced with a deliciously fruity edge including notes of peach and pear over a distinctively Irish pot still base. Several minutes aeration draws out banana cake and flashes of apple along with hints of vanilla and manuka honey. Supremely soft entry builds into a medium bodied whiskey of stunning purity, achieving a wonderful fusion with a gently spiced, fruity, grainy profile followed by a burst of butterscotch at mid palate. Soft, slightly oily mouthfeel. Finish is dry and understated with notes of vanilla and cereal followed by a subtle butterscotch fade. In a word ‘elegant’, in fact, so lacy and light, it’s hard to believe this is whiskey, such is its softness. Must try Irish. Non Chill filtered. 40% Alc./Vol.
Writers Tears Pot Still Irish Whiskey delivers a wonderful combination of soft bourbon notes with an undercurrent of light malt with crisp, mouth watering bursts of honey and spice. This is a throwback to the last century in Ireland where spiced Pure Pot Still Whiskey was married with floral single malt.
