Writers Tears Copper Pot

70 cl

This is a fine whiskey, which strictly speaking is a blend but only contains pot still whiskey and malt whiskey. Unlike other blends it does not contain and grain whiskey. This has been extremely popular since it was first released and is a favourite with our staff.

Writers Tears won the award of Best Irish Blend Under €50 in the 2013 Irish Whiskey Awards. A blend of pure pot still whiskey and malt whiskey. A deliciously soft, sweet, easy drinking dram.

'A glossy pot still character: rather than the usual fruity firmness, the recognisable pot still traits are shrouded in soft honey tones which dovetail with lightening kumquat-citrus tones. Quite a curious, but always deliciously appealing animal. Works beautifully well: the arrival is an alternating delivery of soft and hard waves, the former showing a more bitter, almost myopic determination to hammer home its traditional pot still stand point; the sweeter more yielding notes dissolve with little ot no resistance, leaving an acaia honeyed trail................' 93 Points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010
