Writers Tears is a nod to Ireland’s great writers, playwrights and poets, of which there were a great many. All writers - except for the liars, that is - suffer from writer’s block and many sought inspiration from a glass of “The Water of Life”, in other words whiskey. According to the packaging, it is said that when an Irish writer cried, he cried tears of whiskey.
Writers Tears is an attempt to recreate the whiskies of yesteryear with a vatting of pure Pot Still and Irish single malt, although the proportions are a closely-guarded secret. Excellent stuff!
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Fruity, soft and crisp. Apples and poached pears. A hint of oak and citrus..
Palate: A stunning balance of oak and juicy fruit with a touch of scorched richness and a nicely astringent finish.
Retails for around £30-35
