A classy and unique Irish Whiskey.

Writers' Tears Whiskey is a unique booze made from distilled tears of renowned authors. We're joking of course. Great name, though. Writers' Tears Cask Strength is a straight-forward and amazing Irish Whiskey, but it is quite unique in two ways. First, it's a single pot still Whiskey, which is not unlike single malt. It means it's a Whiskey made by a single distillery from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, distilled in a pot still. The idea of adding unmalted raw barley to the mix came up back in the 18th century when the English king taxed malted barley.

The second thing that makes this expression unique is they make only two thousand bottles each year. And the bottles they make, oh, boy! This one was bottled in 2017 and it's a Whiskey with deep and complex flavors. Elegant chocolate notes and rich blackberries will be a great companion while you sit snuggly in your recliner and read a good book. Do look away from words when you're sipping it, though. It's worth it.

Angela,
Rare cask limited edition 2016 (bottle 2082 of 2640, brewed by Bernard Walsh). This is one of the smoothest, richest, layered Irish whiskey I've ever had the privilege to taste. With little smokiness, but not too sweet, it has tiny vanilla notes mixed with a hint of apple, but with so many layers it really is dependent on what you had eaten, how open your palate is, and which glad it is served in. I tasted much more richness in the flute than when shipped in a charger. The air lightens the taste a bit. Don't run this one with ice. It's definitely not necessary.

Smooth.

Seth,
Very smooth and a nice glass. More spice and pepper than any other flavors. A little melon comes on later but not much else stand out.

Antti,
It is a classic, intense, Cask Strength Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey with an elegant & aromatic birth.; while a fresh & fruity life; leads to a long & spicy death.

Smells amazing. My first Irish whiskey, I’m used to Scottish single malt. It went down smooth, the burning sensation came after. I let it breathe in the glass for a couple of minutes for my second go and it was much smoother with a sweet after taste, almost like apples. I think it’s worth it. Bought a bottle at my local liquor store as they had it in stock.
