Writers Tears

Copper Pot

Tasting Notes

Smooth, aromatic, light, floral with a hint of lemon.
 
Appearance / Colour
Classic malt, rich yellow gold.
 
Smell / Nose
The aroma reminds us of honey and marmalade streaking the fruity barley.
 
Taste / Palate
The first thing you notice about Writer’s Tears is the lovely round body and full rich flavor, very smooth initially, but developing a little tingle or slight pepperiness on the palate. It's very aromatic and floral malt with a faint suggestion of lemon right in the end - a hint of citrus and an initial flourish of spicy, malty sweetness that quickly leaves the stage to drier, firmer characters.
 
Finish
The honey-marmalade comes back as an echo of the aroma to provide the final moments of a decently long finish.

Irish golden tears.

This Irish Whiskey is a blend of single pot still and malt Whiskey. Light, sweet and wonderful, it's a longtime favourite with our Members. 
 
Many Irish writers suffered from ‘Writer's Block’ and it was said that when they cried they cried tears of Whiskey. Most, if not all of them, sought comfort and inspiration from “The Water of Life” (Whiskey). The relaxing characteristics of Whiskey helped many of them overcome writers block and produce inspired works of poetry, prose and plays. Writer’s Tears, a fairly new Whiskey, is a salute to these great Irish writers.
 
Writer's Tears Whiskey is distilled in the same old tradition that has existed in Ireland for hundreds of years (triple distilled, 100% pure pot still Whiskey, no grain, matured in oak bourbon barrels, non-chill filtered) and is owned by the Walsh Family, also owners of The Irishman Brands.

Update: I'm pleased that I can actually purchase this now. Big up to Flavior for coming through. As far as the whiskey goes, it's still good. It definitely has much more of a speyside scotch quality to it. For an Irish I'd much rather have geeenspot or teeling (or Jamison/bush mills/powers for that matter), but as a cheaper alternative to scotch that's also not as pronounced this is a good buy.
Steven
Very smooth and no burn, very nice!
Bill
Lighter than I expected, but very nice, nonetheless. Lovely bottle (and a great name!)
Byron
A bit harsher than expected.
Dave
Very smooth with a nice finish.
Eric
Smooth, no burn and tasted delightful
Kennedi
I usually drink nicer scotches. This has been my favorite bottle at a very reasonable price!
Dan
A hint of floral spice in the nose. Initially sweet with a long dry finish. A nice whiskey, I think I like it a little better than Jameson.
Derek
👍
Justin
Overall great taste, smooth finish, touch of smoke, almost Jameson with less bite
Brian
This is definitely a go to for me now. I'm normally a Jameson drinker. Writer's Tears aromas and flavors are very light, crisp, and refreshing. This is something I plan on keeping in stock for my whiskey stable.
Brian
Not bad, about the same as Jamison
anonymous
Beautifully fruit forward, warm spice, delicate citrus and oak. Long warm finish.
Marc
Great nose - caramel first, then some spice - and then a great mouthful of flavor. This is not a "challenging" whisky, but it is very worthwhile.
Kevin
A very smooth Irish whiskey if you like green spot, very good value
Lorenzo
I am normally a scotch drinker, but this Irish Whiskey is a gem, smooth, with a sweeter finish. Great buy, I am definitely getting another bottle.
Edward
Smooth great after taste
Craig
I was anxious to taste the Quinta Ruban, but was surprised to find that of the three I preferred the Irish Writers Tears!
John
Delicious and complex
Donald
Tasted with ice. Light nose and just enough burn with the finish. I like it better than the citrus of the SAI blended scotch whisky.
Kenneth
I really enjoy this after a day of work. Very smooth and lets me forget the day!
Dana
Aroma/nose: honey and spring grass or hay. Taste/palate: honey then pepper and lemon, maybe a hint of pear. Aromatic and sweet. Finish: persistent lemon and citrus, with oak. My wife said coconut, which I can kind of see. After a long pause there is lemon and marmalade and malt. This is really good and I am totally pissed that it's out of stock.
John
thoroughly enjoyed this tasting box. Already looking forward to the next one. Would like to see better deals, but I understand with the qualify of these drinks, the deals are as good as it gets. :)
Denis
Хороший баланс. Вкус неяркий, но сбалансированный. Отсутствует дымность. Непривычно.
Mathew
Nice, subtle flavor, fantastic quality for the price.
Dave
Just the kind of sip that I like. Mellow with great and slightly sweet aftertaste on the tongue. Neat with whiskey rocks.
Bas
Soft, smooth, very nice
Casey
Great....
Michael
Very clean finish. Extremely smooth
Cheyne
Yeah no wonder this is sold out. I recently tried Green Spot as my first single pot still Irish, and I have to say this is head and shoulders above. I'm doing whatever I can to buy multiple bottles next time this stuff comes around. Beautiful stuff.
Gian
This is exaclty the kind of easy drinking whiskey I'd like to add to my stash. Would love to purchase it, but apparently they can only procure 5 bottles for sale at a time.
Andrew
Everyone is complaining about where's the price. Common sense it is out of stock so there is no price. When it's back in Stock there will be a price. I believe it is about 25.00, if I remember correctly when I ordered a few bottles last week
Jarett
Very light on the palette with lots of subtle flavored, mostly gentle sweetness.
Russell
Very smooth, one of my favorites but I can never buy it because it sells out so fast!
Nicholas
Very smooth and mellow. For my first taster, makes me excited for more.
anonymous

Vincent
That was definitely my favorite!!
anonymous
Extremely smooth great flavor
Douglas
The sample was a pleasant surprise. Mild yet tasty. Honey and fruit aroma even had my wife curious to try it. Where's the price?
Andy
I love this Irish whisky very smooth. It has become my favorite drink.
Patrick
Tastes like the poitin they make on Achill Island.
anonymous
I tried this with two other people. All of us had the same thought. Cough syrup.
Joe
Interesting. Loved it, yet not able to order it? Why send a sample if it can't be purchased? Very disappointed.
Douglas
Smooth. Very nice neat and easy to enjoy.
Graham
A very floral front with a sweet honey finish. Very light on the tongue.
Jonathon

My favorite in the starter pack, and the favorite of the lucky person I shared with too. I can't wait to buy a whole bottle.
DANIEL
Sweet and flavorful. Smooth with a little kick at the finish. Can't wait to get the whole bottle...

With a little water...very smooth and described well in the flavor spiral.

Smooth finish
Hugh
Wonderful whisky, my favorite in the starter pack. It has a mild, sweet taste to it. I definitely want this in a full size bottle. I would have never found it, if not for Flaviar. Thank You!
Corey
Smooth and clean. Not to my liking though, but it's just my pallet. I like stronger stuff.
Christopher
Very smooth and clean.
Hans
Spectacular, rivals the best Scotch that I've tried
Gregory
Very pleasant finish. To me it was a little rough in the middle; maybe the spicy or copper coming through. But the finish is amazing.
Van
Very light and smooth.
Jeff
Easy to drink. Flavorful for it's price. Finish is a bit hot and dry like a rye whiskey.
Mani
Nothing special
iamERICan
Smooth Taste, Good Finish
Craig
Smooth-as-glass finish, light. Enjoyed it very much.
Don
Very sweet whiskey. The honey seems to stand out the most.
Virgil
Very good. Easy on the nose with a clean finish.
tyler
One of the most superb whiskey's I have ever tasted!
Seth
Smooth. Very drinkable. I enjoyed it the most out of the three in the welcome box.
Mike
Like
Joshua
Has a really great toasted cereal taste to it with just the right amount of sweetness.
Phillip
Very nice and surprisingly smooth.
Corey
Decent whiskey. A little harsh on its own, but I added a smidge of water and it opened up. Sweeter. Faint honey taste. On the whole a pretty decent Irish whiskey.
Janis
Not bad. Basic Irish whiskey.
Jeremiah
Decent but not as good as Blanton's.
Colin
Surprisingly good for a blend 👌🏻
Sam
Smooth and very tasty.
Bradley
One of thee most superb whiskey's o have ever tasted!
Bryan
New to Irish whisky, but enjoyed the floral/honey aromas with a long, sweet finish. The oak lingers on the palette...
Andrew
Wonderfully sweet and light with a good burning depth charge to the chest. Honey, apple, and caramel is what we tasted in this house. When can I buy a bottle?!?!
Christopher
Nice nose, hints of dates, citrus but subtle. Smooth and ephemeral on the back end. I'm not a big fan of Irish whiskey but this changed my mind.
Mike
Nice light Irish whiskey that isn't solely one note. Has a bit of honey, biscuit and citrus on the palate with zero burn.
Rick
Very mild with hardly any bite. Not bad, like a smoother Jameson.
Leif
I tried this in the flavor pack and liked it. Not enough to keep on stock in my bar, but it was nice.
Jan
Beautifully Irish!
