Member Reviews and Ratings of Writers' Tears Double Oak
Opened the bottle on St. Patrick's day 2021. Tasty marriage of vanilla & cinnamon. So smooth...will be buying another soon.
I was pleasantly surprised by Writers Tears. Enjoyable flavors and warmth without an overpowering burn or bite. Great dram for the price.
Very smooth finish! Hints of vanilla
Taste a little oaky but it’s like drinking Chardonnay
Very unique nose! Reminded me of grape bubble gum with hints of caramel. Initial taste is sweet vanilla and caramel, got a little of the grape on the finish and some lingering cinnamon on the finish.
Didn’t like the first drink, but the next time I drank it, I found it much better. Great flavor.
Not too shabby
A shining example of the new wave of Irish whiskeys. The pear note is mouth watering. Just like the Redbreast 12, I return to this one again and again.
excellent, smooth finish, sweet, but not over the top sweet....love the double aging of Bourbon and Cognac barrels.
The main appeal for me is it’s unlike other good Irish whiskey I’ve had. It’s very distinct and has notes I haven’t had in green spot, redbreast, and I love love it
The vanilla and pear notes really jump out when you open the bottle. The finish is spicy yet smooth. I couldn’t make out the chocolate/cocoa notes, and that was disappointing.
A solid whiskey but it pales in comparison to Redbreast and Jameson Black Barrel.
Loved it! Sweet and slightly spicy, a beautiful blend.
I really enjoyed this one. Instantly it is towards the top of my favorite Irish whiskys. Very smooth with a warming sensation. I get a lot of vanilla but not overpowering.
Another winner; semi sweet with a slight spicy finish.
There's a subtlety in the flavors after a couple of sippings. Plenty smooth for an Irish whiskey––it veers toward bourbon territory. The oak combination creates some fun exploring and the hints of spice suit my palate well.
The aroma is warm with a balance of dried fruit, spiced bread, and a hint of alcohol. I let the whiskey breathe and tasted it "neat." The liquid has body and coats the tongue with rich flavors of bread pudding and a hint of spice. Although it is definitely a whiskey in the back of the throat, it has all of the positive qualities of an expensive rum. I want to say, I don't drink whiskey- Ever! I bought this because of the name and the flavor profile sounded promising for my husband. It is the first whiskey I have smelled and was encouraged enough to willingly have a glass.
I really didn't find anything special about this one aside from its cool name.
Found this at Walmart in a gift set with 2 glasses for $38. After a few sips, it coverted this bourban man to Irish whisky!
This one grew on me. My first taste, caused me to think I made a mistake. But that is the thing with whiskey, sometimes it is the mood you are in. This is not for the casual drinker, it is for the person that wants to sit and investigate and hunt for all of the flavors this reveals. A lot of wood and dark and citrus fruit hidden in this one with a light pepper throughout.
Not impressed with this one. The flavor profile may be on point for everything but any zest or spice. This is a VERY mild whiskey. After a few sips, I don't even taste it anymore. Easy to drink, but a little too smooth for my taste.
I love it! This is my new favorite Irish whisky. It even edged out Redbreast, which I didn't think was possible. It has a unique depth and complexity under a very smooth taste.
I was very impressed. Great taste, perfect for sipping at the end of a long day!
Surprised how nice it was. Smooth, warm, with a bit of vanilla.
This is my new go to whiskey, I can’t believe how smooth it is!
One of the top 3 in my bar. Very smooth.
Writers tears is simply one of my favorites and this double oaked is just as great. I would say that the RedHead is the best but impossible to find. Its smooth finish and low cost make it a firm favorite.
This is my favorite Irish whisky! The blending of both styles and having them aged in both Bourbon and Cognac barrels creates a wonderful finish. I picked up 2 bottles of this at the Dublin airport last year, when it wasn't being exported. I am overjoyed to be able to get it through Flaviar.
For sure a great go-to Irish Whiskey. Smooth and flavorful, I find this to be a good crowd pleasing gateway whiskey to bring people to the Irish side.
Mild peat, smooth on front, slight bite at the end. Neat
Amazing complexity for Irish whisky. Takes ice well, but is smooth enough to drink straight. Either way is a great experience.
I get the appeal...its damn smooth, though I admit I didnt detect a lot the tasting notes listed. Almost like a Jameson without the spice.
Tastes a bit young, but there are some great things going on here. Excellent for the price. Would definitely buy again.
