Irish golden tears.

Pure pot still Whiskey (yes, Irish write it Whiskey) is a type of Whiskey traditionally made from a mixture of malted and unmalted barley distilled in copper pot still. It is unique to Ireland. Not to be confused with blended Whiskey, which is a mixture of column still unmalted grain Whiskey and pot still single malt Whiskey, "copper pot" is a single Whiskey made from a batch of barley composed of both unmalted and malted barley that has been distilled in a pot still.
 
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.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. It was St.Patrick who made the shamrock so popular.

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.

Loved the more complicated nose and taste! Very, very good.

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.
