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 Whiskey Distillery Co., also owner of The Irishman Brands.

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 Whiskey has many varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ (or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known). Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
