Writer's Tears

Writer Tears

Writers Tears is leading the charge to recreate some of the great whiskies of 100 years
ago. Writers Tears is a Vatting of Pure Pot Still and Single Malt (proportions are a closely
guarded secret). The resulting whiskey is one of Ireland’s highest rated whiskies in the
Whisky Bible.

Writer Tears has a glossy pot still character; rather than the usual fruity firmness, the
recognizable pot still traits are shrouded in soft honey tones which dovertail with
lightening kumquat­citrus notes. The finish is relatively long with an old­fashioned cough
sweet fruitiness.
