Writers Tears Whiskey
This week I would like to recommend an award-winning Irish whiskey called Writers Tears.
This Irish whiskey won the best blended whiskey for under €50 in the Irish Whiskey Awards 2013, and there’s no wonder why as this is a very enjoyable whiskey.
Writers Tears is a blend of malt whiskey and pot still whiskey (60% malt, 40% pot still), and is matured and aged in American Oak Bourbon casks. It is produced by Walsh Whiskey Distillery in Carlow.
This Irish whiskey gives aromas of green apples with a soft touch of vanilla. This is followed up on the palate with spice, a small bit of ginger and oak. The whiskey has a lingering finish that leaves you wanting more.
A bottle of this award-winning whiskey will cost around €45.
