Writer’s Tears has been one of my favourite Irish whiskeys since we first had it, despite the box tax. Here’s the link to the first review if you’d like to check it out, and here’s what we thought this time:

colour
Simon – deep apple press
Brian – tiger eyes
Matt – gold

nose
Simon – sweet cake bubblegum
Brian – not strong, pine
Matt – public swimming pool, frosting, icing sugar

neat
Simon – silky smooth, light apple, well constructed
Brian – pleasant, clean, crisp, chocolatey
Matt – pleasant floral sweetness, burn subtle, nectar

finish
Simon – slight spice
Brian – nice
Matt – hint of lingering burn, tail long but flavour carries it

overall
Simon – 8/10
Brian – 8.6/10
Matt – 8/10

Writer’s Tears Irish Whiskey – 40% 750ml – $47.80 – Ireland

Try it? Yes! But it? Yes!
