Writers Tears, Copper Pot Irish Whiskey 40% ABV
Don't stick your nose in to get the aromas - a "mistake" some wine aficionados make with spirits - just hover above the glass and they’ll come to you, apple, honey, malt and vanilla in this case.
The attractive soft whiskey has been matured in charred Bourbon barrels and there are notes of the wood on the gentle palate. It is smooth and mellow, with mild spice and always a hint of the oak. And the finish is smooth and long.
This is just one of five Irish Tears. The others are Double Oak, Red Head, Single Pot Still and Cask Strength.
They say: Writers’ Tears is a unique marriage of Aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt Irish whiskey. Distilled entirely from barley, both malted and unmalted, this is a truly special Irish Whiskey. Writers’ Tears is triple distilled, non-peated and matured in Flame Charred American Oak bourbon casks. An award-winning whiskey that has also been included in Ian Buxton’s publication “101 Whiskeys to try before you die”.
Writer's Tears Whiskey is owned and operated by the Walsh family in County Carlow. This approachable Copper Pot is widely available at around the 45 euro mark.

As part of the launch of Lakeview Estate Single Estate Irish Whiskey, we recently visited Lakeview on the shores Lough Leann in Killarney, a beautiful destination and a superb whiskey. If you haven't see the post, check out the details here
Jonathan Mitchell, Managing Director of Mitchell & Son said, "It was a great honour for us in Mitchells that the Single Malt Shop is launching a single cask of Green Spot 10 year old whiskey. Our original Mitchell's Green Spot was in fact also a 10 year old whiskey so it's very exciting to see it back again so many decades later.
I wish The Single Malt Shop every success with the launch of this excellent, single pot still release."
