Writers Tears is a slightly sweet triple distilled Irish whiskey, that is made from 40% pot still and 60% malt whiskeys. The result is a honey and non-smoky whiskey, with delicate fruit notes. Aged in bourbon casks, this whiskey is the ideal choice for people who have never tried Irish whiskey before. Jim Murray – the world-famous author of "Whiskey Bible" gives this whiskey 93 points and the well known author Ian Buxton added it to its list of "101 World whiskeys to try before you die."
Sweet honey tones with a hint of citrus crusts
The honey gently unfolds on the palate. Tender blend of golden malt and vanilla. A hint of green apple and butterscotch combined with just a pinch of oak aroma and ginger. Long, warm and elegant finish, with subtle hints of milk chocolate and almonds
The inspiration for Writers’ Tears Double Oak was sparked when we first collaborated with the Legaret Family and Allary Cooperage in France for our Writers’ Tears Copper Pot Deau XO Cognac Cask Finish.
The complex flavours of summer fruits and chocolate undertones from the Cognac cask led to Writers’ Tears newest creation – Writers’ Tears Double Oak. This latest expression showcases the unique attributes that this partnership with the Legaret family brings to our award-winning whiskey
Writers’ Tears Double Oak is created using a unique combination of two casks, American Oak Casks from Kentucky and French Oak Cognac Casks from France to perfectly finish a unique marriage of aged Single Malt and Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey which we proudly call Writers’ Tears Double Oak.
