Writers Tears Pot Still 70cl 40°

Distillery : Writers Tears company / Country : Ireland / Reference: : 22119

In Ireland, whiskey taxes used to be based over the amount of malted barley used to produce the spirit. As Irishmen avoided taxes, non malted barley and malted barley were mixed to obtain Pot Still Whiskey. This is the true tradition of the land where the vine does not grow.

This Pot Still release is a combination of Pure Pot Still and Irish Single Malt, with proportions kept secret. It is more round and sweet, and suits perfectly the modern palate.

Today, Writers Tears ages in American Bourbon barrels, like many other renowned Scotch Single Malts. We may find an intense and luscious coconut aroma to it, over a cereal backdrop that comes from its special composition.

Writers Tears is evocative of the secret inspiration poets used to draw from Pot Still Whiskeys. These spirits were highly sought after by Irish writers in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Colour: light amber.

Nose: a Pot Still whiskey with a lot of character. Unlike the fruity nose of Irish whiskeys, it develops a distinctive nose of honeyed kumquat and citrus.

Palate: well balanced, the tasting mingles sweet and strong notes of honeyed acacia, with vanilla and a structured maltiness.

Finish: long and generous.
