Writers Tears Blended Irish Whiskey

Writers TearsThe Middleton distillery in Cork, Ireland is well known for producing classic and popular Irish whiskies such as Jameson, Tullamore Dew, and Greenspot. For whisky lovers however, it is often what they are not famous for that draws us to them. Writers Tears is just one of those - an Irish whiskey, blended together from pot-distilled whiskies and single malts, bottled at 40% ABV and is said to have been a favourite style of whisky for Irish writers of the 18th century.

Nose: Wonderfully light and unassuming, fresh grapefruit juice and bright lime zest are most apparent, with that classic light Irish whiskey nose of pencil eraser present in the background.

    Wow! I thought they'd all been drunk by now. Thanks for the heads-up Dennis.

    Xmas is just around the corner so who knows - you may get a bite from someone looking to give "their" Dennis a special bottle! :)

  • Dennis Wallace commented on Forty Creek Heart of Gold:

    I have an unopened bottle of Forty Creek "Heart of Gold" from lot "1972" bottle number "3714" in its original box. What makes it unique is that it is autographed to me, by John Hall in 2013, inscribed in Gold Ink on the back of the bottle. It is a one of a kind collectors item, and I am prepared to part with it for the right price.

  • Dan commented on Ezra Brooks 7 Year Old:

    Did you know that it's $63.50 in Quebec? The Ezra Brooks Black Label is pretty much the same price in both Ontario ($29.95) and Quebec ($29.90), though. I do wonder when the LCBO will raise the price to bring it more in line with Wild Turkey Rare Breed and other similar higher proof bourbons.
