    I was introduced to Writers Tears about eight years ago at, what is now, Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on Dawson Street in Dublin, Ireland. I took a chance with one free taste, and I immediately bought a bottle. If you desire an easy drinking, light tasting whiskey with no major after taste or burn, then I would suggest Writers Tears. This is not a 21 year old Balvenie, top shelf Macallan, or one of the six Classic Malts of Scotland. This is simply an easy drinking whiskey. My wife prefers Writers Tears served neat. ENJOY!

    Great drink, 2/3rds through the bottle now and it's a favorite. Lovely balance, I don't pick up a hot finish at all. Wonderful irish character, not overly complex and doesn't get dragged into overly perfumed or honeyed taste, just lovely. Agree it's nicer than green spot, at least the low end green spot ( haven't tried the other spots ). This is in my favorite 5 standard after balvennie, hp18, talisker, glengoyne

    Sweet and creamy, but finishes a little hot. A decent quality young blend.

    Wow! Glorious whiskey. Smooth, creamy; long legs, long finish. The Irish Pot Still character shines through and the single malt adds complexity; so much so that, for me, Writer's Tears nudges ahead of Green Spot. A very good price for a lovely whiskey. Recommended.

    Very nice, well priced. Easy drinking and very sessionable. Light, refreshing, great for an evening on a patio watching the sunset or by the ocean. Some may want a little more punch/poke, but great for whisky newbs.

    Fabulous whiskey from Ireland. It is a sort of malt blend although only part is from malted barley. Some pot still unmalted barley is also used - all triple distilled and beautifully blended into a really smooth and satisfying spirit. I really love this stuff despite its young age.
