Writers Tears Double Oak Irish Whiskey 700ml
Dashes of sweet vanilla, notes of cinnamon, plum & poached pear, the Writers Tears Double Oak Irish Whiskey tastes of pressed grapes and citrus zest. The finish sings with chocolate undertones and lingering spice.
19th and early 20th century Ireland was a golden era both for Irish whiskey and, perhaps coincidentally, for great Irish novelists, poets, and playwrights. Ireland was the leading whiskey producing nation in the world and the birthplace of literary giants of the era including writers such as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Bram Stoker, to name but a few.
Many of these great writers, on occasion, would take refuge in their local public house, where they could draw inspiration from their daily observations of life while enjoying the comfort of their favourite dram of whiskey.
At this time, one whiskey blend was held high above all others. Known as the ‘champagne of Irish whiskey’ it was a master blend of pot still and malt whiskeys, both distilled in copper pots. It was enjoyed by many of the great Irish writers of the day… of course less for its inspirational qualities than its full-bodied, flavoursome taste and creamy texture! It was said that they enjoyed it so much, that when they cried their tears were of whiskey.
Writers’ Tears Double Oak, is a blend of the two premium whiskey styles aged in two types of wood – American and French Oak. Distillery Notes.
