Whisky Reviews for Writer's Tears Pot Still

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.67 points

  1. wheatfield scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Medium gold pour. Nose is light cereal grains, some light cream. Mouth is more spicy than expected up front, then soft grains, some grass. Feel is light and thin. Nice flavors going on but thin and a bit watered down.

  4. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Punches way above its 40% ABV. 
    • Nose
      Lemon, pear, apricot, mild honey, berries. 
    • Taste
      Spun sugar, spice, lemon drops, pear. Spices build.
    • Finish
      Billowing spices and spun sugar with a note of lemon candy. 

  5. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It is not my blood group, but it is well patentable within Ireland.
    • Nose
      Typically an Irish perfume, as I know it, but fortunately, it's just a lighter and more tolerable form. Chocolate, mint, cinnamon, cloves, citrus, apples and pineapple. (83 b)
    • Taste
      Tongue soft, slightly sweet, sweet chocolate, with dried bananas and pungent spiciness. It is a bit sparse but quite pleasant. (83 b)

  7. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Warm and pastry with apples and almonds. Very light. In the mouth, soft and fluid, but pulling on the creamy, it lacks a little volume of aromas but it is very pleasant, even in the final, warm and very Irish in style. A nice surprise for a whiskey which I was expecting absolutely nothing. An excellent quality / price ratio.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A great nose (for the price), but that's it when it comes to upsides of this one. Too young and unbalanced.
    • Nose
      This one reminds me of the Small Batch by Teeling a lot, a similar style of light, fruity summer dram. There are notes of lemon, pear, grape, apricot, pineapple and some sugar. Sweet and nice.
    • Taste
      On the tongue it's slightly sweet at first, but the sweetness is taken over by the bitterness of wood/alcohol. Quite harsh, young and alcoholic. Not good.
    • Finish
      Short, bitterish, woody and alcoholic.

  9. michevinyl scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Simple but delicate and good
    • Nose
      Fresh scent of apple, eucalyptus, honey, cinnamon and oat cakes
    • Taste
      Delicate flavor of vanilla, apple pie, burned sugar, light baking spices
    • Finish
      Light spice pops up, cinnamon, orange peel gives a bit of stubbornness to sweetheart
