Whisky Advocate’s #8 whisky of the summer issue

May 17th, 2012

Writers Tears Cask Strength Pot Still, 53%, €135 

Well, the name’s spot on because at that price it definitely brought tears to this writer’s eyes. What a shame, because the liquid is eye-watering, too, a stunning big bruiser of a whiskey that coats the mouth as berry and green fruits battle it out with oak, spice, and grain oils — the whiskey equivalent to one of singer Sinead O’Connor’s rants — powerful, impressive, a little bitter and twisted, utterly unforgettable, and unmistakably Irish. — Dominic Roskrow

    Pitty about the price – means I don’t get to taste it. The standard version is very good, though.
