Writers Tears Copper Pot, 40%

Price: $40 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Blends of single pot still and single malt Irish whiskey without grain deserve their own category, but there's no use crying about it. Roasted spices, Quaker Oats, light honey, and fresh apricot; a little reserved and demure. Golden honey sweetness, light citrus, green apple, peach pit, dried apricot, cereal notes, creamy vanilla, and a firm strand of pot still spiciness. Dry spice heat, citrus peel, and a dark vanilla aftertaste.
