Nose shows flashes of apple with hints of vanilla and honey over a distinctively pot still base. Flavors are gently spiced with a burst of ginger and butterscotch and background notes of toasted oak. A long and elegant finish with subtle notes of milk chocolate and almonds.

A step up from Jameson
I like Jameson Irish whiskey. It's a bargain for the money. When I was looking for a present for a friend who likes Jameson, Meridith recommended Writer's Tears. What a great name for "Irish" whiskey, remembering the great Irish writers like James Joyce, and the poet, William Butler Yeats. This is a fine drink that tastes a bit like a single malt scotch, or just a very rich Jameson. If you're a bourbon lover, you will enjoy this drink as an alternative to your usual brown libation. I don't mix my alcohol, except for the ice cubes I use, so I can't speak how this would be in a mixed drink. But I can say this is a fine libation.
Tears of Joy
Soft and sweet with thick honey and fruit notes. It's not the most complex whiskey, but it's delicious and very drinkable. I bring this and a heavily peated scotch to dinner parties so that guests can choose what they want to experience.
