Bottler: Writer's Tears Whiskey Company
Score: 92 points
This unique Irish whiskey is made from a combination of pot still whiskey from Midleton and single malt whiskey from Bushmills, and the nose has notes of clove, mild cinnamon, cereal grains and a good maltiness, and hints of burnt straw and oak.
The taste is oily, thick, and full-bodied with good spicy notes of cinnamon and black pepper, dark chocolate and caramel underneath with toasted oak and a subtle maltiness. The finish is long, smooth, and spicy with a good balance. (September, 2013)
