Day Seven: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown

DEC 7 – Writers Tears Copper Pot    40%   Cost = $45   Score:  B+

Nose:  bright pear, citrus, floral note, honey vanilla – classic Irish nose for me

Taste:  pear with a slight spice, caramel, malt sweetness

Finish:  solid medium finish with touch of wood spice

Overall:  solid NAS dram, would definitely revisit – nice for the price point; have an unopened bottle on the shelf – and glad I do
