No, not mine. You can get that distasteful (and slightly disgusting) image out of your heads right now.
I have a bottle of Writers Tears here. It was £28 but only cost me £3 because I had £25 in Marks and Spencer vouchers. How this came to be is a not particularly interesting story.
Anyway, Marks and Spencer really only sell one thing that interests me and I can’t usually afford to buy it in there. So, armed with 25 free drinking vouchers, I entered the hallowed and expensive hall of the Poshest Shop in Town.
They have Glenfarclas in there! Seriously expensive though. I thought I’d try something different since I wasn’t actually spending much.
The Writers Tears caught my eye as one I hadn’t seen before. It’s an Irish whisky and those tend to be mostly a bit too bourbon-like for my taste. What the hell, I was only gambling £3, so I bought it.
It’s very very good indeed. There is that Irish whiskey flavour, not at all like Scottish whisky, but without the bourbon harshness of the cheaper ones. At the price I’d say it’s a very good buy and if you can find it for less than the £28 M&S want for it, definitely give it a try. Although that’s a pretty good price for a damn fine whisky anyway.
One for the ‘try this one again’ list.
