Writers Tears is a blend of Pot Still Whiskey and Malt Whiskey produced by Walsh Whiskey in Carlow. Their cask strength is bottled at 53% to cater for demand from Whiskey aficionados and connoisseurs who prefer to get the full undiluted taste of whiskey straight from the cask rather then the normal bottling which is reduced to 40% by diluting it prior to bottling with pure water. Walsh Whiskey plan to build a new distillery and Irish Whiskey Visitor Centre near Carlow in 2016.

Writers Tears Cask Strength Irish Whiskey
Most Irish Whiskeys are between 55% and 60% when taken from the cask after their maturation period. They are then diluted before bottling with pure water down to the industry norm of 40%. Cask strength whiskeys are produced in limited quantities by may distilleries as a service to experienced whiskey aficionados who would like to experience the full wood taste from their whiskey. The 2014 expression was hand picked by Walsh Whiskey Director Bernard Walsh and is limited to just 1980 bottles. It is bottled at a cask strength of 53% so be careful!
Writers Tears Cask Strength Whiskey Tasting Notes
- Nose: A light fruity air with some bourbon vanilla deepening into spicier scents.
- Taste: Strong, deep rich and spicey. Intense from the cask strength .
- Finish: Long finish influenced by the pot still and malt.
Writers Tears Cask Strength at 53% is not a whiskey for the beginner as it is bottled at an eye watering 53% which can over power the taste buds of an inexperienced whiskey drinker. Like Tullamore DEW, it is a blend of pot still and malt whiskey but without the taming effect of the grain in Tullamore. Try some after a sip of Tullamore Dew to get a feel for the pot still and malt blend.
