Rare and complex Irish Whiskey for aficionados.  

Writers’ Tears Irish Whiskey not only has a peculiar name, but also some of the most amazing expressions, including the annual Cask Strength line. It’s straight-forward and unique in many ways. First, it’s a rare blend of aged single pot still and single malt. Single pot still means it’s made by a single distillery from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, distilled in – you guessed it, a pot still. Fun fact: the idea of mixing barley came up in the 18th century when the King of England decided to tax malted barley.

Enough history, and let’s focus on this marvelous bottle. It's the 8th annual release and it's super-premium. It's triple distilled, non-chill filtered, aged in ex-Bourbon barrels, and bottled at 53% ABV. It's a pretty strong lad. It's also pretty exclusive as only over five thousand bottles were made. The founder describes the batch as complex, summery and fresh. If you get your hands on this one, consider yourself lucky.
