Another cask strength victory for Writers’ Tears and Bernard Walsh.

Walsh Whiskey set out to rediscover real Irish-style Whiskey as it was made 200 years ago. When Walsh Whiskey first started in 1999, they contracted their distilling to Bushmills. But their success has allowed them to build out their own distillery in Carlow — in the heart of Ireland’s southern farm country — where they make eight versions of The Irishman Whiskies, six Writer’s Tears blends, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur.

For the last nine years, proprietor Bernard Walsh has hand-selected casks to assemble his Cask Strength offering. It’s a strictly limited edition and each year it sells out quickly. Last year (2018) there were 5280 bottles. This year, Writers Tears Cask Strength 2019 Release is limited to only 3780 individually-numbered bottles.

This year’s release is a vatting of triple-distilled Irish Pot Still and Single Malt Whiskies. And it is bottled at 53% ABV to appeal to the most discriminating palate and dominate ice or a splash of water.

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first spirits ever made.

Ratings & Reviews
Not a fan. Taste like scotch
A little bit of woody flavor like I’d expect from a scotch, with a heat that matches the proof. Under all that is a really good, complex flavor that’s there if you look for it.
