Weep for joy with some proper cask-strength, full-flavor Irish blended Whiskey.

Walsh Whiskey
set out with the clear mission of rediscovering 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 their own distillery in Carlow — in the heart of Ireland’s southern farm country — where they make eight versions of The Irishman Whiskies, six Writers' Tears blends, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur.

Harkening back to the golden age of Irish Whiskey, the Writers' Tears series employs pot-still distillation and Irish creativity of centuries past. The times when literary giants such as Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Bram Stoker would enjoy a dram and brood over their work. The annual Cask Strength expression is a blend of the finest Single Pot Still and Single Malt Irish Whiskeys, singled out each year by Bernard Walsh for their exceptional qualities. Matured in American oak, there was a total of 3,000 of these 109-proof bottles produced in 2020 with a fresh label design.

Character Dogson
Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Irishman signature blend was created by Bernard Walsh, in 1999.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
