Irish golden tears.

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 Writers' Tears blends, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur.

Writers' Tears Copper Pot Whiskey is a blend of single pot still and malt Whiskey. It is distilled in the same old tradition that has existed in Ireland for hundreds of years (triple distilled, 100% pure pot still Whiskey, no grain, matured in oak Bourbon barrels, non-chill filtered). Light, sweet and wonderful, it's a longtime favorite with our Members.

*Writers' Tears has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

Appearance / Color
Classic malt, rich yellow gold.
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma reminds us of honey and marmalade streaking the fruity barley.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
A full rich flavor, very smooth initially, but developing a little tingle or slight pepperiness on the palate. It's very aromatic and floral malt with a hint of orchard fruits and an initial flourish of spicy, malty sweetness that quickly leaves the stage to drier, firmer characters.
 
Finish
The finish is long with notes of dark chocolate.

Irish Whiskey has many 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.
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!
It is said that when Irish writers suffered from ‘Writer's Block’ and that when they cried they cried tears of Whiskey. Most, if not all of them, sought comfort and inspiration from “The Water of Life” (Whiskey). The relaxing characteristics of Whiskey helped many of them overcome writer’s block and produce inspired works of poetry, prose and plays. Writer’s Tears, is a salute to these great Irish writers.
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.
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.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
