A delicate combination of perfectly crafted Irish Whiskies and expert, double-wood aging.

Walsh Whiskey set out to rediscover real Irish-style Whiskey as it was made 200 years ago. When Welsh 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 Writers' Tears Double Oak, the Walsh Whiskey Distillery took two Irish Whiskies — one Single Malt and the other Single Pot-Still. Both are 100% barley, triple distilled, and non-chill-filtered. They aged one in American ex-Bourbon casks and the other aged in French ex-Cognac casks using Limousin oak and blended them together. The French casks came from the Legaret Family estate — makers of DEAU Cognac — and bring tannins and fruit notes. The American casks deliver vanilla and oakier flavors. The resulting elixir is bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

geoffrey
geoffrey,
This is my favorite Irish whisky! The blending of both styles and having them aged in both Bourbon and Cognac barrels creates a wonderful finish. I picked up 2 bottles of this at the Dublin airport last year, when it wasn't being exported. I am overjoyed to be able to get it through Flaviar.

Christopher,
For sure a great go-to Irish Whiskey. Smooth and flavorful, I find this to be a good crowd pleasing gateway whiskey to bring people to the Irish side.
 
Tim
Tim,
Mild peat, smooth on front, slight bite at the end. Neat
 
Ross
Ross,
Amazing complexity for Irish whisky. Takes ice well, but is smooth enough to drink straight. Either way is a great experience.
 
Christian
Christian,
I get the appeal...its damn smooth, though I admit I didnt detect a lot the tasting notes listed. Almost like a Jameson without the spice.
 
Michael
Michael,
Tastes a bit young, but there are some great things going on here. Excellent for the price. Would definitely buy again.
