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.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. It was St.Patrick who made the shamrock so popular.

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,
Tastes a bit young, but there are some great things going on here. Excellent for the price. Would definitely buy again.
