After the overwhelming interest in our world first Australian exclusive Redbreast Single Cask we knew it wouldn't be too long before we headed back to the Emerald Isle.

Walsh Whiskey was established by the husband and wife team of Bernard and Rosemary Walsh back in 1999. It's hard to fathom now but at the time Irish whiskey was just beginning to turn around a decline that stretched back to the 1800s when it was the most popular spirit in the world.

Back then Irish whiskey commanded a significant premium to Scotch and by some estimates was produced at five times the volume. What changed? Well it's a long story that includes the invention of the Coffey continuous still, the Irish War of Independence and prohibition in the United States.

Writer's Tears, produced by the Walsh family harks back to those glory days of Irish whiskey. And the names honours literary giants, such as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats and James Joyce who found fame (and in some cases notoriety) around the same time.

This is the 12th limited edition cask strength release from Writer's Tears and the Australian allocation is exclusive to Barrel & Batch members.

A marriage of single pot and single malt spirit and non-chill filtered this is a full bodied and flavoursome dram. The nose shows notes of ginger and pepper spice alongside rich butterscotch. On the palate hints of toasted oak, biscuit and dark chocolate come through mingled with sweet vanilla extending into a an exceptional finish, bursting with character and flavour.
