Writers' Tears Cask Strength Irish Whiskey 2021


The 11th release of the super-premium Writers’ Tears Cask Strength has been limited to just 6,000 numbered bottles, of which one quarter headed straight to the USA. Considering the immense demand, getting hold of one would normally prove extremely challenging. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back, as it’s launching exclusively though Harvey Nichols in the UK.

Writers’ Tears Cask Strength Irish Whiskey 2021 is a rare vatting of aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt whiskeys. Both components were triple distilled and matured in Bourbon barrels before being married together and bottled at 54.2%. Expect a summery intermingling of ripe apples, crunchy pears, juicy apricots and wild berries, as well as coconut cream, chocolate-covered biscuits, butterscotch, vanilla and warming gingerbread. Don’t be fooled by that fiery looking ABV, this whiskey is as smooth as the embossed teardrop on that stunning bottle.

Inspired by the golden era of Irish whiskey, Rosemary and Bernard Walsh established Walsh Whiskey in 1999. In their quest for the most “perfect drop of whiskey imaginable”, they have created contemporary takes on traditional recipes from the 19th Century under two brands: The Irishman and Writers’ Tears. Constantly pushing boundaries along the way, they’ve been responsible for the first blends of premium Pot Still and Malt whiskeys, the first Irish cask-strength whiskey of the modern era and the first Organic Single Pot Still whiskey, not to mention building the largest manually operated distillery in Ireland.

The Writers’ Tears series pays homage to the creative thinkers and artists that have defined Irish culture, such as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and Bram Stoker. Will this bottle inspire you to put pen to paper?
