Writers’ Tears’ Recent Irish Whiskey Release Included in ‘101 Whiskeys to Try Before you Die’ List

Writers’ Tears

Writers’ Tears Copper Pot Irish Whiskey

We’ve got some excellent news for you. Walsh Whiskey recently released Writers’ Tears’ first Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey, Copper Pot. It is expected to be an exceptional whiskey that has been triple distilled, non-peated and matured in flame-charred American Oak bourbon casks.

Despite its recent release, the whiskey is already heavily awarded and was included in Ian Buxton’s publication “101 Whiskeys to try before you die,” a significant award for Walsh Whiskey, a brand that intends to lead the revival of Irish whiskey.

“Walsh Whiskey is leading the Irish whiskey renaissance. Its exclusively premium and super-premium, triple-distilled, craft Irish whiskeys – Writers’ Tears and The Irishman – are both critically acclaimed and internationally adored,” says the website regarding the brand.

Writers’ Tears Copper Pot Irish Whiskey Tasting Notes

  • Nose

    Flashes of apple with hints of vanilla.

  • Taste

    Gently spiced ginger & orchard fruits.

  • Finish

    Long & elegant with dark chocolate.

As Walsh Whiskey continues to expand its portfolio, it has remained steadfast in releasing great whiskeys. It will be interesting to see if Copper Pot can stand up to its predecessors in flavor and quality. However, it will not hit U.S. markets until 2022, so we’ll have to wait and see.
