For the month of October this limited release will only be available in Ireland through Ally at the Celtic Whiskey Shop.

Writers Tears Cask Strength is at 53% this year and is Ireland’s most exclusive Whiskey.

Each year Bernard Walsh selects a handful of exceptional casks to make this the benchmark for Super Premium Cask Strength Irish Whiskey. It is available in strictly limited quantities with only 2500 bottles produced in 2013. 

Bernard Walsh, founder of Writers Tears, said “We are delighted once again to be able to offer such an amazing whiskey. The combination of Single Pot Still and Single Malt at Cask Strength, give this treasure an excellent flavour.” 

Put plainly, ‘Cask Strength’ means that the whiskey is bottled at the natural strength, straight out of the barrel and Writers Tears choose only the finest American Oak Bourbon Casks to put its much loved triple distilled whiskey into. This years Cask Strength has come in at 53%, and has come out with a wonderful combination of soft bourbon notes with a light malty subplot. Following through with a creamy oak and spice that gives it magnificent superb complexity which balances its expressive strength. 

There are only 2500 bottles available worldwide in this limited edition and each bottle comes individually numbered as a mark of high quality and is non-chill filtered.
