Writers’ Tears Double Oak

Price: £44.95 (US$54.21)

Another Master was secured by Walsh Whiskey for its Writers’ Tears Double Oak, which the judges described as having an aroma of “cherry bakewell” and a “rich finish”.

Double Oak has been matured in both American and French oak casks, with the American barrels imparting “bolder flavours” such as vanilla, while the French oak influence offers “silky tannins, a light sweetness and fruity flavours”.

Writers’ Tears Double Oak is the result of a collaboration between the whiskey maker and the Legaret family in Cognac, France.
