Writers’ Tears Japanese Cask Finish

Price: €90 (US$110) 

Walsh Whiskey secured two Masters in the Irish Whiskey flight for Writers’ Tears Japanese Cask Finish and Writers’ Tears Copper Pot.

“I like the details, the cutting of the letters, the tear, the Writer’s script on the label, the closure is well made” noted one member of the panel. “They are classic premium designs, without being baroque. The Japanese one in particular, the quality of the symbology behind it, the premium feel of the white colour feels very Japanese and clean.”
The expression was first aged in American oak Bourbon barrels before being finished for nine months in two ‘extremely rare’ Japanese mizunara oak barrels.
