This latest release from the County Carlow based distillery, also sees the unveiling of a new packaging design for the Writers Tears Cask Strength series, which first launched in 2011.

The new design links the artistic essence of Writers Tears to the creativity of whiskey distilling through a chalkboard illustration by Irish illustrator, Linda Byrne. It depicts the field-to-bottle creation of whiskey and the rural influence on age-old whiskey traditions. Each bottle has also been signed by Distillery Founder Bernard Walsh.

Commenting on the launch, Bernard Walsh said: “This whiskey displays a depth in flavour bursting with complexity and flavour. Elegant notes of dark chocolate and rich blackberries precede subtle summer fruits and sweet barley, while hints of butterscotch and rich toasted wood giving way to a bold and intense finish. We are proud that the new design very much ties the creativity of Writers’ Tears with the creativity of whiskey innovation. I hope the lucky few who acquire this release enjoy every moment.”

Earlier this month, Walsh Whiskey announced the launch of a new limited-edition, vintage bottling from its ‘The Irishman’ whiskey brand.

Writers Tears Cask Strength 2017, will be available later this month in selected international markets, including Italy, France, Holland, Switzerland and both the Irish domestic and Travel Retail markets, for a RRP of €125.00.
