Walsh Whiskey, has announced the launch of a new limited-edition Marsala finished expression, from its Writers’ Tears Irish whiskey brand.

Writers’ Tears Copper Pot - Marsala Cask Finish (45% ABV) is a blend of single pot still and single malt whiskeys, which were finished in Marsala wine ‘hogshead’ casks from the Florio winery in Sicily.

This is the second time that Walsh Whiskey has finished whiskeys in Marsala casks from Florio. In 2017 the Carlow - Ireland based company released limited Marsala finish editions of its ‘The Irishman’ Founder’s Reserve and 12 Year Single Malt bottlings.

Commenting on the news, Bernard Walsh, Founder and Managing Director of Walsh Whiskey, said: “The sweet marsala effect was very well received when we treated some of The Irishman range to it two years ago so we wanted to afford Writers’ Tears - Copper Pot enthusiasts the same opportunity. We have balanced out the natural sweetness with a 5% stronger alcohol content of 45% ABV. I hope people will enjoy it as much as I do.”

Writers’ Tears Copper Pot - Marsala Cask Finish, will be available later this month in limited markets, including Ireland and Australia, for a RRP of €75.00.
