A Flying Start for the 2018 Vintage of Writers’ Tears Cask Strength Whiskey

8th Release of the super-premium Writers’ Tears Cask Strength whiskey is limited to 5,175 bottles worldwide.

Royal Oak, Ireland – 26th April 2018: The 2018 vintage of Writers’ Tears Cask Strength whiskey has been launched at an exclusive event hosted by the Aviators’ Whiskey Society on the periphery of Dublin’s International Airport in Ireland.
The 2018 vintage is the 8th annual release of this super-premium whiskey from Walsh Whiskey. It is a rare vatting of aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt Whiskey, treble distilled, natural non-chill filtered, carefully aged in Bourbon barrels and bottled at 53% ABV. The release is limited to just 5,175 individually numbered bottles, signed by Walsh Whiskey Founder and Chief Executive – Bernard Walsh, for sale across selected markets worldwide including Ireland, the UK, Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, France, Germany, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Ukraine and selected travel retail outlets.

Describing this year’s cask strength release of Writers’ Tears, Bernard Walsh, said: “This whiskey displays a complex nose of toasted cereal, almond oils, creamy chocolate and sweet floral notes. On the palate it reveals wild honey, summer fruits and fresh ginger all underpinned by a spicy single pot still base. It has a delicate, warmth and lingering finish. I hope the lucky few who acquire this year’s release enjoy every moment.”

The packaging of the 2018 vintage has a variation on the design introduced last year, featuring an illustration by Irish artist Linda Byrne. Set against a redbrick backdrop, the illustration depicts the whiskey distilling process from field-to-bottle, amid the main features of Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s Royal Oak estate including the distillery, the River Barrow and Holloden House which was built in 1755.
