Writers’ Tears Cask Strength 2016 is a triple-distilled blend of aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt Whiskey from casks of the finest selected distillates.

Bottled in September 2016, it is limited to only 2,640 bottles worldwide and each bottle bears its own unique number and the signature of Walsh Whiskey Distillery founder Bernard Walsh.
Introducing the 2016 vintage of Writers’ Tears Cask Strength, Bernard Walsh described this very limited release as follows: “To me it presents elegant and luscious notes of poached pear, sweet barley and creamy oak. It offers the palate hints of white chocolate and red fruit and, to finish the experience, we get delicate mandarin tones with oak powering through single pot still spice. I am proud to commend it to old and new followers of Writers’ Tear alike.”
