To help celebrate the launch of the new core range Writers’ Tears Double Oak expression from Walsh Whiskey, we’ve teamed up with our friends at the County Carlow – Ireland based brand, to giveaway a bottle of their latest dramspanking Irish dramming ditty.
Inspired by the blends popular in 18th century Ireland, Writers’ Tears Double Oak is a blend of single pot still and single malt Irish whiskeys, that have been matured in American and French oak casks.
The use of French oak casks in the maturation of Irish whiskey was widespread through the 17th and 18th centuries. This changed in the 19th century, with the arrival of more affordable and larger quantities of American oak casks, which was driven by the surge in exports of Irish whiskey.
This gave rise to a unique ménage of both French and American Oak barrels being used for maturing Irish whiskies and the resultant blends gave a new twist in the flavour profile of Irish pot and malt whiskeys.
This latest release from the Carlow - Ireland based company, was made possible by a close collaboration between the Walsh family and the Legaret family in Cognac, France.
