Whiskey of the Month 

Walsh Distillery's Writers Tears Copper Pot

As part of the Kilkenny Whiskey Guild, our whiskey of November 2017 is Walsh Distillery's Writers Tears Copper Pot. A blend of pure pot still whiskey and malt whiskey. A deliciously soft, sweet, easy drinking dram. Awarded Best Irish Whiskey (under €50) 2013.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Flashes of apple with hints of vanilla and honey over a distinctively Irish pot still base.

Palate: Gently spiced with a burst of ginger and butterscotch with background notes of toasted oak. Long, elegant finish with subtle notes of milk chocolate and almonds.

Serving Suggestion - Best on its own or with a little water.
