Walsh Whiskey Marsala Cask Finish // 750 ml
Walsh Whiskey has released a very limited edition of it’s celebrated Writers’ Tears – Copper Pot whiskey. This rare, super-premium blend of Single Pot Still and Single Malt whiskeys was finished in 5 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 company released limited Marsala finish editions of two of its’ whiskeys in The Irishman range – Founder’s Reserve (from 9 hogshead casks) and 12 Year Single Malt (from a single hogshead cask).
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.”
A hogshead cask is approximately 20% larger than the standard whiskey cask size. With evaporation accounting for the ‘Angel’s Share’, just 2,430 bottles of Writers’ Tears Marsala Cask Finish were yielded after 12 months finishing in the hogshead casks.
Four of the five casks have already been assigned with Australia (cask no: 3145), Dublin Airport (cask no: 3147), the Celtic Whiskey Shop in central Dublin (cask no: 3149) and cask no: 3148 assigned for general release in Ireland.
