Writer's Tears Red Head Oloroso Sherry Butts 46% 700ml information

Writer's Tears Red Head Oloroso Sherry Butts is a unique and exclusive blend of Pure Pot Still and Irish Single Malt whiskey. This limited edition expression from Walsh Whiskey is matured entirely in ex-Oloroso Sherry casks, giving it a rich ruby hue and a wonderfully complex flavor profile. The nose is filled with notes of orange peel, dried fruits, sultanas, and sherry plums, while the palate offers classic characteristics of Oloroso sherry, including spicy raisins, fruitcake, and creamy oak. A flourish of orange awaits on the finish, which is delightfully long and complex.

Triple distilled and bottled at 46% ABV, this whiskey is free from chill filtration and has a rich and spicy character, with candied fruits, chocolate, and Christmas cake on the palate. Named after its amber hue, it's non-chill filtered, with no color added.

Inspired by the symbiotic relationship between writing and whiskey in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the name "Writer's Tears" pays homage to the literary greats of the time who were known for their love of Irish whiskey. This whiskey is a nod to the "Champagne of whiskeys," which was made from Single Malt and Pot Still distillates.

The influence of the rare Oloroso sherry casks used in aging this whiskey gives it a rich and unique signature, making it a must-try for whiskey connoisseurs and collectors. This whiskey is truly a "Sherry Bomb," and fans of Sherry Casks will not be disappointed.

We have used Spirit Radar since the very beginning. Both in our business and for private use. It is a fantastic tool to keep you updated in the market. It can be very time consuming to find an exact bottle somewhere in the world, but with Spirit Radar, you can get that information within seconds. We have also used it when we need to keep track of our bottles and see what our customers wants. Besides that, its an interesting platform, when you want to explore the rum world, or search for bottles that could be really hard to find in the normal stores. It is very easy and intuitive to use.
