Walsh Whiskey, The Irishman, 17-Year-Old, Single Malt Whiskey, Ireland (56%)
About this SPIRIT
Established by husband and wife, Bernard and Rosemary Walsh in 1999, Walsh Whiskey is one of the leading producers of the Irish whiskey renaissance. Its exclusively premium and super-premium, triple-distilled, craft Irish whiskeys are made using the finest single pot still and single malt whiskeys. Most notably of all, Walsh Whiskey is the only house that blends these two premium whiskey styles, in different ways, offering truly unique taste experiences. Both Writers’ Tears and The Irishman are critically acclaimed and internationally adored in over 50 countries. The portfolio includes 6 core expressions in a range of 14 premium and super-premium Irish whiskeys.
Both brands offer unique taste profiles, through the recreation of traditional Irish whiskey recipes from the 19th Century – Ireland’s golden era of whiskey distilling. While honouring the past, Bernard and Rosemary also introduce truly innovative new expressions for contemporary palates in a modern era. The Writers’ Tears suite is more pot-still led, with single malt to the fore in The Irishman range.

Immediately busting out of the glass, this is incredibly expressive. Very precise, quite appealing toffee apple with a touch of raisin. There is a salty element to this whisky, more likely brought on from the Sherry cask.
There is a sweetness to the palate, and almost immediately, there is a rich, warming and practically creamy element to the palate, quickly followed by an elegant bruised red apple and roast pear character.
This all warps into a salted toffee and candied apple concoction that coats the palate. This is also a nice finish, with a moreish saline punch and sweet roasted fruit notes. Very appealing and very drinkable.
