Writers’ Tears Double Oak, is a blend of the two premium whiskey styles (pot still & single malt) aged in two types of wood – American and French Oak. It’s triple-distilled, non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV. This expression is made possible by a close collaboration between the Walsh family in County Carlow and the Legaret family in Cognac, France.
The American oak contributes bolder flavours with more sweet and vanilla overtones due to the presence of more lactones in the wood. The French oak, on the other hand, generates silky tannins which yield a light sweetness combined with fruity flavours that persist in the mouth.
