Sourced from an unnamed distillery this, is an NAS Irish single malt aged in ex-oloroso sherry barrels (hence, Red Head). Writers' Tears is the label of the newest Irish distillery (opened June 2016), the Walsh Whiskey Distillery, in Royal Oak in County Carlow. Production commenced upon opening, however, as per Irish law, the distillate will need some time in the rack house before it can be bottled as whiskey. Bottled at 46% ABV, this malt is non-chill filtered.
