Rich and aromatic.
Tasting Notes: Writers Tears Double Oak marries both single malt and single pot still whiskeys after a triple distillation, and is aged in both American oak from Kentucky and French oak Cognac casks from the French Allary Cooperage - the delicious result of a collaboration between the Walsh family and the Legaret family in Cognac, France.
Intense aromas. Notes of raw honey and lemon-accented black tea, but the Cognac cask has clearly added more depth and intensity to the aroma in the form of golden raisins, a bit of old leather, vanilla bean, and sawn lumber. The palate is honeyed and mouth-coating with notes of lemon peel, dark berry jam, sweet biscuits, cocoa powder, and baking spice. The bit of ginger and liquorice in the original is complemented nicely by the darker, winey notes of the Cognac cask which, both a little sour and tannic, also helps to temper the sweetness. The finish is long with tobacco and honey-dipped orchard fruits.
