Writer's Tears is an Irish blended whiskey (single malt + pot still) produced at Midleton distillery. Check my (old) review of Writer's Tears Cask Strength for instance. On top of their regular releases they like to experiment with uncommon cask types, like cognac, mizunara, seaweed IPA, ice wine...The version we're having today is a single cask release. It was aged in a Marsala cask from the well-known producer Florio. The bottling strength is 45% ABV, which is 5% stronger than the Writers’ Tears is usually bottled.A whole series of individual sister casks were released, so depending on where you bought it, you can find different cask numbers.
