  • Combine cake mix, pudding mixes, and 1/2 cup walnuts in a large bowl.

  • Whisk 1/2 cup Irish whiskey, milk, and oil together in a separate bowl. Whisk in eggs. Pour over cake mixture and stir until blended. Divide batter among the prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in brown sugar. Add remaining walnuts, 1 tablespoon whiskey, and water. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in remaining whiskey.

  • Cool cakes for 5 minutes before inverting a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Use a toothpick to poke small holes across the tops. Pour whiskey topping over cakes and leave to soak in as they cool.
