Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire
Johnnie Walker // Scotland
Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire is a blended scotch whisky expected to be released in the US in August 2019 and globally in October 2019. A Song of Fire & Ice is the name of the fantasy novel series written by George R.R. Martin which was adapted by HBO into the television series Game of Thrones. A Song of Fire represents House Targaryen and its sigil, a dragon, is featured on the bottle. The blend features peated single malt from Caol Ila.
Peated BlendA mix of grains and malted barley. From more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"This blend plays up to its name quite well with an enjoyable mix of peat smoke and spice from start to finish. The aromas are lead by a waft of (almost Mediterranean) baking spices and backed up by toasted nut and chili flake notes. The palate is immediately coating and brings a layered mix of caramelized sugar, dried apricot and lean peat smoke. The chili flake note returns for a nice accent at the end."
