Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice
Johnnie Walker // Scotland
Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice 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 Ice represents House Stark and its sigil, a direwolf, is featured on the bottle. The blend features single malt from Clynelish, one of the most northern distilleries in Scotland.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
"While easy drinking, the 'Song of Ice' blend is fairly timid out of the glass. The nose offers up distant hints of butterscotch, wax, and brown sugar. The spirit feels light across the palate, and although it is evenly balanced, it misses the opportunity to deliver a signature character."
