White Walker by Johnnie Walker
Johnnie Walker // Scotland
White Walker by Johnnie Walker was created by whisky specialist George Harper along with a small team of expert blenders at Johnnie Walker. Included in the blend are single malts from Cardhu and Clynelish, the latter being one of the most northern distilleries in Scotland. White Walker is designed to be served directly from the freezer and the bottle features a "temperature-sensitive ink technology." When the bottle is frozen, it will display the graphic icy reveal. This bottling is a collaboration between HBO's Game of Thrones and Diageo's Johnnie Walker due to hit shelves fall 2018.
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.
"There's a tinned quality along with a gentle smoke and grain forward nose. The spice factor is low, but present. The whisky is thin and more bitter than sweet with the grain whiskies taking over the malts in this blend. Johnnie Walker encourages you to freeze for best enjoyment -- best to heed this advice as the flaws are less noticeable at this temperature. You're buying this one for the bottle alone (as this fan did)."
