If you live and breathe, then you’re probably gearing up for the final season of HBO’s smash hit, “Game of Thrones”. In the meantime, Johnnie Walker and HBO have whipped up the perfect tribute. Named for the show’s undead army of terrifying, blue-eyed warriors from the Frozen North, White Walker by Johnnie Walker represents an exquisite blend of the good stuff, and even comes in an icy bottle shrouded with blue veins.
To craft this limited edition blend, whisky specialist George Harper and his team of experts culled Single Malts from Cardhu and Clynelish, which hail from one of Scotland’s northernmost distilleries. In the words of Harper: “Whiskies from Clynelish have endured long, Scottish winters, not dissimilar to the long periods endured by the Night’s Watch who have ventured north of the wall – so it was the perfect place to start when creating this unique whisky.”
According to Johnnie Walker, you should store the bottle in your freezer, allowing the spirit to develop in character as it warms to room temperature in your glass. From every dram, expect creamy notes of burnt sugar, vanilla, and red berries, with a touch of orchard fruit. Indeed, this is an ideal sipper for when you binge-watch previous seasons of “Game of Thrones”, if only to refresh your memory. It will be available in Australia for $65 AUD from late November until supplies last.
