Johnnie Walker Game of Thrones White Walker Blended Scotch Whisky, 70cl
About this deal
As a fan of both Johnnie Walker and Game of Thrones, I figured why not give the limited edition whisky a review. I doubt the bottle will be as good as the show, but maybe it’ll have a better finish. After some brief history, we’ll get into more specifics of the bottle and its tasting notes. Johnnie Walker History In October 2018, Diageo teamed with HBO to produce "White Walker by Johnnie Walker" whisky, inspired by the army of the undead in the TV series Game of Thrones as part of the marketing for the series' final season.  Diageo then released a collection of Game of Thrones–inspired single malt whiskies,  followed by two more whiskies by Johnnie Walker in mid-2019.  Accolades [ edit ]
One of the cool things about JW WW is about what’s on the outside of the bottle, not the inside. The bottle features a icy white and blue wrapping with the walking man on the front. However, much like a Coors Light can, the bottle changes when it reaches temperatures below freezing. a b Baird, Scott (August 24, 2017). " Game of Thrones: 15 Things You Didn't Know About the White Walkers". Screen Rant . Retrieved May 3, 2020.The White Walker bottle has an ‘icy’ white and blue design, featuring the Johnnie Walker striding man clad in armour. Finally, during my second glass it hit me. This tasted just like a smore. Not one where the marshmallow gets a nice golden color. This was a marshmallow that was forged in the fire and had the charred outside to prove it. There’s a reason the whisky is chill filtered and uses single malts from the northern most distilleries. It’s all meant to correspond with narratives around the white walker of Game of Thrones.

However, after his death in 1857, Alexander Walker took over and transformed it into a booming business. A law passed in 1860 further softened the laws around scotch, and Alexander Walker took advantage. Whisky sales became 90% of their sales in comparison to the previous 8% or so under his father. The White Walkers portrayed on HBO's Game of Thrones differ slightly in appearance from their literary counterparts, but Aaron Souppouris of The Verge named them among "the most visually iconic creatures on the show".  In the TV series, the primary White Walker has been portrayed by Ross Mullan.   The show calls them "White Walkers" to avoid confusing "the Others" and "others" in speech.
