Johnnie Walker Readies Game of Thrones Whisky

Recommended Posts

HBO and Diaego have announced a partnership to bring Johnnie Walker to Westeros with a collection of nine whiskys. One of the most striking, visually, is the limited-edition White Walker blend best served out of the freezer… and with a special thermochromic ink on the bottle that changes according to temperature. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau had a chance to enjoy it, though normally speaking Jaime Lannister would rather not face a White Walker.

Well I'm going to be stocking up on House Lannister, even though it's not my favorite house. In my opinion they got the best distillery.

Diageo... Marketing... :blushing:  That's like the planned "spin-offs to the HBO hit show".

Better buy from independent distilleries, e.g. honour the Iron Islands with Highland Park's Viking series...

It's a pretty gimmicky marketing ploy.

Diageo are anathema to many whisky enthusiasts because they mostly tend to adhere strictly to chill filtration, which can seem to diminish the body and mouthfeel of the whisky. I'm not sure taste is affected but I do often feel chill filtered whiskies lack body and/or mouthfeel; it's like you lose something in that middle point after the first taste and before the aftertaste.

That said, I may try them (apart from the JW blend) depending on the price. I do love a Lagavulin 16, a Clynelish 14, or a Talisker 10 but these GoT releases are likely to consist predominantly of much younger whisky.
