Game of Thrones and Diageo teamed up to release 9 different whiskies to represent one of the feuding families in the HBO series.
So far only one has been released: Johnnie Walker White Walker.
Thank you to Top Shelf Liquor in San Marcos for donating the bottle for us to review!
They should have a new online store going live pretty soon:

This is a special blend put together for this release using 2 of Diageo's northern most distilleries: Cardhu and Clynellish for the bulk of the blend. This is chill filtered and bottled at 41.7% abv. The distiller aimed for this one to taste best when chilled in the freezer.
The bottle features a thermochromic ink that reveals a special message when it's ice cold. "Winter is here" It also reveals a lot more of the blue lines to show a shattered ice effect. The iconic Walking Man is donning the White Walker armor which I think looks pretty bad ass.
The other GoT whiskys to be released starting in November 2018 are:
House Tully - Singleton of Glendullan Select
House Stark - Dalwhinnie Winter's Frost
House Targaryen - Cardhu Gold Reserve
House Lannister - Lagavulin 9 year old <---OMG yes!
House Greyjoy - Talisker Select Reserve
House Baratheon - Royal Lochnagar 12 year old
House Tyrell - Clynellish Reserve
Night's Watch - Oban Bay reserve
For this video review of White Walker I was joined by the beautiful Wonder Woman.
We reviewed this four ways. Neat at room temperature, neat out of the freezer, diluted with a few drops of water and then finally over ice in a rocks glass.

As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
