As promised, HBO and Johnnie Walker have joined forces to create a Game of Throne inspired blended scotch dubbed White Walker by Johnnie Walker.. The theme has been selected as per the last season of the show, depicting the strong hold of the Night King and his army.

Bottled at 41.7 percent ABV, the gimmicky scotch has “notes of caramelized sugar and vanilla, fresh red berries with a touch of orchard fruit,” according to the company.
The White Walker whisky, a blend from two single malt scotches from Cardhu and Clynelish distilleries in northern Scotland, is meant to be served freezing cold.
