The Johnnie Walker White Walker showed up last week, even though it has not been officially launched or announced yet it is known it will be released this fall ahead of the final season of Game of Thrones will air in spring 2019.
Not much is known about the whisky itself but all these Johnnie Walkers are often what they call “Limited Edition Design”. In other words, just new labelling and packaging. The label tells it has been “Distilled, blended & bottled North of the Wall”, and “cool” features like “Freeze for an unexpected icy reveal”.
Back to the whisky. It has been bottled at 41.7% and the label claim it is best served cold directly from the freezer. As can be seen, the ABV has been bumped slightly compared to the usual 40% ABV. If this will only be released in the US, like Jane Walker, or will see a worldwide release is to be seen. We will, of course, post more information as soon as it is available.
