Johnnie Walker, a brand of Diageo North America, and HBO Licensing & Retail introduced two new Scotch whiskies to honor the legacy of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice features single malts from Clynelish, one of Scotland's most northern distilleries, and exudes a crisp, clean taste, the company says. The new blend features a 40.2 percent alcohol-by-volume content and the bottle design evokes an icy setting with frosted blue and gray colors inspired by the North, known for its cold winters and frozen landscapes, it adds. Johnnie Walker A Song of Fire is rich and spicy, boasting flavors of subtle smoke from the peated malts of the Caol Ila distillery and features a 40.8 percent alcohol-by-volume content, according to the company. Inspired by the dragons of House Targaryen, feared for their fire breathing, the bottle design evokes a fiery setting with deep-red colors, it adds. The limited-edition whiskies are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $36 for a 750-ml bottle, while supplies last.
