Johnnie Walker A Song Of Fire 70cl 40.8%
A Song of Fire is one of a pair of blended Scotch whiskies from Johnnie Walker, alongside its sibling expression A Song of Ice. Both were inspired by the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV show based off of George R.R. Martin’s book series A Song of Ice and Fire. This particular expression takes further inspiration from the House Targaryen, which had something of an affinity for dragons, like the one you can see on the label. As such, this expression offers up a subtly smoky flavour profile, imparted by the peaty Caol Ila malts at its core.
Nose: Orange peels and dried fruit, contrasted by savoury, woody smoke wafts.
Palate: Somewhat coastal, with salinity growing underneath runny toffee and biscuit dough notes. Toasty spices also pop up – think nutmeg and five-spice.
Finish: A final hint of soft smoke, plus some Honey-Nut Cheerios sweetness.
