    Huh???

    A. It's not fake.
    B. It's a special blend that's extremely smooth and not as smokey as Black.
    C. Real thought went into the packaging as it changes when cold - meant to be stored in the freezer.
    D. it's more than just White Walker, they have tie-ins to the other GoT houses with specific distilleries aligned with specific Westeros houses for geographic and cultural reasons:

    You’re talking about a legendary and iconic scotch, Johnnie Walker Black, with maybe the best tie-in synergy ever...... The Striding Man -> The White Walker.....

    Got completely HAMMER FUC*ED on Angels Envy a week ago. The 2 Nicaraguan cigars I had that night put me into next level hangover territory the next morning. Dear God.

    Hammer Fucked may be one of my new favorite terms. Thank you for that piece of gold. My condolences on your hangover though, sounds horrific.

    Legally, bourbon has to be made in the USA. Any state qualifies. Other requirements involve the grain composition, aging in new oak barrels, proof, etc. But Kentucky has nothing to do with it, except as marketing. Tennessee whiskey meets all the legal requirements of bourbon, though both Kentucky bourbon manufacturers and Tennessee whiskey manufacturers pretend they are distinct. Unlike bourbon and Kentucky, Tennessee whiskey does have to be made in Tennessee. That's a legal requirement.

    Kentucky has a county named Bourbon. New Orleans has a Bourbon Street. Both of those, and the whiskey, are named after the French dynasty, which has nothing to do with the whiskey

    This is the second Venn diagram I need today.

    just FEELS less authentic regardless of the legality. Hopefully, it doesnt taste that way.

    Past scotch posts have set a precedent that scotch posts are kosher on the bourbon thread.

    Scotch has been around long before bourbon so the purity is with it and bourbon is the separatist offshoot, no?

    All scotch and bourbon is automatically kosher. Though some argue it’s not if aged in a sherry cask.
