A whiskey so good you won’t even be bothered by zombies passing you by.
By now, chances are that you’ve probably heard about a little thing called The Walking Dead.
If you haven’t, no judgment, but you’ve probably been living under a rock and that’s totally not okay.
To help bring you up to speed, The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic comic book series created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore.
It’s essentially about surviving the world in a post-apocalyptic state and has been turned into a pretty epic Netflix series.
For those of you that are familiar with the comic series (yes, all millions of you), we are beyond excited to share the news that a limited-edition bourbon whiskey release celebrating the critically acclaimed comic book series hits shelves in October ahead of New York Comic-Con.
Set in an apocalyptic world where the dead feed off the living, society has crumbled to the verge of extinction. There is no government, no stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. But luckily, there is bourbon.
The Walking Dead Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a limited-edition offering under Spirits of the Apocalypse.
Available in stores nationwide beginning this October, the bourbon is good enough for the dead.
Details about the bourbon
The bourbon itself is well-balanced with notes of rye and the essence of vanilla. It also offers a great caramel aroma and aromas of orchard fruit.
What’s this mean?
It’s smooth, spicy, and finishes with a light nuttiness.
This way, whether you wrapped up with fighting off zombies or co-workers after a longer week which can sometimes feel like zombies, you have a new limited-edition bourbon to help you unwind after a day’s work.
