HOUSE TARGARYEN

CARDHU GOLD RESERVE

Fuelled by the same fiery spirit of the fierce female leadership of Daenerys Targaryen, this single malt celebrates legendary women and their unwavering perseverance. The Cardhu distillery was pioneered by Helen Cumming and her daughter-in-law Elizabeth during the 1800s, a time when the whisky industry was almost entirely male-dominated.

  • Region: Speyside
  • Distillery: Cardhu
  • Age/Name: Gold Reserve
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 43% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

Soft toffee sweetness and crumbly red apples with a touch of poached pear. Soft baking spices and lightly toasted oak add some gravitas to an otherwise subtle nose, alongside a hint of crunchy malt.

PALATE

Soft and very delicate. More red apples and hard caramel, like those shards you get on a fancy dessert. Delicate spices – cinnamon, cardamom – build along the sides of the tongue, creating a little dryness.

FINISH

Dry, a touch of spice, and short

 

HOUSE LANNISTER

LAGAVULIN 9 YEARS OLD

Lagavulin is one of the most legendary single malt brands and has been crafted on the shores of Islay for more than 200 years – mirroring the meticulous calculation and tenacity employed by the Lannister’s in their rise to conquer the Iron Throne. This single malt whisky is a roaring single malt that recalls the Lannister’s riches and is best served neat or with a single drop of water.

  • Region: Islay
  • Distillery: Lagavulin
  • Age/Name: 9 years old
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 46% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

The first whiff is all peat smoke and sea salt, but it quickly reveals luscious juicy blackcurrants and fresh mint, raspberry leaf tea and mouth-watering stone fruits. The most alluring nose of the Game of Thrones Collection.

PALATE

Grilled, almost blackened bananas, blackcurrant coulis and soft gingerbread biscuits. Heavy vanilla cream and crispy marshmallows with deliciously gooey centres, toasted over a beach-side bonfire. It’s a tight palate, each element assuming its place in harmony with the next.

FINISH

Dry but long, with a moreish flavour of salted, almost burnt and caramel.

 

 

THE NIGHT’S WATCH

OBAN BAY RESERVE

The Oban distillery sits beneath the steep cliff that overlooks the bay in the frontier between the west Highlands and the Islands of Scotland, separating land and sea, just as Castle Black, home of The Night’s Watch, sits between Westeros and the lands beyond The Wall. The liquid’s richness is balanced with a woody, spicy dryness that The Night’s Watch could enjoy even on the coldest of nights.

  • Region: Highland
  • Distillery: Oban
  • Age/Name: Bay Reserve
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 43% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

The (not unpleasant) aroma of goat’s cheese and stale hay is striking, but calms into bitter cocoa powder and densely syrupy black morello cherries, accompanied by a waft of mentholic Vaporub and waxy petroleum jelly.

PALATE

The waxiness continues onto the palate, where dark berry pie, with blackcurrants, liquorice and cocoa nibs, dominates. Toasted oak spice prickles the sides of the tongue, while dried citrus peel, cloves and cinnamon add some lift.

FINISH

Dark fruits and a smidgen of that funky goat’s cheese.

 

 

HOUSE BARATHEON

ROYAL LOCHNAGAR 12 YEARS OLD

Royal lineage drives the iconic pairing between House Baratheon and Royal Lochnagar. Similar to Robert Baratheon ruling the Seven Kingdoms upon the Iron Throne, Royal Lochnagar was deemed a whisky worthy of a royal family as it was granted a Royal Warrant after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited the distillery in 1848. Balanced with delicate fruits and spices, this taste of royalty is best enjoyed neat.

 

  • Region: Highland
  • Distillery: Royal Lochnagar
  • Age/Name: 12 years old
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 40% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

Vibrant and engaging, all lemon zest and fragrant olive oil. Toasted oak and vanilla-rich cream toffees provide the sweetness, with floral/herbal notes of lemon verbena and cherry blossoms.

PALATE

Light and lemony-fresh with some zesty spice, but weighted by toasted oak, caramel and earthy liquorice. That viscous olive oil really coats the palate. Although a light, creamy toffee dessert emerges towards the finish, things remain citrus-accented throughout.

FINISH

Uplifting, refreshing and moreish, though just a hint of bitter furniture polish lingers.

 

 

HOUSE TULLY

SINGLETON OF GLENDULLAN

House Tully located at Riverrun, rules as the lord of The River lands. The power of water flows through both House Tully and The Singleton Glendullan Select as it is made on the banks of the River Fiddich in the wooded hills of Dufftown. Here they harnessed the water that flowed through the land utilizing a water wheel to power the entire distillery.

 

  • Region: Speyside
  • Distillery: Glendullan
  • Age/Name: Glendullan Select
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 40% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

Top notes of green apples, with a richer, underlying sweetness of sticky blood orange spiked with cloves and currants. Crushed milk chocolate digestives and melting vanilla ice cream.

PALATE

Softer than the nose would suggest, diving straight into a pot of vanilla custard and melting chocolate chips. The dessert moves into baked orchard fruits and Belvita biscuits, with soft spices adding some grip and warming heat along the sides.

FINISH

Slightly dry. Toasted oak and roasted apples with a touch of char

 

HOUSE GREYJOY

TALISKER SELECT RESERVE

House Greyjoy rules the Iron Islands and worships the Drowned God. Talisker was a natural pair for House Greyjoy as this single malt is distilled on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote and rugged areas of Scotland. The layered flavors and signature maritime character of Talisker Select Reserve are the result of its wave-battered shores. This liquid is an intense smoky single malt Scotch with spicy, powerful and sweet elements combined with maritime flavors.

  • Region: Island
  • Distillery: Talisker
  • Age/Name: Select Reserve
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 45.8% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

Soft cooked orchard fruits with a hint of coastal salt and bonfire smoke. Give it a moment to open the glass for notes of dark chocolate, crystallised ginger and freshly diced red chilli.

PALATE

Initially there’s an overriding sweetness of warm toffee sauce, before a waft of salty smoke delivers the unmistakable zing of Szechuan pepper. Despite the spice it retains a creamy consistency throughout, the dark chocolate becoming milkier and joined by dried fruits, brown sugar and Jamaican ginger cake.

FINISH

Zingy still, but softer, slowly fading.

 

HOUSE TYRELL

CLYNELISH RESERVE

House Tyrell of Highgarden rules over the Reach, the lush and fertile region of Westeros. Like the Reach, Clynelish is positioned among green pastures and rolling hills, with scenic views of the North Sea. This vibrant, golden Scotch is light and floral, like House Tyrell, and it’s not to be underestimated with its underlying complex combination of Highland and maritime qualities.

  • Region: Highland
  • Distillery: Clynelish
  • Age/Name: Clynelish Reserve
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 51.2% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller

 

NOSE

There’s initially an overwhelming sense of furniture polish and beeswax, but leave it a few moments to settle in the glass and it relaxes into dried, leathery papaya and juicy guava and mango. After more time it becomes meatier still, accented by creamy vanilla and the gentle sour aroma of a freshly-baked chewy brown loaf, although the sting of astringent polish lurks in the corner.

PALATE

Chewy and viscous, and not at all as spicy as the abv would suggest – the highest of the collection. Those tropical fruits roll onto the palate, accompanied by the salty, leathery pull of cured Spanish ham. Water loosens the fruits and things become juicier.

FINISH

Dry, and mouth-wateringly zingy.

 

HOUSE STARK

DALWHINNIE WINTER’S FROST

House Stark’s resiliency, strength and ability to thrive under the most intense situations are greatly shaped by Winterfell’s frigid temperatures. Dalwhinnie, known for being one of the highest distilleries in all of Scotland, is cold and remote much like The North where House Stark calls home, making the two an iconic pairing. Extreme conditions are responsible for shaping the signature Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost honeyed sweetness and spicy warmth. Naturally, it’s best served chilled or over ice.

 

  • Region: Highland
  • Distillery: Dalwhinnie
  • Age/Name: Winters
  • Size: 70cl
  • Strength: 43% ABV
  • Bottled By: Distiller
  • Chill-Filtered: Yes

NOSE

That classic, clean Dalwhinnie combination of sweet honey and delicate fruits. Dried hay and crunchy malt give substance from the off, before set heather honey and fresh citrus fruits – grapefruit, blood orange juice – add lift. There’s vanilla caramel sweetness and a generous bowl of (still crunchy) Crunchy Nut Cornflakes. A real ‘breakfast dram’.

PALATE

Sweet, crunchy malt and some nuttiness. Lemon sherbets and green apple lift things up as a touch of black pepper spice sets the tongue buzzing. But there it reaches its limit; things remain pretty two-dimensional from here on, aside from the warming effect of sucking on barley sugars and cough candies.

FINISH

Some Robinsons lemon barley water and hard caramel. Pretty short.
