SIX KINGDOMS, MORTLACH 15 YEAR OLD 30ml ABV: 46% - NEWLY RELEASED
The oldest whisky in the Game of Thrones range, this 15-year-old from Mortlach distillery has been aged in both first-fill sherry casks and ex-bourbon barrels. A whisky with depth to match the roots of the oldest weir-wood tree, it combines fresh fruit, vanilla and wood-spice flavours – a trio worthy of the Three-eyed Raven which adorns the bottle.
HOUSE TYRELL, CLYNELISH RESERVE 30ml NAS ABV: 51.2%
With a dryness comparable to the wit of the Queen of Thorns, a flavourful palate worthy of the The Reach's rich soil and a 51.2% ABV as punchy as the Tyrell armies, this Clynelish offers up an excellent balance of sweet and dry; wood, leather and zesty, tropical fruit.
WHITE WALKER by JOHNNY WALKER 30ml, NAS ABV: 41.7%
"Tall ... and gaunt and hard as old bones, with flesh pale as milk with eyes a blue that burned like ice". A whisky designed to be sipped straight from the freezer and allowed to develop as it warms. With notes of vanilla and fresh fruit.
HOUSE TULLY, THE SINGLETON OF GLENDULLAN SELECT 30ml NAS ABV: 40%
From Dufftown on the banks of the River Fiddich, The Singleton of Glendullan is, much like House Tully, a product of the Riverlands – just with a lower-case 'r'. A sweet and fruity dram, this single malt is heaving with vanilla, chocolate and cereal notes, all lifted by a lively spice.
HOUSE TARGARYEN, CARDHU GOLD RESERVE 30ml, NAS ABV: 40%
A Cardhu with the warmth and spice to conquer the Seven Kingdoms, and the delicacy to rule them: this Speyside single malt is a cornucopia of orchard fruit, freshly-baked crumble, a touch of caramel on the side and a drying finish.
HOUSE BARATHEON, ROYAL LOCHNAGAR 12 YEAR OLD 30ml ABV: 40%
A tumultuous dram worthy of the Stormlands, and House Baratheon's internal conflict. At once zesty, citrus and floral, and earthy and lightly bitter, this whisky – like House Baratheon – has two sides to it: the light and the dark; the jovial and the brutish.
HOUSE STARK, DALWHINNIE WINTER’S FROST 30ml AGE: NAS, ABV: 43%
The Starks embody all the best of the North; full of warmth and honesty, what you see is, for the most part, what you get – and so it is with Dalwhinnie Winter's Frost. Despite its name, this single malt is a warming, summery dram full of bitter-sweet citrus and candied zest.
THE NIGHT'S WATCH, OBAN BAY RESERVE 30ML, NAS ABV:43%
Despite its members' dark demons, The Night's Watch is the light of the Seven Kingdoms; the first defense against the encroaching Long Night. This waxy, complex Oban shares that nature: behind this bottle's dark exterior lies a substantial, yet light dram in which berry fruit and cocoa are lifted by an airy menthol note.
HOUSE LANNISTER, LAGAVULIN 9 YEAR OLD 30ml ABV: 46%
A whisky as rich as the Lannisters, this is a fantastic Lagavulin full of all the thick peat smoke and sweet, chewy, citrus-fruit notes you'd expect from the distillery. Golden caramel and vanilla join the fray, alongside a flash of vibrant greenery.
HOUSE GREYJOY, TALISKER SELECT RESERVE 30ml AGE: NAS ABV: 45.8%
Talisker is 'made by the sea'; House Greyjoy and the people of the Iron Islands are seafaring folk who worship the Drowned God – the sea is intrinsic to both, and as evident in this whisky as you'd expect. Coastal, briny notes mingle with wafts of wood-smoke, savory seaweed on stone and a rich, spicy sweetness.
