Oban Bay Reserve Game Of Thrones The Night's Watch
700ml 43%

Game Of Thrones: On of the most watched TV shows on earth and as the The Guardian reported, "by 2014 it was "the biggest drama" and "the most talked about show" on television". So, it made entire sense when global drinks behemoth, Diageo (owner of Johnnie Walker etc etc etc) decided to have a single malt tie in. And didn't the fans just love it, as it almost sold out instantly in 2019 when the set of eight themed malts were released.

To think, that almost twelve months ago, I was at the Oban distillery, wondering what all these  "Night Watch" motifs plastered over the visitors centre and the still house.  I was a touch naive about the whole GOT phenomena.  And so to the Oban GOT: copped a bit of criticism from some whisky folks for being a tad too easy drinking, but Markjedi1 on WhiskyBase reckons, "Good body. Creamy and round. The fruit returns, but is joined with some nutmeg, black pepper and cinnamon. Some mint. A very malty heart and a sweet note, drying a bit as it lingers on the palate. Dark caramel. Marzipan and salted caramel. I quite like this. The medium long to long finish still offers up spices, while the sweet notes are overcome by salty notes. A bitterness at the death. 85/100."
