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.
I like Royal Lochnager. Rich and malty, soft oak, a touch fruity and overall, just a damn fine dram. But this distillery is so well hidden. Such a shame. So, I looked forward to seeing this one under the GOT guise. Pleasingly this a 12yo dram and it shows a supple, well balanced style. All American oak of course. Not the most expressive RL I've seen, but when you just can't get hold of an OB, this will have to do.
