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.
So let's start with Cardhu: Gold Reserve House of Targaryen. I'm not going to get into a commentary on the show, it's characters or it's story line. I really don't have enough space! And with Cardhu it's all about the sweetness, from the toasty oak to the creamy malt and the sweet apple fruitiness with even a touch of marzipan. There's also a hint of kitchen spice as well.
