To celebrate the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, Diageo have collaborated with HBO to release a limited edition collection of eight single malt Scotch whiskies inspired by each of the Houses of Westeros and the Night's Watch.
Oban distillery sits beneath the steep cliff that overlooks the bay in the frontier between the Highlands and the Islands, separating land and sea, just as Castle Black sits between Westeros and what lies beyond The Wall and the terrifying forces of the Night King. Bottled at 43% abv, this limited edition could certainly keep the Night's Watch warm on even the coldest of nights.
The nose has straw and tangy cereal notes, before mellowing to cocoa and cherry. The palate is rich and mouth-coating with cherry pie and candied orange peel. The finish is long and rich with creme caramel and charred oak aspects.
