Royal Lochnagar 12 Year (Game of Thrones-House Baratheon)
Royal Lochnagar // Highlands, Scotland
Royal Lochnagar 12 Year House Baratheon is one of eight single malts Scotch whiskies made to commemorate the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. Set to hit shelves in the fall of 2018, this 12 year-old single malt features the sigil for House Baratheon--a crowned black stag.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Hints of grass and lemon zest on the nose, followed by whiffs of candied oranges. There’s a touch of galia melon too. Simple, yet fairly pleasant. The palate is surprisingly earthy and with a burst of dry oak, it also displays soft notes of pineapple and lemon yogurt. Slightly herbal with hints of basil. Again, not overly complex, but certainly enjoyable."
