  1. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Affordable after the hype.
    Diageo's Game of Throne Single Malt Collection pays homage to the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, with seven of the limited editions representing one of the houses and the Night's Watch.

    One of those rare different expression of a most wanted distillery. Came on nice price a year after the initial release. Like all those Game Of thrones editions this one is also different than the usual distillery bottling, even quite different - with some strange mix of sharp flavours on the expence of the usual maltiness. No sherry here but not too peppery either and not bad for a no age statement.

    Whisky tastes better than it smells. This is (for me) a surprise. The second time I met with such a phenomenon (finlaggan sherry finished was the first time) Compensation in taste and finish is a great ending and worth waiting for. First of all, sweetness, but not "tweak" wrapped in a cigarette, does a great job. So far I can feel its aftertaste, although a lot of time has passed after tasting ..... Note in my notebook ..... Need to buy a second bottle !!!

      alcohol completely disappeared, again a lot of cigarette smoke, chili, quite sweet, ripe cherries, caramel
    • Finish
      89 89
      long, smoky, sweet, very pleasant, slightly salty at the end with hints of heather and crumble on yeast dough, pleasant "mole" on the tongue.

    Talisker Select Reserve (Game of Thrones Limited Edition) 45.8%

    28.79 euros in September 2020


    Butterscotch. Overripe fruits, cake base. Somewhat »stinky«, engineering, machine oil, workshop, smoke, fresh herbal aromas

    On the palate, buttery, catchy, some caramel, dry fruitiness, spicy heat and a bitter counterpoint to the sweetness. Smoke! Not exciting, but solid and good.

    Medium-long finish with gentle smoke from the nose

    82 points
