Lagavulin 9yo 700ml Game of Thrones
This is a special limited-edition bottling of single malt Scotch whisky that was released as part of a collaboration between Diageo and US TV network HBO, producers of the enormously successful Game of Thrones series. The show served as inspiration for each of the whiskies, which were paired with one of the iconic Houses of Westeros.
Lagavulin 9 Year Old is a roaring single malt that leaves an intensely smoky flavour in every sip. The golden liquid recalls the Lannisters’ riches and comes from being exclusively matured in first fill ex-Bourbon casks. The nose is characteristic of Lagavulin and bursts with sweet smoke, with a slightly zestier, maritime scent than other expressions. On the palate it opens with smoky, caramelised banana, burnt marshmallow and vanilla, fading into a salted caramel finish.
