SINGLETON - GAME OF THRONES 750 ML
Game of Thrones. Scotch whisky. Brought together by Diageo and HBO. These limited-edition bottlings should prove very popular indeed.
The Singleton Glendullan Reserve was crafted in Speyside's legendary Dufftown, which produces more malt whisky than any other town in Scotland. Glendullan is located on the banks of the River Fiddich, so its fitting that it was paired with House Tully at Riverrun, which is in the region known as The Riverlands. This single malt Scotch whisky is decorated with a jumping trout - the sigil of House Tully.
The light straw shimmer of this liquid hints at the cask lineage of this Single Malt that is 100% ex-Bourbon casks; that’s confirmed by the heavy Madagascar vanilla opening on the nose followed by a suggestion of sweet, clove spice that develops over time. On the palate it’s initially driven by orchard fruits like apple; the clove returns but now with cinnamon as the palate develops. The finish moves away from citrus into a red berry compote with vanilla cheesecake and a pronounced cereal spice finish.
