Cardhu Gold Reserve: House Targaryen Edition. Image courtesy Diageo.Another one of the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection from Diageo. This is one of the few whiskies that’s based on an existing expression in the Diageo portfolio, though the regular Cardhu Gold Reserve is not available in all markets. The nose has notes of red apples, baking spices, and hints of caramel candy and honey. The taste starts off creamy at first, followed by a burst of clove and a fruity tartness underneath with caramel apples and honey. The finish is long with a lingering tartness and a touch of clove.
