Royal Lochnagar 12: House Baratheon Edition. Image courtesy Diageo.One of the eight whiskies in Diageo’s Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection, and from one of the few distilleries in Scotland allowed to use “Royal” in its name. The nose has the aroma of a vanilla latté, along with raspberries, peaches, and a hint of oak sawdust. The taste is tart with notes of citrus fruits, crystallized ginger, and vanilla custard. The finish is very long with a citrusy tartness and touches of ginger and oak. Overall, a very juicy and mouthwatering dram. (April, 2019)
