Talisker Select Reserve: House Greyjoy Edition. Image courtesy Diageo.Part of the Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection from Diageo. In Game of Thrones, the Greyjoys ruled the Iron Islands, and this whisky comes from Scotland’s Isle of Mull. The nose is dark and smoky with a nice oakiness,  dark chocolate, campfire smoke, and the aroma of barbecued beef. The taste is spicy with chili powder, white pepper, and a hint of campfire smoke balanced by grilled fruits, toasted caramel, and a hint of honey. The finish is long, complex, and smoky with hints of pipe tobacco and old leather. Excellent! (April, 2019)
