This is a promotional release from Diageo for the Game of Thrones television series on HBO. This comes to us from Clynelish. While it's a NAS release, it features a hefty ABV bump over the OB Clynelish 14. It's been more than a year since I had and reviewed this right after launch, and it was poured for me, so I thought it may be a nice exercise in palate evolution.
Fresh baked bread, honey, toffee, waxy fruits like apple and pear. Faint ash, light pepper, nice light sherry note
Rich palate, mild heat, but lots of complexity. Pepper, faint smoke, sweet honey and toffee. Faint plum, more fresh baked bread.
Long, powerful and complex. Fresh baked bread, toffee, sweet creme brulee and faint ash. More nice pepper and even a faint bit of salinity. Waxy fruitiness.
Overall, a big fan of this. I think it may be my favorite of the releases I've had from the GoT line, but I still need to try one or two.
