Diageo finally introduced the long discussed Game Of Thrones Single Malt Whisky Collection. Since I knew what the whiskies were, I decided to buy Lagavulin 9 first, since it was an age I never tried from the well known distillery. Lagavulin 9 is assigned to House Of Lannisters, which is known to always pay their debts.
Now let's see if it is just a marketing gimmick? Or was it worth the wait and paying $69.99?
Nose has imminent hit of eucalyptus on the nose which grabs your attention in a second. It turns into a bubblegum character with cantaloupe, nutmeg and custard notes. Sweet peat blends into vanilla and oak. Finally sandal wood after some air.
Palate starts sweet with black peppers rushing to back. Mid palate has demerara, treacle, chocolate notes. Not chewy but not thin. There is a little bit of peppermint attack to the back. An easy drinkable, softer Lagavulin when you compare with the other expressions.
Finish is medium long with a touch of salt and peat.
Verdict is I like this whisky. I mean for what it is, you find a pleasant whisky with a different style of Lagavulin. I am pretty sure this whisky would have a big follower crowd if it wasn't a part of a gimmicky collection. Comparing it with Lagavulin 16 wouldn't be fair. But I am sure I will keep a bottle in my cabinet. 🇹🇷Türkçe değerlendirmem yorumlarda! 🥃🥃🥃 #whisky#whiskey#viski#gameofthrones#drinkingthedream#lagavulin#lannister
