While the final battles have been fought and a new king sits on the Iron Throne, you can still revel in the glory of the Game of Thrones with this special commemorative release from Lagavulin. While we don’t typically go for gimmicky, TV-show-themed bottlings, this Game of Thrones-inspired line up has been so good that we’ve been forced to reconsider our stance. This 9 Year Old expression was finished in first-fill ex-bourbon casks, imparting bold flavors to this traditionally restrained single malt. Power-packed, yet not without an element of refinement, this Islay beauty is likely to turn more than a few heads. Impeccably balanced and engagingly complex, this is one of the most intriguing Lagavulins we’ve tasted this year. Now for the best part – we are offering this exceptional dram for a fraction of its regular price. So not only is this a superior single malt, but it is also an incredible value. As this is part of a closeout deal, we likely won’t see any more of this very special bottling and certainly not at such an attractive price. Whether you enjoy Lagavulin or are a champion of House Lannister (or both!), you will find plenty to enjoy in this limited release.

90 points Whisky Advocate: “Lagavulin at an odd age, representing House Lannister and showcasing its lion sigil. The nose is floral, with rose hips, toffee, and fragrant peat notes. Full on the palate, with toffee apples, cinnamon, earthy peat, and smoked haddock in salted butter. The smoked fish combines with fennel in the lengthy finish. (GS, Spring 2019)”

K&L Notes: Part of Diageo’s line of eight single malt whiskies to commemorate the eighth and final season of HBO’s hit television series “Game of Thrones”, which is based on the series of novels “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. The Lannisters are known for their meticulousness and tenacity, traits also embodied by the legendary distillery Lagavulin. Tasting note: “Lagavulin 9 Year Old is a roaring single malt that leaves an intensely smoky flavour in every sip. The golden liquid recalls the Lannisters’ riches and comes from being exclusively matured in first fill ex-Bourbon casks. The nose is characteristic of Lagavulin and bursts with sweet smoke, with a slightly zestier, maritime scent than other expressions. On the palate it opens with smoky, caramelised banana, burnt marshmallow and vanilla, fading into a salted caramel finish.”
