Talisker Select Reserve House Greyjoy is one of eight single malts Scotch whiskies made to commemorate the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones. This Talisker single malt bears the sigil for House Greyjoy - the kraken.
The nose is warm and brooding, with smoked paprika, smoldering embers, and touches of brine. Hints of beef jerky too. Good stuff. The palate gives a good amount of, yet subtle coastal peat influence, leaving room for charred orange peel, toasted oak and chili pepper. Pretty salty, as well as a touch of caramel. Tasty indeed. One of the highlights of this series.
