Royal Lochnagar 12 Year Old
70cl / 40%
Game of Thrones House Baratheon
- Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
Robert Baratheon claimed his seat upon the Iron Throne after a bitter rebellion against the Targaryen dynasty, and ruled over the Seven Kingdoms wearing a golden antlered crown to show his power and honouring his House emblem – the Stag. Royal Lochnagar also enjoys royal connection, having held a Royal Warrant, first awarded by Queen Victoria, since 1848. Unlike House Baratheon, whose rule is over and whose family lies in ruins, Royal Lochnagar has only grown in strength. Its reputation for incredible whiskies has grown and spread, and it has maintained praise from British monarchs. Well balanced, fruity and spicy, it truly is a taste of royalty.
A light amber colour of this single malt echoes the light and delicate aromas of this 12-year-old Royal Lochnagar. It starts with gentle oak aromas that develop into sweeter caramel tones with a fruity edge. When you taste it there are immediate sweet layers of vanilla and liquorice, which blend into a gentle finish of nutmeg and sweet pastries.

Tasting Notes from the Producer
Nose: The pale amber colour of this single malt is light & delicate just like the aromas of this 12 year old Royal Lochnagar which develops soft notes of oak before moving into hints of banana foster with caramelised turbinado sugar.
Palate: On the palate it's sweet on the opening with layers of liquorice and rich, creamy vanilla coffee.
Finish: The palate blends into a long finish with mild nutmeg and a creamy custard tart finish.
