Would be interested to know number of bottles per release.

They look well presented and good for the fans, but having never watched it, I might buy 1 or 2 of the collection for drinking.

Yes I thought it was good for the price but looked everywhere for numbers that are going to be released but can't find anything.

I haven't heard any numbers, I doubt that they will be revealing the numbers, perhaps the numbers are flexible depending on demand

Well look at that first release. The Johnnie walker white walker. That was "limited" still selling bottles and that includes litre bottles in the airport. I don't the rest of these will be to that extent but I fully expect there to be a quite high volume of stuff. Diageo will be making good money from alot of these releases considering most are NAS and are sold out at the pre-order stage

I haven't heard any numbers myself. There was plenty of House Tully & Singleton of Glendullan Reserve at Glasgow airport on Friday when I passed through the World of Whiskies shop, the only other Game of Thrones single malt they did have was the House Stark & Dalwhinnie Winter's Frost which they told me sold out very quickly.

Interesting that they are for pre-release at the request of the supplier. Perhaps if it all sells out they’ll bottle more?

I noticed that they are all available for pre-order on Amazon with a release date of Feb 18th. I am sure I will be like others, I would be interested in tasting the Lagavulin, Dalwhinnie and Talisker.

For the price they are I would be more interested in tasting a few of them rather than collecting and if I think any are good I shall put a few bottles away in the cupboard.

I just happened to spot them for sale the other morning and had a look but then a customer came in the shop and by the time I got back to the computer they had sold out Sad

I hope the pre order are not marked as a second batch?

I've gone for the Lagavulin, Oban and Dalwhinnie as those three seemed to get the best write up! Would be nice to have the whole collection but like people say, it's probably best to taste them first.

Are these brand new expressions?

Or simply existing expressions in new packaging?
