Talisker Select Reserve Game of Thrones House Greyjoy Review


25th February 2019
Review of the Talisker Select Reserve which has been paired with House Greyjoy in The Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection.

Talisker Select Reserve Game of Thrones House GreyjoyThe Talisker Select Reserve Game of Thrones House Greyjoy is one of a limited edition collection of eight single malt whiskies which has been released to coincide with the showing of the final season of the critically-acclaimed TV series.

Talisker Select Reserve has been paired with House Greyjoy from the TV series which I have been told rules the Iron Islands and worships the Drowned God making it a natural pairing for House Greyjoy as this single malt which is known for its peppery smoke character is distilled on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote and rugged areas of Scotland.

Bottled at 45.8% ABV, with RRP of £48 the Talisker Select Reserve Game of Thrones House Greyjoy is now available from Amazon


William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Light pepper and smoke which becomes a little spicier the more you nose it, some shy young citrus fruit, a little sweet honey and dark chocolate.

Taste: Gentle lemon and pear coated in Talisker's delicious signature spicy pepper, some salted caramel compliments the brown sugar sweetness.

Finish: A deliciously long, rich, sweet finish with vanilla, oak, spice - pepper and a lovely gentle touch of ginger.

Comment: It hasn't got a big in your face Talisker peppery nose but it is delicious on the palate and long finish, another quality expression from the Isle of Skye distillery or should I say House Greyjoy.

I have to admit I haven't followed The Game of Thrones series so I couldn't predict which whisky will prove to be more popular than others in the collection but from a whisky drinking point of view I can say that the Talisker Select Reserve Game of Thrones House Greyjoy is the best of the Game of Thrones releases I have tasted so far and certainly one worth seeking out whether it is for drinking or collecting but don't hang around, grab a bottle while you can, now available from Amazon

SMW Score 90/100
