Finish: Medium length. A bit of barrel char / charcoal appears, and while the meaty/coppery flavor persists, a lot of the fruit has dropped out. Fades without much evolution, aside from a ghost of menthol on the very tail end. We saw an overwhelmingly positive response to the launch of the Game of Thrones Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection and as Game of Thrones fans continue to explore both the world of whisky and the world of Westeros, we are proud to introduce the final addition to the collection. Mortlach is one of our most sought-after super premium single malts, and seemed fitting as the perfect finale to complete the collection,” commented Kavita Agarwal, Diageo Global Brand Director, Malts.

As you’ll see as The Dramble gradually works our way through the new core range – whilst the spirit character still presents as weighty and textural, the meaty, sometimes sulphurous, ‘beastliness’ is not where Diageo see the distillery’s new range going. It’s still recognisably a leopard, but it has changed its spots, both in profile and, pleasingly, in its new (more realistic) market proposition. We may, but are not under any obligation, to release new functionalities and tools or other features for the Service every now and then.

The design pays homage to the independence of the north, which was granted by Bran Stark, who served as the Three-Eyed Raven. He was chosen as king of the Six Kingdoms in the finale. Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. Palate: Heavy body. Moderate burn, slightly hotter than I’d expect for 46% ABV. Flavorful, with a lot of the same notes from the aroma repeated. A chewy date shake with banana cream. Nose: Sherry bomb with dark fruits, blood orange, vanilla, hint of smoke, worn leather, sulfur with a subtle note of grapefruit.

I’ve always considered Mortlach to be rather the enthusiasts whisky. The 2014 flop a brand relaunch might have introduced it to a few more punters, but it obviously didn’t shift enough bottles to satisfy owners Diageo. Overpriced, under filled and largely uninspired, I won’t dissect the old range further – but what I do find interesting, is how very un-2019 ‘new Mortlach’ feels. Self-indulgent hype, near shameful price rises (Balblair 25 year old I see you) and a ravenousness desire for selling anything to make a mere couple of quid –‘new’ Mortlach doesn’t feel like any of these things to me. Though it has taken a rather humble re-re-launch to get there. Diageo is preparing the final chapter in their partnership with Game of Thrones. As we’ve mentioned before, in addition to the special editions from Johnnie Walker, they embarked on a series of nine special edition Single Malts from their brand portfolio. Game of Thrones Mortlach 15 Year-Old — named “Six Kingdoms” — is the ninth and final release in the line. Turning the traditional model of Single Malt aging on its head, the Six Kingdoms release was aged in first-fill Sherry casks and finished in ex-Bourbon barrels. This lets the fruit and fig notes push the fore at a spot-on perfect 46% ABV.PALATE: Fresh fruit & creamy vanilla, woody, aromatic spice combining with hints of cinnamon and a warming woodiness. The UK drinks giant teamed up with the show’s network HBO to produce the range of single malt Scotch whiskies in celebration of the eighth and final series of Game of Thrones this year.

This Mortlach was matured in first-fill Oloroso sherry-seasoned casks and finished in ex-bourbon barrels. It is significantly more expensive than the others and comes in a gold canister. In addition to the single malt range, Diageo’s blended Scotch whisky brand Johnnie Walker launched two limited edition Game of Thrones-themed expressions, called A Song of Ice and A Song of Fire. Taste: The arrival is a little thinner than I’d have hoped for – but, interestingly some waxy textual elements develop once properly in the mouth. Tinned fruit – peaches and apricots alongside mango juice, tobacco leaves, and gingerbread. Chocolate and dusty cinnamon and ginger spices emerge in the mid-palate, whilst creamy toffee and floral oiliness are joined by raisins and sultanas. Dilution once again takes things in a malty direction – chocolate covered digestives, Rich Tea biscuits and French crepes with flan and tart cases. A lot has been written about this series. It was supposed to be limited but then re-issued, heavily discounted and even then it’s still rather widely available. It was supposed to be collectible as well, but as long as shops don’t manage to sell their allocation then no price increase is to be expected. Some say it was just a hype, merchandising with no real quality (with a few exceptions). Etcetera, etcetera. Now that the dust has settled, let’s find out…
