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. 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.
This single malt is a light amber in colour with delicate aromas of this 12-year-old Royal Lochnagar. Starting off on the nose with gentle oak aromas that develop into sweeter caramel tones with a fruity edge. On the palate there are immediate sweet layers of vanilla and liquorice, which blend into a gentle finish of nutmeg and sweet pastries.
