HBO has collaborated with Diageo to release a limited edition range of 8 scotch whiskeys and Johnnie Walker has come up with its own tribute to the Iconic series. Now, you can show your allegiance to your favorite House by choosing the whiskey dedicated to it or buy the entire set. In this post, we at Wiki Of Thrones don’t just help you with the list of all the Game of Thrones whiskey available, but we’ll also share details about them.

We got more than 75 requests on our email address after we posted about the newly launched whiskey. It’s because they weren’t able to find out the authentic stores from where they could buy the real ones. It took us a while and after testing out a few online stores, we’re finally here with the list of whiskeys which were launched and the places from where one can buy it.

“That is what I do. I drink, and I know things.”

“The cold winds are rising and the dead rise with them.” But not so fast. It’s more than a month’s wait until we see the white walkers marching past the Wall as Winter finally comes to Westeros. While most of us are waiting for the magic, one last time, what can we do? Well, we can drink and know things!

Clynelish Reserve for House Tyrell

Type: Single malt
Alcohol content: 51.2% Vol

This scotch whiskey comes from the Clynelish distillery in the lush green pastures and hills of Scotland that make us think of the fertile Reach where Highgarden, House Tyrell’s seat, is situated.

The beautiful golden color is quite like the golden rose which is this wealthy House’s sigil. It has a fruity aroma with very prominent notes of mango and papaya.

As you swirl it around in your mouth, you can expect a flavor of tropical fruits, followed by creamy vanilla, sweet honey, and finally a smoky undertone to round it off nicely. It is best served chilled and on lots of ice. The Queen of Thorns approves.

Royal Lochnagar for House Baratheon

Type: Single malt
Alcohol content: 40% Vol
Aged for: 12 years

The Royal Lochnagar Distillery does have a royal backstory. In 1848, when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited the distillery, they liked the scotch they were served so well, that they issued a royal warrant to the distillery. That makes this single malt whiskey a drink fit for the kings and queens.

This amber colored scotch has an oaky aroma with an earthy feel to it. It goes well with Robert’s loud and reckless personality. But it also has the fragrance of sweet licorice to it that could be linked to Renly with his more agreeable demeanor. The taste is a wonderful balance between sweet and spice with coffee-vanilla finish and just a hint of nutmeg.

Talisker Select Reserve for House Greyjoy

Type: Single malt

Alcohol content: 45.8% Vol

This golden colored whiskey is from the Talisker distillery which is on the shores of the Isle of Skye in Scotland, much like the Iron Islands in the Sunset Sea.

It has a spicy, smoky, and peppery aroma which reminds you of the strong, proud, Ironborn who have a mind of their own. And you can feel the salt on your tongue as you enjoy the flavors of salted caramel, dark chocolate, and a little bit of chili and oak. The overall finish is smokey with a hint of fruit.

Singleton of Glendullan Select for House Tully

Type: Single malt

Alcohol content: 40% Vol

This bottle of golden whiskey which is dedicated to the Tullys of Riverrun is from a distillery on the banks of the River Fiddich in Dufftown. For the aroma, think sandalwood, orange peel and something sweet.

The taste is rich and fruity and the feel is warm and smooth. What better pairing than with the House Tully known for their understated yet strong views about Family, Duty, Honor?

Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost for House Stark

Type: Single malt

Alcohol content: 43%

The Dalwhinnie distillery is at a cold and isolated place in Scotland quite like the North which is home to the Starks. And this single malt scotch whiskey is concocted in the harsh, cold conditions which make you think of the Northerners toughened by the freezing temperatures and severe climate.

It has a floral aroma with overages of apples and pears. The taste is of honey and fresh fig, and a hint of subdued spice. The overall effect is warm, crisp, malt-like and totally delicious.

Lagavulin 9 Year Old for House Lannister

Type: Single malt

Alcohol content: 46% Vol

Aged for: 9 years

The powerful and rich Lannister House of the Casterly Rock found its match in the legendary distillers Lagavulin on the shores of Islay. This rich, intense, and classy spirit is the perfect pair for the proud and regal Lannisters. It has a sweet but smoky aroma and the distinct smell of the saltwater. The taste is a burst of flavor with notes of vanilla, caramel, banana, oak,  marshmallows, and a dry and smoky finish.

The complexity of the taste goes well with the complexity of the different members of the House – Cersei, Jaime, Tyrion, and Tywin – all with a strong but distinct personality.

Cardhu Gold Reserve for House Targaryen

Type: Single malt

Alcohol content: 40% Vol

The Cardhu distillery was started by two strong women Helen Cumming and her daughter-in-law Elizabeth, back in the 1800s. Pairing the scotch from this distillery with another strong female character, Daenerys’s House Targaryen is almost poetic.

The aroma is light on the nose and will make you think of baking apples and spices. The taste is on the sweeter side with a nutty undertone and a hint of clove. Overall, it has a smooth, light, and dry caramel finish.

Oban Bay Reserve for the Night’s Watch

Type: Single malt

Alcohol content: 43% Vol

When we are on the subject of Game of Thrones whiskeys, how can we not have one dedicated to the men in black who are shields that guard the realms of men? The Oban distillery that is located beneath a cliff overlooking the bay between the West Highlands and the Islands of Scotland reminds us of Castle Black.

In honor of the black cloaks of the Night’s Watch, this golden scotch comes in an all-black packaging. The aroma is of rich and sweet orange peel and cherry pie. It has a discernible taste of wood and sugar with a subtle fruity quality and a hint of smoke. It has a dry, caramel finish. An excellent scotch and the opaque, black bottle looks great on the shelf too! And oh yes! Don’t forget to read out the vow on the back of the bottle before you open it.

 

White Walker for the White Walkers

Type: Blended Scotch

Alcohol content: 41.7% Vol

Do you believe in the theory that the White Walkers are actually the good side? Then this is whiskey from Johnnie Walker is for you. If you don’t believe in these theories, you should still add it to your Game of Thrones Whiskey Collection for the sheer cleverness with which this has been made. The white bottle, denoting the cold snowy winter and the walkers beyond the wall, is supposed to be refrigerated. And when the temperature is just right (read freezing), these words appear on the bottle: “Winter is Coming”. How nifty is that!

The scotch is a blend of the Cardhu and Clynelish single malts. The aroma is a blend of dried apricots, vanilla, toffee, and ginger. The flavors are a wonderful pirouette of caramelized sugar, berries, cinnamon and almonds in your mouth. Excellent addition to complete your Game of Thrones Whiskey set!

Kit Harington looks compelling in Netflix’s Criminal season 2 trailer

Jon Snow

Watching our favorite stars play out a radically different character has always been a matter of interest. One of the most likable characters on our favorite show Game of Thrones was Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington. Unlike Jon, Kit seems to know something in Criminals season 2 trailer.

Kit plays the role of a smug estate agent, who is accused of rape. He gets frustrated about being questioned about the same in the trailer. The show’s setting gives you chills as he establishes himself as a self-entitled rich guy who gets what he wants. His angry outbursts only make it worse for him. But is he guilty?

Harington’s new character is a far cry from his bumbling, humble, and heroic character of Jon Snow. Jon Snow was a life-changing role for Kit (Check out his farewell speech for Game of Thrones), but the new edgy role will solidify his versatility. Not to mention his new haircut for the show, sure to gather some attention.

The Netflix series turned in heads after the introduction of its cast for season two. Other than Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, the show has cast 3 more extremely talented artists. Kunal Nayyar from The Big Bang Theory, Sophie Okonedo, an Oscar nominee, and Sharon Horgan from the comedy Catastrophe will also be seen in the series.

From not knowing anything as Jon Snow, to a cunning, perverted estate agent, Kit Harington has come a long way. Being a fan favorite on one of the biggest TV shows ever made, his job will not be easy as a different character. We can be sure he can pull it off with his amazing acting skills.

Jason Momoa looks badass in the new ‘Dune’ movie trailer

Jason Momoa

Some actors in Hollywood are famous for their macho style. Jason Momoa has made a name for himself in that category, in each of his roles. Be it Khal Drogo of Game of Thrones, or Arthur Curry of Aquaman, the actor reeks of badassery. He has done it yet again as Duncan Idaho in the latest movie adaptation of the sci-fi novel Dune.

Jason Momoa sports an unbearded look as Duncan Idaho in the Dune movie trailer. He looks menacing even without his beard. His character, Duncan, is a total badass in House Atreides. Jason compared his character to Han Solo of Star Wars in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Khal Drogo

Momoa received widespread praise for his work as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. His character as a powerful warlord, who was the leader of a huge Dothraki army created an impactful image in the audience’s mind. It was so impressive people used to get confused if he knew English at all! Jason played the role for 10 episodes in season 1.

Dune is an award-winning novel written by author Frank Herbert in 1965. Dune was first adapted for the big screen by David Lynch in 1984. It was a success on the box-office and the film is still revered by its fans. The new adaptation of the movie holds great promise and the fans are expecting it to be much better than the previous version.

The director of the new Dune movie is Denis Villeneuve. The movie is set to release on 18th December 2020. It is predicted to be one of the major films of this year. The presence of Jason Momoa makes it all the more exciting to watch.

What do you expect from the movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Maisie Williams recreates Arya Stark’s iconic Night King kill move for her new show ‘Two Weeks To Live’

Arya vs night king

Game of Thrones will always have a special place in all our hearts. It is a revered TV series for both fans and the crew alike. There has been a tradition in film industry to provide Easter eggs related to a franchise that has made an impact on pop culture. One such Easter egg was spotted in Maisie Williams’ new action-comedy Two Weeks To Live.

A recent clip of one of the episodes revealed a welcome surprise for the fans of Game of Thrones. In that scene, Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Kim is being attacked by an unknown individual. Maisie retaliates in a way that was reminiscent of her role Arya Stark from Game of Thrones.

Maisie’s character, Kim, attacks back the same way Arya Stark did against the Night King. In Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3, Arya appeared out of nowhere to attack the Night King, played by Vladimir Furdik. The Night King grabs her by the throat, and all hope seems lost. Arya pulls off a surprise move by slipping her dagger to her other hand and stabbing the night king, killing him.

Maisie Williams

In the TV series Two Weeks To Live, Maisie pulls off a similar stunt. It was a subtle nod to a tribute to her former role. As Kim, she stands back to her attacker by slipping a glass bottle to her other hand, and smashing it on his head.

The scene was definitely a wow moment for her fans. It was also a chance for the actress to relive her time as Arya. What do you think about the show? Tell us in the comments below.
