Fire and Bloody Hell This Scotch Is Fantastic.

Winter is coming once again and this time it's the final countdown to the war between Westeros and those pesky ice-zombies. To alleviate the period of waiting, HBO teamed up with DIAGEO, forged eight rare Scotches and paired them with the royal Houses of Westeros. Each bottle tells a wonderful story about one of the Seven Kingdoms and each has a character so unique, we're afraid the Writer might kill it off. It's time to bring some medieval intrigue to your home bar and hum the intro theme.

A bottle of Cardhu is a descendant of Scotland's own Daenerys, Helen Cumming, who was together with her daughter-in-law Elizabeth a badass Whisky-maker in the industry dominated entirely by men. Fueled by their fierce spirits, they created fiery Spirits that would make the dragons bow. And the lovely toasted characters from hand-picked oak casks is like from a dragon's fire. Celebrate strong and independent women with lizardy weapons of mass destruction by their side, and we shall Khaleesi you by the fireplace with a bottle of Cardhu.

Fun gimmicky name, decent whisky
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Excellent single malt. Smooth finish and a pleasant after taste. Would recommend for those who like a Glennmorangie
 
Tom
Tom,
This is an outstanding Scotch. I hope to get more of it!
 
Chad
Chad,
Not in my top 5, but not bad either. I like to have this one with a bit of water added to mellow it out just a bit
 
NAOMI
NAOMI,
I'm not really a Scotch drinker - but have tried several. This is my favorite thus far... so smooth, and almost creamy caramel sweet... but not overpowering sweet... just subtle and smooth.. I've come back for a 2nd bottle. My husband is the Scotch drinker - he loves it.
 
NAOMI
NAOMI,
Not as favorable as I expected. However, not as rough. either. Spicy and warmer....a bit of honey... good in the fall and winter
 
Heath
Heath,
Nice single malt with a great Carmel Apple bite.
 
Alex
Alex,
Smooth and enjoyable from nose to finish. Red apple, oak, and a nutty finish round it out quite nicely. Would recommend to someone delving into Scotch and not a fan of the peaty and smoky malts.

guest,
Not my favorite scotch. Lot of honey on the nose and the initial palate, but finishes with more spice/clove taste. Adding water brought out a little more apple
 
Caylin
Caylin,
Really enjoyed this bottle for the price. Nice complex flavor, relatively smooth, enjoyed better with 1 ice cube rather than neat.
 
Charles
Charles,
unremarkable but easily drinkable and not a bad price. Have not tried the cardhu 12 at the time of this review. light, red apples and honey with a mild spiced finish. nice for my collection, but wouldn't drink this regularly.
 
Robert
Robert,
Visually- nice amber color Nose- reminds me of a red wine. Definite oak and cherry. Mouth feel is oily. Slight burn, not too much. Not much taste initially with a medicinal aftertaste. Adding water brings out taste but I am not a fan of it. A disappointment.
 
Corey
Corey,
Mellow and light. A really nice casual sipping scotch. Also as a Targaryen myself, I LOVE the bottling.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
This is a really lively scotch - not sticky sweet - it really jumps around. Sweet caramel apples mellowing into smooth honey with a lingering spice and oak finish - just like the picture. I can pummel this whiskey and not feel guilty because its under 50 bucks, even here in NY. Everyone keeps talking about collections; I don't know how you make this last a week, let alone put it on a shelf.

Strong Honey taste, with subtle spice and herbal afternotes. This Scotch is a must to any collection
 
Mark
Mark,
Strong, herbal punch with a biting aftertaste. Definitely taste the oak. Not as sweet as the House Stark selection.

Cardhu never fails me. Very smooth. Not smoky or peaty in my opinion.

Jasson
Jasson,
Love the sweetness on the palette and finish. Took me forever to find a bottle - and may never again... Thanks, Flaviar! I've never tasted Cardhu before, but if this is an indication of their quality - I will definitely be trying other expressions from them. 9/10
