Glorious elixir honoring the Night's Watch.

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.

In a dark and opaque bottle comes a potion from the bleak border, distilled in the Oban Distillery which sits in the shadow of a steep cliff on the frontier between the west Highlands and the Islands of Scotland. The Night's Watch Oban Bay Reserve is rich and wintery with a balanced spicy and woody dryness perfect for those vigils in Castle Black. The ancient rule commands you to read the vow of the Night's Watch, written on the back of the bottle. Be the sword in the darkness and may this Single Malt Scotch Whisky be at your side.

Joshua,
Goes down smooth with a strong smokey finish. Great for sipping.
 
Jason
Jason,
Really well balance with good peat. A little nice sweetness and a long finish as well. Very drinkable.
 
Tammy
Tammy,
Nice and strong. Way better than JW white walker.
 
Egan
Egan,
Smooth, bold but not overbearing, flavorful, and with a light smokiness reminiscent of a fire you and your brothers would gather round while toasting the Watch, this is absolutely wonderful for sipping and exactly what I look for in a scotch. I’d swear an oath on my sword to protect this stuff.
 
Richard
Richard,
Slow sipping neat. Nothing else required. Smooth, woody, full flavored. A home run!
 
Mahyad
Mahyad,
Great bottle of Oban. Very smoky flavor. Would go great with a Cigar.
 
Tim
Tim,
I love the smokiness! I'm relatively new to the world of scotch, so take this with a grain of salt, but this is my favorite thus far.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Rich nose and mouth full of stone fruit and rich wood with a little spicy, smokey complexity to keep you on your toes. Without that smoke and spice it might be too sweet or heavy but there's a really fine balance here that I really appreciate.

Nice dark fruit and salty on the nose. Taste is initially salty, caramel and apple, with a little cherry on the finish. Very smooth, easy drinker. Not as good with water added, made it kind of one dimensional
 
Earl
Earl,
Dark, compared to Oban 14. Heavier. Smokier. There's the briny taste of the sea mingled in with spice and the slightest hint of citrus rind. I've bought four bottles of this stuff and I'm still learning more about it with every dram.

Michael,
Nose: sweetish and citrus Palate: Interesting not smoky but some wood. Spicy finish. Growing on me.

Too Smoky for my taste
 
Todd
Todd,
The aroma has salt and sea present, with some fruit and citrus in the background along with a touch of smoke. Taste is interesting, with floral and salt coming through. A dash of water seems to bring out some sweetness for me. Overall this one is quite good, though I think I liked the Talisker GoT a bit more.

Robert,
Sweet stuff. I’m glad I didn’t need to “take the black” to get some of this. A little smoky with honey and orange. Drank it while having some dark chocolate. Great combination.
 
Alex
Alex,
The spice reigns supreme and it’s sure to warm you up on a cold night beyond the wall. The bite that comes with the spice is complimented by the sweetness and fruity notes. Another excellent Game of Thrones one!
 
Gary
Gary,
outstanding.
 
Erik
Erik,
A little disappointed with this one. IMO, doesn’t compare to Oban 14. This is one to show off to people, but not something I’d drink everyday...
 
Duane
Duane,
I've been chasing this one down for a while now. Glad yo have it, but, the price jump is crazy! Oban did the Watch proud. Best bottle of the set IMO. Hard to pin down the tasting notes. Wonder malt character carries this dram to a long finish. Great complexity that keeps you coming back for more!
 
Fran
Fran,
Oban-ish bottle with all the spice and a hint of smoke. Quite enjoyable from the first sip. Pleasant surprise.
 
Michael
Michael,
I never had any Oban before and was so hesitant to open this bottle until I obtained another but damn....it met my expectations and then went beyond as well. Looking forward in trying the regular Oban’s.

Awesome bottle and great flavor.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
I normally don't go for gimmicky marketing stuff, but I was very pleasantly surprised. While this doesn't have tons of depth of flavor, it does have an excellent sense of wood and sugar with a touch of fruit and floral. Barely a whisper of smoke or peat. Great for the price, but nothing game changing.
 
Heather
Heather,
Unexpected pleasure. I’m not typically an Oban kind of girl, but found this to be beautiful from start to finish. Warm and complex and the orange peel note really comes through.
 
Jasson
Jasson,
The 6th of the series that I've managed to track down. And what a treat it is... Quite flavorful on the tongue with a rich blast of caramel. Some 'blink-and-you-miss-it' smoke, followed by a warm finish you'll recognize if you normally enjoy Oban. This is definitely my favorite of the series thus far. Still have to find those other two pesky, elusive houses...
