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.
Royal Lochnagar also enjoys royal connection, having held a Royal Warrant, first awarded by Queen Victoria, since 1848. 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.
A light amber colour of this single malt echoes the light and delicate aromas of this 12-year-old Royal Lochnagar. It starts with gentle oak aromas that develop into sweeter caramel tones with a fruity edge. When you taste it there are immediate sweet layers of vanilla and liquorice, which blend into a gentle finish of nutmeg and sweet pastries.
