Lagavulin’s collaborations with actor Nick Offerman have become the most highly anticipated celebrity whisky drops out there.
This release, Lagavulin Offerman Edition Charred Oak Cask, is bottled at 92 proof. The label feature the same quote from Offerman that has appeared on the two previous releases: “I have travelled the world and sampled many attempts at pleasing nectars, but it is solely this distillation of Islay; a tiny charismatic Scottish isle, that has claimed by palate. Yea, and my heart into the bargain.”
Nick Offerman's Tasting Notes:
"...some peat, chocolate, and treacle on the nose, with a hint of red berry and a creaminess that just waves hello in passing. The berry notes, however, pull up a chair in the mouth, complemented by pungent, peaty, woody, and spicy tones on the palate, inferring a pleasing chocolaty sensibility. One could argue that the glowing, lingering, spicy, and simply sensational finish is precisely the pinnacle of what human evolution was leading up to this entire time. It’s like a mouthful of Scottish poetry, pairing superbly with the steak, obviously, but I aver you’ll find it just as pleasing with any of the Seven Delicious foods."
