Lagavulin Offerman Edition Charred Oak Cask 11 year old
Need to know:
The third limited-edition whisky from actor Nick Offerman and Lagavulin is aged in American and European oak casks that are shaved down and then heavily re-charred. It is meant to pair perfectly with a medium-rare steak.
Whisky Advocate says:
The years-long collaboration with Lagavulin traces back to Offerman’s “Parks & Recreation” character Ron Swanson. As Offerman tells it, Lagavulin was his favorite scotch at the time, while “Parks & Rec” creator Mike Schur was also a fan. When a script called for Swanson to pull out a bottle of scotch, Schur chose Lagavulin, much to Offerman’s delight. Like Swanson, Offerman is a lover of red meat and a skilled woodworker, so this latest release combines those three passions: wood, steak, and scotch. Last year’s Offerman Edition was a Guinness cask-finished 11 year old, a whisky so charming and well-made that we named it the 2021 Whisky of the Year. Now, Offerman and Lagavulin are back with an even bigger production and a whisky that is sure to put smoke and wood front and center.
