Lagavulin 11 Year Old "Offerman Edition" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Previously $120)

SKU #1446530 Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Saline, smoke, seaweed, and iodine mingle with biscuity shortbread, lemon, bubble gum, bright berry fruit, and wafting floral aromas. The palate glides silkily from lemon, orange, and soapy-floral flavors to almonds, hazelnuts, drying oak, and hints of ginger, with peat smoke and salt weaving throughout. Sweet, then bitter on the finish, showcasing cigar ash, leather, and polished oak. Actor Nick Offerman, who collaborated with the distillery on this single malt, could hardly be described as reticent, but his whisky has a sweet shyness that works well in the glass. (SSB, Spring 2020) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

There's been a wave of media collaborations in the booze business, but none as natural as the union of Mr. Offerman and this venerated Islay distillery. The actor is best known for his work on the hit show, Parks and Recreations, where Offerman portrays Ron Swanson -Pawnee, ID's staunchly libertarian Director of Parks & Recreations. Swanson is a living irony and has become a caricature of American masculinity. His defining traits, a love of woodworking, rare steak and Lagavulin. Any true fan of Parks and Recreation likely owns a bottle of this lovely special edition from the south shore legend, but many Lagavulin fans have yet to experience this exceptional expression due to the initial high cost of admission. Thankfully, we've been able to the secure a much more reasonable price, nearly 40% off the release price. If you're a Lagavulin lover in the slightest, discard all cynicism. This unique Lagavulin fits perfectly in style between the rugged smokiness of the well loved 8 year expression and the undeniably complex 16 year. With the cost of 16-year-old expression skyrocketing, the unprecedented price retreat of this lovely expression sets a new benchmark for value in the Islay category. Aged in ex-bourbon and "rejuvenated" bourbon barrels. That's shave, toasted, and rechar, which other distilleries on Islay have been touting opening now. A nose of smoldering smoke, poached pears, moist pipe tobacco, pure cocoa, candied orange peel and crème brûlée. The sweet oily character of Lagavulin is on display and that utterly unique smoke unlike any other Islay. Some subtle ocean quality, but not brine. Add some sweet stewed fruit and a pleasant toasty quality and you've got a recipe for top notch Islay, finally priced right.
