The last time we reviewed a Lagavulin was back in mid-December when we discussed their 8 year old expression. In that video, we discussed how we were curious to try one of the Nick Offerman editions, as we’re both big fans of his work, but were unable to find it at that time.
As luck would have it, we were able to secure a Nick Offerman edition Lagavulin, so that’s what we’ll be discussing on today’s video. To be more specific, we’ll be discussing the 11 Year Old Offerman Edition which also has the words Charred Oak Cask in its name.
Here are more than a few words about this whisky taken directly from the Lagavulin website:
“There is a saying that “Good Things Come in Threes”. “The rule of three” (or if Latin is preferred “omne trium perfectum” suggests things that come in threes are inherently more humorous, satisfying and effective than any other number of things. There is no better illustration of this than in the new release from Lagavulin and Nick Offerman.
Nick is a lover of all things wood, Lagavulin and steak. By combining these three passions, a most delectable and exceptional whisky is born. Introducing Lagavulin Offerman Edition: Charred Oak Cask. This 11 year old Single malt Scotch Whisky has been aged in heavily charred ex-bourbon and ex-red wine casks creating the perfect whisky to accompany any medium-rare steak. With hints of vanilla, red berries, sea salt brine and Lagavulin’s signature smoke, this whisky not only shines on its own, but highlights and accentuates those perfect steak flavours.
Best enjoyed neat or on the rocks – ideally alongside a perfectly cooked steak.”
