Lagavulin Offerman Edition, Aged 11 years

 

Nick Offerman is best known for his role on the show Parks and Recreation, but he’s also long been a fan and advocate of Lagavulin, the peaty single malt from the small island of Islay. This limited edition bottle is a collaboration between Offerman and his favorite brand, an 11-year-old blend of Islay single malt from ex-bourbon filled a rejuvenated bourbon casks. Bottled at 92-proof, this beauty was hand-selected by Offerman and Lagavulin Distillery Manager Colin Gordon.


It is more youthful than typical Lagavulin releases, which hear makes for a zippier and brighter spirit with more robust peat smoke on the nose and finish. It still has the creamy mouthfeel Lagavulin is known for, but is a jasper and brighter rendition. 



“I have traveled 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 my palate. Yea, and my heart into the bargain.”
- Nick Offerman



Trivia #1: Offerman’s character on Parks and Rec, Ron Swanson, is frequently seen with a bottle of Lagavulin, his whisky of choice. (Swanson’s father apparently favored Wild Turkey; Ron once says that he would put it on his corn flakes.) In the season 6 episode “London: Part 2,” Ron’s colleague, Leslie Knope, sends him on a surprise trip to Islay, where he hangs out with workers at Lagavulin Distillery, including warehouseman Iain “Pinky” McArthur, and pulls samples straight from the cask. In the final episode of Parks and Rec, Swanson diversifies his portfolio by purchasing a 51% stake in the distillery.


Trivia #2: Offerman himself is actually quite the Lagavulin fan; in fact, Swanson’s characteristic love of the whisky apparently came at Offerman’s suggestion during the show’s development. Over the last several years, the actor has filmed promotional material for the brand that typically features him sitting silently, occasionally sipping whisky from a glass, for minutes or hours on end.  Our favorite video is of him sitting in front of a Yule Log quietly sipping Lagavulin for around 45 minutes straight. Pure bliss.
