Distillery Notes:

Every year has its whisky highlights and since 2019, Lagavulin's Offerman series with TV star Nick Offerman, who plays the role of meat and whisky lover Ron Swanson in the cult series "Parks and Recreation", has definitely been one of them. The new Lagavulin Offerman 11 Year Old 2024 Caribbean Rum Cask Finish Edition now continues the successful series.

As an homage to the actor, the Lagavulin 11 Year Old Offerman Edition stirred the whisky world all the way to San Francisco where two releases won gold. The 4th edition, "Caribbean Rum Cask Finish", continues the successful series and combines the intensely peaty character of the "King of Islay" with soft, fruity, and exotic flavour nuances typical of a Caribbean Rum Cask Finish. It goes without saying that this whisky will delight both collectors and connoisseurs alike.

"I have travelled the world and sampled many attempts at pleasing nectars, but it is solely this distillation of Islay; a tiny, charismatic Scottish island, that has claimed my palate. Yea, and my heart into the bargain." — Nick Offerman

Tasting Notes:

Hints of vanilla, red berries, sea salt brine and Lagavulin's signature peat smoke

Awards/Reviews: 

Double Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2022

"Notes of honey and brown sugar on the nose, and surprisingly little smoke upon this initial introduction. That honey continues on the journey to the palate, but then vanilla, heavy peat, spiced dried fruit and pecan join the party as well. No doubt this is a significantly smoky whisky, and said to be the most heavily peated in Offerman’s trio of bottles, but it’s far from the smokiest whisky I’ve tried (not a bad thing by any means) and has some nice complexity to it. You need not be an Offerman fan to enjoy this bottle, just an enthusiast of well-crafted, peated Islay scotch." - Robb Report

"A great whisky in its own right that can stand proudly alongside Lagavulin’s other expressions. Nose: Bright fruits like green apple and hints of citrus dominate, accompanied by campfire smoke and salty sea air. Palate: Whereas the 16-year-old has darker red-apple notes, the Offerman comes on bright and slightly tart, with lots of green apple and peach. Medicinal notes, a hallmark of Islay whiskies, creep in midpalate, quickly giving way to dry oak and campfire smoke. The mouthfeel is rich and buttery. Finish: Long and lingering, with cereal notes from the barley and light smoke predominating; more subtle than the 16-year-old. A little water opens up the flavors a bit, but it’s not at all necessary since the finish is practically burn-free when taken neat. It’s almost a shame to use a whisky this good in a cocktail, let alone as a secondary ingredient, but it does work very well in a Penicillin, which calls for a float of peaty scotch. This one, however, deserves to be savored solo in a glass, where all of its complexity can come through unencumbered. For fans of Islay malts, this is a must, another masterpiece from a great distillery. And for the peat-curious, this would be a good place to start." - Liquor.com
