In 2022, Lagavulin introduced the Offerman Edition #3 Charred Oak Cask Finish, an 11-year-old single malt whisky that has been aged in a combination of European and American oak casks. These casks are meticulously shaved down and thickly re-charred, resulting in an intensely woody flavor profile that promises an unparalleled sipping experience.
The whisky's aroma is richly infused with layers of smoke, ash, and the salty scent of the sea, creating a lavish sensory experience. On the palate, it is thick and creamy with warm pepper notes and more smoke, complemented by hints of caramel, citrus, and sweet vanilla. The finish is a delightful splash of licorice dipped in caramel, leaving a lingering desire for more.
Bottled at a robust 46% ABV, this collectible single malt whisky represents another successful collaboration between the iconic Lagavulin distillery and acclaimed actor Nick Offerman. The Offerman Edition #3 Charred Oak Cask Finish is a testament to their shared dedication to excellence and craftsmanship, and a must-try for whisky enthusiasts seeking a bold and distinctive flavor.
