Excerpt: However, it feels familiar all at the same time. For me, the Lagavulin Offerman Edition is everything I want in a scotch all in one bottle. I hope it sticks around, and I hope for more collaborations between Lagavulin and Nick Offerman. Now go get yourself some, I promise you're gonna enjoy it.
Excerpt: Say what you will about celebrity-styled bottlings, but with this unique release someone knew what they were doing, and for drinkers with even a passing interest in Islay I’d categorically recommend snapping up a bottle tout suite.
Excerpt: Things get sweeter the longer you get to know the spirit. The ginger, almond, spearmint, vanilla and carob baking powder jumped out after several drams seriously mulled over. I like it better than Laga 16.

Distilled by Lagavulin, aged for 11 years and finished in a Guinness beer cask, this brand new release comes to us as part of the "Offerman Edition" line of Limited Edition bottlings in a collaboration between Nick Offerman & Lagavulin.
Bright and peaty on the nose with malty, lemon curd and cocoa.
Moderate mouthfeel, lovely malt, caramel, praline, lemon curd and light medicinal peat to it.
Long complex finish with tons of stout, caramel, turtle candy character. Enjoyably complex, sweet, full bodied.
This is an easy buy over the Lagavulin 16yr any day. Great character, tons of bold flavor with the Guinness cask showing just a touch - not overwhelming or bold beer character blends expertly. It's hard to find a celebrity branded bottling across any spirits category that's worthwhile, but Nick Offerman and Lagavulin should be proud of this masterpiece.
