Scottish Single Malt distillery Lagavulin has yet again teamed up with US actor Nick Offerman, this time launching an 11-year-old whisky finished in Guinness beer casks.
Ahead of World Whisky Day (15 May) & Father’s Day (20 June – US & UK), the limited-edition 11-year-old Lagavulin Offerman Edition. was aged for four months in former Guinness beer casks from Ireland’s Open Gate Brewery.
The expression has notes of ‘intense peat and charred wood’ along with hints of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and caramel from the Guinness casks.
To celebrate its launch, Offerman has unveiled the fifth instalment in his Lavagulin: My Tales of Whisky video series.
Titled ‘Nick Offerman’s Father’s Day Part Five’, the new video stars Offerman and his father Ric, and playfully highlights how the whisky was created before concluding with the duo enjoying a dram in a pub.
“The opportunity to collaborate on this truly sublime, smoky giggle-juice renews my gratitude for the simple things in life, like a father’s love, and the good manners he taught me,” said Offerman.
Lagavulin Offerman Edition: Guinness Cask Finish is available in the US, through Reserve Bar and Drizly.
