A classic, throaty, savory Islay Single Malt worth the dram that makes a dream come true.

Lagavulin is one of the most famous Islay Single Malts and the top produced by Diageo. The Lugavulin Distillery was founded by John Johnston and Archibald Campbell in 1816, but records show that illegal distilling had been taking place on the same site as far back as 1742. It sits on a natural harbor on the south shore of Islay about half-way between Laphroaig and Ardbeg. It’s core offering — the sixteen-year-old — won an unprecedented four consecutive double-gold medals followed by three Single Golds at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Did you ever watch the TV show Parks and Recreation? Well, Nick Offerman is the actor who played the character Ron Swanson in that series. A running theme was the character’s love of Lagavulin Single Malt. Well, Offerman is getting a dream come true.

It seems that the association generated a lot of attention for the Whisky and the distillery. In response, Lagavulin 11 Year Old Nick Offerman Edition is the distillery’s tribute to the actor AND the character. The casks used were selected my Offerman himself along with distillery manager Colin Gordon. It is Lagavulin’s core Single Malt Spirit aged eleven years in a combination of refill and rejuvenated Bourbon casks. And it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.


Smartass Corner:
The character "Ron Swanson" and his love of Lagavulin Single Malt was inspired by the actor’s personal affinity for the dram. It is where the art of acting, the craftsmanship of exceptional Single Malt, and real life meet. It is the actor’s image — not the character’s — that appears on the label.

ERIC
ERIC,
Amazing! Great balance of pronounced smoke/peat and overall smoothness.
 
guest
guest,
Loved it! strong woody.
 
Scott
Scott,
Very tasty. Very similar smokiness to the 16 year, with some slight differences. If you like any other Lagavulin, or smoky scotch in general, this will be delicious.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Wow!
 
David
David,
Been looking for this for awhile now and finally got it. This is for sure a one glass max during one day. It's very peaty and delish.
 
SCOTT
SCOTT,
Definitely getting caramel and spice. Cinnamon also. Very good.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Just amazing. I love this scotch, almost afraid to drink it because I don't want to run out... almost
 
Isak
Isak,
I couldn’t help but compare this to the 16 every time I tried it, and to be honest, it just tasted like a less interesting 16 year. Still has that great golden Lagavulin body, but a little more savory, meaty finish. Still a wonderful scotch, and it absolutely belongs in the Lagavulin line. Even with my slight disappointment, Nick Offerman would be proud.

Antione,
Loved this and not just because of the show, I didn’t even watch it. Smoky and tasty my perfect scotch.

Definitely worth every penny.
 
Ray
Ray,
Heavy peat and spice, a dash of water opens up some dark chocolate and pie notes.
 
Jessica
Jessica,
Delicious, sweeter than the 16, with all the smoke you expect.
 
Isak
Isak,
Honestly not as good as their standard 16 year, but still a wonderful dram from a legendary distillery. A little more savory, and a little more simple. Smokey at the beginning and end.
 
Sam
Sam,
Probably my favorite scotch. Love the nose and how it changes over about 30 seconds. Taste is a nice smokey rush but with some good sweet notes at the end
 
Jason
Jason,
Peaty and delicious as you would expect. It's the perfect thing to drink when daydreaming about spending a day in Nick Offerman's wood shop.

Rowby,
My first entry into Lagavulin, co-branded by the man who made me aware of the name "Lagavulin". I assure no bias in saying that I enjoy the overall nuanced aromas as well as the complex flavor profile from this rendition of Lagavulin. Upfront there is a very pronounced peatiness that lingers til mid-palette, where it smoothens out to some nice molasses and apple reserves—maybe even mint. Being aged for only 11, compared to 16 years, there is a mild brightness that I enjoy. Cheers to you Ron Swanson.
 
Todd
Todd,
Aroma is similar to other Lagavulins, maybe a little less smoke, but still present along with peat and and maybe some vanilla, pepper, and sea salt. The taste has the smoke and peaty flavor, there is a good bit of pepper present as well, and maybe some wood. A dash of water seems to bring in some sweetness and tames the pepper a bit. The verdict is that this is different enough to add to the collection of Lagavulin Scotch Whiskies on the shelf, and pretty darn good overall.
 
Michael
Michael,
Great bottle from the masters at Lagavulin, you know it’s a Lagavulin, but it’s a special blessing of flavor and smoke, with the peat hitting you on the back end. Brilliant!
 
Eric
Eric,
Green apple, white oak, peat smoke. Very pleasant.
 
Michael
Michael,
Another great lagavulin....very smooth and fruity with a little less smoke than usual
 
Christopher
Christopher,
If you like Islay whisky, and Lagavulin in particular, you’ll love the Offerman edition. It’s not as mellow as the 16, being aged 11 years, but that little extra bite makes all the difference.
 
William
William,
Definitely a favorite. Smoky and flavorful
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is a dark amber. Nose initially consists of leather and peat. Further nosing reveals a distant spiciness. The first sip is earthy, with a light smoky/peaty flavor, with a mild underlying sweetness. Mouthfeel is light, but not in a bad way. Additional sips reveal subtle dried fruit and the distant spice from the nose. Notes of tobacco (cigar smoke?) get revealed later in the glass. The finish is moderate in length, consisting of lingering earthy peat, mild spice, and a mild nuttiness. Not much Scotch experience to compare to, but overall this is excellent.
