Lagavulin Offerman 11 Year (Charred Oak Cask Finish) Scotch
Introducing Lagavulin Offerman Edition Charred Oak Cask. Nick is a lover of all things wood, Lagavulin and steak. By combining these three passions, a most delectable and exceptional whisky is born.
They collected charismatic casks of American White Oak, with a few European Oak thrown in for culture, all of which had previously held either scotch or wine. The cask interiors were shaved down and then heavily re-charred before we filled them with our golden 11-year single malt whisky for maturation.
The perfect whisky to accompany any medium-rare steak. With hints of vanilla, red berries, sea salt brine and Lagavulin's signature smoke, this whisky not only shines on its own, but highlights and accentuates those perfect steak flavors.
Carrying on a 200-year-old tradition of distilling excellence, the Lagavulin distillery is said to be one of the oldest distilleries on Islay. Founded in 1816 by farmer John Johnston and later led by Peter Mackie in 1890, the name Lagavulin was to become the last word on the delicacy of Islay malts. Miles and miles of peat bog in the west of the island provide the raw material which imbues the barley with our iconic smoky flavor, and the rich peaty water from the tranquil Lochan Sholum in the hills above the distillery makes the flavors so unique. It takes time, but patience is our finest virtue and rushing good whisky is just not how we take care of things in Islay.
