The Islay based Lagavulin Distillery, has announced the launch of its fourth limited-edition collaborative bottling with actor Nick Offerman.

Lagavulin Offerman Edition - Caribbean Rum Cask Finish (46% ABV) is an 11 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially matured for eleven years in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks, before being finished for over eight months in ex-Caribbean Rum casks.

Lagavulin launches its latest Nick Offerman release

Inspired by Nick Offerman’s deep-seated affinity for maritime adventure, this latest release is said to combine tasting notes from the Caribbean - a region close to Nick's heart, with the flavours of the southernmost part of Islay in Western Scotland, home of the Lagavulin distillery.

Lagavulin Offerman Edition - Caribbean Rum Cask Finish, is said to deliver notes of smouldering embers, chili pepper, charred citrus peel, freshly baked crème brûlée, lemon cake and maritime brine on the nose. Followed by notes of bonfire smoke, black pepper, lemon, lime, vanilla and a contrasting sweet saltiness on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Nick Offerman, said: "Laboring together with Lagavulin blending master Stuart Morrison, we have landed upon our most delicious, exotic liquid yet. Now to silence the scandal-mongers. There have been many accusations levelled against me regarding my desire to concoct the perfect dram to sit and sip whilst viewing my favourite mermaid musicals, so that I might feel even more fully like a Scottish-Caribbean underwater siren-princess. To these scurrilous abusers I have only this to say: what I do in my own time, whether under the sea or above it, is nobody's business but my own. Slàinte mhath."

Lagavulin Offerman Edition - Caribbean Rum Cask Finish, is now available from for a RRP of £90.00.
