Talk about fiction becoming reality. If you have watched the TV show Parks and Recreation, you would remember Nick Offerman’s tough and manly character, Ron Swanson. In the show, Ron Swanson can be seen having Lagavulin whisky many times. He even visits Scotland goes to a Lagavulin distillery.
Scottish distiller Lagavulin couldn’t have asked for a better partner, as they are finally coming up with a new single malt for the legendary Ron Swanson. The Lagavulin Offerman Edition Aged 11 Years. This whisky contains a strong flavour profile with extra spices and notes of dried fruits that seasoned lovers and connoisseurs of whisky such as Ron Swanson would love. “The whisky offers a full-on tingle from the split second it hits your lips, with pronounced fresh berry character combined with spiciness. Elevated top-notes provide a more direct flavor journey than other Lagavulin expressions,” said the description of this drink.
Offerman took an active role in designing the labels, which feature him in a manly beard, and have a quote that says: “I have traveled the world and sampled many attempts at pleasing nectars, but it is solely this distillation of Islay; a tiny, charismatic Scottish isle, that has claimed my palate. Yea, and my heart into the bargain.”
This whisky is a limited edition, just like Ron Swanson would have liked. It’s only available in a select number of stores in the USA, beginning October 2019, for a price of $74.99. If you can’t find a store near you, you can pre-order the drink here to receive it by November, for $89.99
