THEATRES STORES NEAR YOU] Wednesday, October 12th, 2022 – From Hollywood blockbusters to balanced dinner plates (steak with two sides, of course) to trilogies of limited edition whisky releases in partnership with an iconic actor/author/woodworker, good things come in threes. For Nick Offerman, the rule of thirds is resoundingly true as he introduces his third Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Charred Oak Cask Aged 11 Years. An aficionado of all things wood, steak and scotch, Nick Offerman merged these three passions within his smokiest creation yet, a whisky aged in American and European oak casks that are shaved down then heavily re-charred, posing the perfect pairing for well-barked, medium-rare steak. Marking the longtime collaborators’ 48th video spot together, Offerman and Lagavulin debuted this one-of-a-kind whisky in a thrilling, action-packed film that reveals Offerman embarking on his most dangerous Tale of Whisky to date: Nick Offerman’s Smokiest Adventure Yet: Lagavulin Offerman Edition: Charred Oak Cask.
The video follows one whisky-loving man on a quest to bring the delicious pairing of steak and Lagavulin to mankind before it is lost forever. He’ll stop at nothing to
save the world make sure the smokiest, most steak-friendly Offerman Edition Scotch in existence is available to whisky-lovers everywhere. The tale unveils the epic lengths to which Offerman will go to protect the new Charred Oak Cask edition, the ultimate accompaniment to high-quality steak. To enjoy this whisky in peak form, Offerman recommends pairing with a perfectly seared cowboy ribeye.
“Believe me, if there was any way to bring the world this exclusive batch of superlative scotch without repeatedly defying death, I’d say sign me up. Pull me up a comfy chair,” said Nick Offerman of his creation of the new liquid. “But we all know that’s not the world we’re living in. Your mission, if you have the guts to accept it, is to pair this new Offerman Edition with an exquisite steak and a mug of action. You won’t be sorry…if you survive the pleasure.”
