Lagavulin 11-Year Offerman Edition

What are two of my favorite things during the winter? Peaty whiskies and a wonderful warming fire, so yes I can play Nick Offerman’s ‘Yule Log‘ while drinking Lagavulin over and over again since, well… I don’t actually have a fireplace. Lagavulin happens to be Offerman’s favorite whisky. He also starred as scotch-loving Ron Swanson…

Tormore 14-Year 2002 Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection

Amazingly enough Tormore is a distillery I’ve never written about. This Speyside distillery was built in 1958 and sits on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park.
