This year Nick sets out for an adventure on the sea. Nick's love for adventures on the water - in a vessel he handcrafted, of course - takes a new shape as he ventures to distant islands to bring the sweet sunshine of the Caribbean to his beloved home by the sea on Islay, combining these island's native nectars: whisky & rum.

Introducing LAGAVULIN OFFERMAN EDITION: CARIBBEAN RUM CASK FINISH

This 11-year-old Lagavulin is finished for 8 months in casks that previously held Caribbean Rum - resulting in a symphony of sweet smoke that pairs the delectable sweet notes of the tropics with the smoldering peaty smoke of the irresistible elixir of Islay

Best enjoyed near the water - either neat or on the rocks.

TASTING NOTES

Nose - Smouldering embers, gentle tarriness. Chili pepper, charred citrus rind, freshly fired crème brûlée, browned butter, tarte au citron. The creaminess is pronounced, but found alongside some distinct top-notes. Hints of cereal and straw. A distinct maritime and brine character, lemon meringue pie. Some subtle aromatics, almost like the texture of blossom honey, found after a few moments in the glass.

Taste - Bonfire smoke, cracked black pepper, tingling chilli, gentle lemon and lime citrus notes, vanilla sweets, a contrasting sweet salinity, brine. The bright and fruity side of salt and smoke. If there was such a thing as salted limes.

Finish - Chili pepper-like, smoky and fruity finish that goes on and on.
