Unless you’re drinking a single cask bottling, every whisky you drink has been prepared by a team of blenders. That goes for single malts, too, and Stewart Morrison is the blender behind Lagavulin’s latest release: the Offerman Edition Charred Oak. Morrison teamed up with actor and Lagavulin lover Nick Offerman to create the third release in the Offerman Edition series, and he’ll join us on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, Islay’s distilleries may soon run short of peated malt supplies to meet the island’s growing demand, while U.S. whisky exports are rising following the removal of European and UK tariffs.
