Everyone celebrates the holidays in their own way, so it’s hard to argue that there’s a “right” way to do it. But if there is, Nick Offerman’s got it down. In the latest installment of his “My Tales of Whisky” web series, Offerman opted to take the simplest approach possible and enjoy one of life’s great pleasures: a glass of whisky by a roaring fire.
There are no gimmicks in “Nick Offerman’s Yule Log,” no comedy tricks or Easter eggs or advertisements (unless you count the Lagavulin 16 he’s drinking, which is an excellent choice if I do say so myself). Just a glorious, bearded gentleman sitting comfortably in a deep leather chair, quietly sipping his whisky for 45 minutes and occasionally uttering a contented sigh. He barely even moves, except when he needs a refill.
Thank you, Nick Offerman, for showing us what Christmas is all about.
