    Brodir is the Old Norse term for brother. The Viking language was spoken on the Orkney and Shetland Islands until the 18th century. Laphroaig's Travel Retail bottling was finished in port wine casks.
    • Nose
      Sweetish aromatic smoke, port wine notes, vanilla, juicy orange, malt notes.
    • Taste
      Strong, sweet and spicy attack, lots of port wine, dark fruit basket, some smoked ham, peppery spiciness, spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Very long finish and sweet, smoky, spicy, slightly drying, notes of port wine and oak spice remain.

    It has that typical Laphroaig nose and taste, which I love. Some port sweetness is definitely noticable, but it's in the background. Although this could've done with some stronger cask influences it's still a very good Laphroaig.

    I just finished my bottle over the course of 9 months and was very disappointed. My bottle was very lackluster and I was expecting a great bottle from all the high reviews I saw here .
    Possibly I got a poor batch.......not sure.

  10. PeatSnatch scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Good Laphroaig but a bit thin. Fortunately, they bottled at 48% and not lower.

    My second bottle L8239 - 225510.52.
    in the 8 months after uncorking, it is no longer as convincing as it used to be. In the meantime it has also become much too expensive!
    • Nose
      89 89
      lots of smoke (medicinal and campfire) grapes, sweetness with vanilla and caramel. Maritime aspects. In addition, a few herbs and orange
    • Taste
      90 90
      ashy, partly medicinal smoke, somewhat dominant. In addition, fiery spice, very warming, but also sweet and creamy at the same time. Vanilla, laramel, liquorice and orange play a role.
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium length, no further discoveries, at the end the ashes dominate

    I'm not a huge fan of Laphroaig's medicinal note myself, although it's not too bad on this one. The nose is interesting and mature, the taste and finish are nothing special.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sawdust-like smoke, black currant, honey and resin and vanilla.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Typical Laphroaig medicinal note. Nice sweet-sour zing along some sweeter fruits and oakiness. Eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium bodied and medium length. Gassy smoke, sour bitter note.

    It is very pleasantly smoky. In connection with its spiciness really nice in the mouth. Unfortunately, I don't like the salty in the whisky and the medical smoke outlet so much. Still has a good balance in general. Overall worth buying and really good!
    • Nose
      87 87
      very pleasant smoky, fruity, slightly sweet, maritime notes, seaweed
    • Taste
      85 85
      lots of smoke, salty, some oak, slightly fruity and sweet
    • Finish
      84 84
      Liquorice, lots of smoke (partly medicinal), salty, slightly peppery, slightly bitter (malt), woody

  21. dhMaki scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      87 87
      Typical Laphroaig smoke, becoming very mild and sweeter. Dark fruits (berries) from Ruby-Port present themselves in the background. When the smoke has dissipated, peaty notes of old seaweed (musty) become noticeable.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A powerful start with tingling European oak barrel spice on the tongue, plus smoke and ash. A bit of sweetness and fruit from dark berries are only added later.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Persistently smoky with spice and a little sweetness. At the end the smoke pulls up the throat again nicely.

    Overall, very complex with laffi smoke, seasoning, liquorice, port wine barrel, berries, fruit, sweetness and later also charcoal / campfire.

    A lapgroaig from the port barrel, unfortunately without age, but with an appealing color. And it meets all expectations!
    • Nose
      87 87
      Slightly maritime smoke, red fruits, forest honey and herbs. Some vanilla and black currants. Very pleasing.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Subtly smoky, red berries, heather honey. The herbs are woven in very well and the alcohol is not stinging despite its 48% vol. Eucalyptus and licorice.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length finish with pleasant herbal honey on the palate. Soft and warm.

  27. emptycask scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    nice but not great, bought it for 60 euro and still feel it's a bit to much for a port finished Nas.

  28. Krisladdich scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A nice Laphroaig with a great nose. Unfortunately, taste and finish can not quite keep the "promise" and fall off a bit. Still a great malt for rainy days, but nothing to spend hours with.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruity sweet, dried plums, red grapes at first. Only then comes the Laphroaig smoke. Typically phenolic, but very restrained beautifully integrated and in beautiful interaction with the sweet fruits. Then some strong honey and very fine Bourbon vanilla. Then a light spice, almost kräutrig. With a little time, the classic maritime salt and algae notes are added. But not exuberant but very mild. Mild is also the alcohol, the 48% are barely noticeable in the nose, but still give enough strength. A nice straight-lined nose. Not super complex, but just nice to sniff.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the beginning then directly the phenol smoke, lies down gently on the palate and surrounds the sweet fruits. The sweetness is almost a bit jammy. The cheeks become moist, while the tongue and the neck area become drier. Some salt and colorful pepper in the mouth. Very spicy, no trace of vanilla and honey. Tasty, but the nose makes me more fun.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The Brodir is indeed quite a long time, but mainly because of the mouthfeel. It remains almost only a little spice and the smoke. At first a bit fruity and sweet, but it wears off very quickly. Again, I would have liked something more. Still not bad.
