Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig Brodir

30 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind, I could probably have tapped on a Bowmore Darkest here. For Laphroaig rather untypical, for lovers of sweet smoke but just right.
    • Nose
      Smoky and sweet. At the beginning you look for the Laphoaig - and do not find it at first. The otherwise phenolic nose is clearly suppressed by the Port Wood. Dark berries and raisins. The smoke is mild and disappears after a while. Sea salt, damp-loamy soil.
    • Taste
      On the tongue one recognizes the origin: phenolic, smoky, salty. Then come the dark berries from the nose, red grapes, raisins and figs, he glides into total sweetness. Fine-sour chocolate and oak spice press on the surface, slightly bitter herbs come.
    • Finish
      Long and dry.

    Very soft

  4. Malthead19 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    - a good NAS whisky with a lot of smoke,
    - unfortunately not as good as Batch 1, but something for it
    better than the BRODIR (2018, without batch information)
    - but unfortunately for the price
    disappointing (too little fruit flavors, much in the
    Smoke "suffocated")
    => don't get me wrong, I like smoke, but here
    the harmonious combination was missing
    • Nose
      heavy smoke, campfire, some fruit, herbs
    • Taste
      strong smoky appearance, lots of smoke aroma, ash, looks young and overloaded with smoke, oak, coal
    • Finish
      medium-long, strong finish;
      long very smoky aftertaste

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Brother-2 turned out to be more attractive than the first part, if in the aroma everything is more or less at the level of the first, then the taste / finish is much richer, denser, there is life, energy, with the same, rather poor, set of derivatives we managed to get a whole and original product.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, dried boards, peat, a bathhouse, charred branches, coal, the port's influence is almost not felt, something raisin-like in the background.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, tart oak, peat, smoke, sweet wine notes, berry compote, mountain ash, viburnum, ginger, sharp ash-metal shades
    • Finish
      Spicy, rather refreshing than warming, sweet peaty with sharp mineral-metallic notes, berry jam, mountain ash and wine notes, charred branches, charcoal.

  6. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    hmmm from the smoke OK, but he did not blow me away
    absolutely solid malt
    • Nose
      minimal smoke, leather, tobacco, sweet, heavy, slightly vanilla is more
      with water: Cola Haribobar, sweeter
    • Taste
      soft on the palate
      minimal smoke, sweet
    • Finish
      long, sticking to the tongue
      bitter, minimal smoke, so tart towards tobacco

  7. schengel10 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    BRODIR Batch 2 - also an interesting and good malt - in the direct comparison with Batch 1 a bit gruff, less balanced.
    Young, intense, pleasant smoke flavors, liter bottle - but with about 95.00 € me too expensive!
    • Nose
      81 81
      Fruits, berries, harmonic smoke, sweetness, honey, herbs;
    • Taste
      82 82
      voluminous onset, smoky, fruity (berries, port wine (?)), salty, oily body, herbs, charcoal, ash, pepper, oak;
    • Finish
      80 80
      medium sweet finish; becoming increasingly dry; Salt, cold ashes;

  8. megabreit scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Light berry note, slightly damp leather, I miss the smoky and phenolic Laphroaignote
    Taste: some fruit, now the smoke is more present than in the nose. He is a bit too alcoholic for me
    Finish: Dry with a slight dusty note
    Conclusion: A rather average bottling. He is too unbalanced for me. My beloved Staubnote in the finish rips it out a bit.
