Laphroaig Brodir Port Wood Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$199. 00 Bottle
$2388.00 Dozen
ABV: 48%
Launched in 2014 as a European Travel Exclusive and bottled at 48%, this NAS (No Age Statement Laphroaig) follows on from other successful duty free only bottlings including Laphroaig QA Cask, PX Cask and Laphroaig An Cuan Mór. The first Laphroaig Brodir 13 year old was introduced in 2012 at the Viking Line Whisky Fair. The whisky is matured in ex-Bourbon barrels followed by a second maturation in European oak casks seasoned with Ruby Port. The combination doesn't always fire, however in this case, the peat and sweet fortified wine are reported to have worked extremely well.

Brodir means ‘brother’ in ancient Norse. This label celebrates Scotland’s connection with the Nordic region and culture.

Other reviews... Probably one of the most old-fashioned Islay warehouse aromas I have ever encountered; that incomparable mix of smoke, oak and grape hanging thickly in a moist salty air...this is a big Laphroaig at its most brooding and taciturn. Not for when you are at your most frivolous. 48% Alc./Vol. 91.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2020
