Laphroaig Brodir Final Batch

Peaty, Leathery
The Laphroaig Brodir Final Batch is a limited edition, named after the Viking term for "brother", and is the final batch in a series of special bottlings honouring the distillery's heritage and connection to the island's Viking history.
After several batches, this Laphroaig, matured in ex-bourbon casks and finished in a port cask, is now discontinued. The Scotch does not bear an age statement.

The Laphroaig Brodir Final Batch has a complex and layered aroma, with Laphroaig's characteristic phenolic and smoky notes present from the first moment. There is also a slight saltiness, followed by fruit and citrus notes, as well as hints of plums and custard. The aroma is also spicy, with hints of churros and cinnamon sugar.


On the palate, the single malt is bold and full-bodied, with dominant seaweed and iodine notes and a seabed feel. Added to this are flavours of dark fruits, including intense plums and berries, as well as a pleasant and rich smoke. The profile is also rounded off by a spicy honey sweetness.


The finish of the Brodir is expectedly long and smoky, with a lingering fruity sweetness.


Overall, the Laphroaig Brodir Final Batch is an excellent Scotch with a complex and characterful flavour profile that showcases the best of Laphroaig's signature smoky and peaty style. As with any Limited Edition, it may be difficult to snag a bottle, but should you manage to do so at an acceptable price - snap it up!

Rating: 83/100 - Excellent (Marcel: 81 | Sascha: 85)
