Peated Single Malt
Laphroaig // Islay, Scotland
Initially launched as a Travel Retail exclusive, the Brodir continues Master Distiller John Campbell's experimentation with cask-finishing along side the Laphroaig QA Cask (new American oak), the Quarter Cask (reshaped ex-Bourbon), the PX Cask (ex-Pedro Ximinez sherry), and the An Cuan Mor (European oak). The Brodir (meaning "brother" in Norse) celebrates Islay's connection to the Norwegian peninsula. Primarily aged in ex-bourbon, the whisky is finished in ruby-port seasoned casks before being bottled at 48% ABV. Note: This is not currently available in the U.S.

"Starting with a nose that smacks of smoke, brine, and strawberry, the Brodir's first impression calls to mind the image of a beach-side picnic. The initial taste is fruity with a delicious slow smoke. Rich creaminess brings sweet peat to the tongue with a hint of clove and lovely spice. This whisky is playfully delicious; especially fitting for a port and peat lover."
