If I say "youngest elder brother", I wish to refer to that elder brother of mine who is younger than all other siblings but elder than me. Is it the correct way to express?

    The clearest way to say this is probably "the youngest of my older brothers". However you would still get people looking at you with blank expressions as it's not a common expression. – BoldBen Nov 20 '18 at 11:48

"youngest elder brother" is not correct usage as youngest means the smallest of all and as you are smallest it should be simply "elder brother".
