What's in a name? Longrow CV whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Longrow CV whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Smoke, cut fennel, spearmint, grass. Peat, touch of the coast.
Palate: Spicy, peaty, hints of lemon zest, cutting lime, toffee, lots of oily smoke.
Finish: Long, peaty, spicy oak driven finish.
this is a great whisky... i asked the chap in the store what a nice alternative to caol isla would be and was very pleased by this. at first it has a real bite to it but when left in the glass it becomes better and better. highly reccomended.

Imagine you had your old regular 10 yo Springbank, a tad softened & "peatened" and as softly & subtly as the best Talisker, add a touch of Ardmore or young Caol Ila and you get this...Very well crafted & balanced...

Drinking the CV was my first experience with a peated whisky. But what a experience! So smooth and gentle...
I'll recommend everbody this one.
