Insider knowledge: Longrow CV whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Longrow CV whiskey, as opposed to 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.
Quite nice and got even better after I had it a few times. Great balance.

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.

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...

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.
