Nose: Salt and a leathery smokiness come to the fore in a maritime combination, like a Harbourmaster's Jacket.
Palate: Light and sweet with notes of green grapes and rhubarb, a great contrast to the nose. Then comes a big blast of smoke.
Finish: That salty smokiness returns from the nose providing a deeply satisfying ending.
Overall: A great entry-level offering from Longrow perfect for Islay fans looking for something a bit different.

These are not the bottles you're looking for.
It's young, has a pretty good finish, nice peat, and a small bite. I'm comparing it to my all time favorite, Lagavulin 16, and I'm wondering what their higher-end scotches are like.

You wont like this, these are not the bottles you're looking for*. Move along now.

Tasting notes are spot on. Great whisky, smooth and very drinkable neat. Best dram you never heard of!

I got this as a christams present from my dad after he went up to Scotland recently. We both love whisky and try to get each other something a bit different every year. I have seen and heard of Longrow before but have never ventured out to trying it and I wish I had sooner. It is a fantastic dram and the guy above me has described it spot on. I love the fruity, spicy, coastal and peatyness of this dram and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I will certainly be tasting as few more Campbeltown whisky's very soon.

Very disregarded by Islay-philes, this dram, after all, shares some DNA with the legendary Longrow CV. I have this bottle and now, with some air, it is just delightful. The notes from M.o.M are very accurate, the leather note is prominent on the nose with kippers, algae, natural caramel toffee. That rhubarb/green grape note makes the palate very tangy and juicy, alongside the punchy peat and smoke combo. Great offering!

A very nice introductory peated malt. Extremely smooth with a hint of spice at first. It finishes with a wonderful smokiness which lingers in the mouth for a while after. Strong but manageable having it on its own, but adding a few drops of water opens it up and smooths it out.
