This is essentially the awesome Longrow C.V. bottling in new packaging, we're very glad it still features in the re-vamped range! Great value and great tasting!
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.

I found this to be quite a delicate and light whiskey which is perfect for spring and summer evenings sipping, the colour itself is quite pale and with no age statement I assume it's under 10, the aftertaste is smoky, salty. Impressive at a reasonable price point, will likely lead me to try others from the distillery which I guess is the point as their entry level offering...

This is like a happy whisky for when you're having a good day. I think it avoids being harsh, and instead comes across light maybe even effervescent. It has an energy like an early morning on a spring day and tastes like sunlight glinting on dewy blades of grass.

I was looking forward to this particular offering from Campbelltown, and while it is an overall decent dram with some really nice subtleties; it is unfortunately overpowered by a strong harshness. This harshness is not really tamed with the addition of water(something I am not a fan of anyways, I prefer my drams neat), and I’ve even tried letting it breath for a week, as has been suggested by others. Sadly what could be a quite nice dram is overwhelmed by the harshness of its presumable youth.

From a neat pour, this dram was initially bright and hot, but soon settled down to a beautifully rugged expression. The nose was slightly herbal at first, with nautical hints to damp leather, wet rope and sea spray. As it opened up, baked apples, wet hay, and a sweet peaty earthiness emerged. The palate is somewhat thin, but smooth and warming. It carries a tart, peat-kissed, nutty maltiness that plays against a bready, buttery biscuit note. The finish is long and slightly drying, with a hint of mint and smoke - a truly wonderful end to a well-rounded Campbeltown dram. Well done!

Very rarely do I get to try a malt from campbeltown and its a damn shame because they make some fantastic whisky. Only other Campbeltown I've had was springbank 10 which I would say is slightly more well rounded than this but this is smoother and peatier. I love how light it is no color added non chill filtered goodness Springbank doesn't mess around when it comes to whisky. Nice peaty salty maybe slightly herbal dram like what an old sailor probably tastes like. Definitely a fan of this. The Sugarbear

I'm a big fan of islay and this one is incredible. I bought it about 25GBP, for this price and for the lovely peaty springbank it is a must have single malt. Big five star for Longrow, if you like peated whiskys and springbank, go get it!

Despite being a Scot, I was never a great whisky fan until I drank this Longrow. Absolutely stunning! Complex and interesting. Also since the distillary is still independent and not run by a multinational monster each batch is slightly different, and there are changes after opening ovre time. My favourit whisky.

Springbank 12 c/s is my benchmark so I hesitated before buying the longrow peated - after all £40 is a lot for a NAS vatted malt. I've got to say its excellent! slight haze with a teaspoon of water, very light nose, a bit hot (youth?) at first sip and then it unrolls with complex flavours. Very little peat, but well balanced (why is it described as 'heavily peated' because it isn't). Definite would buy again, I just wish they sold a 12 y/o Longrow c/s instead of this youthful number.

I really want to like this but it's just too young and harsh for me. A little water helps but for an NAS malt that tastes this young I think it's overrated.

Quite decent, and the tasting notes are for the most part accurate. This whiskey is rather light in body and somewhat herbal/aromatic, along with a fair bit of grainy buttery sort of sweetness. The peat/smoke is mild on the nose, mostly absent in the arrival, but after a few seconds in the mouth it really pops. There is another note somewhere between lavender and leather that I've seen some reviewers note is "plasticky", and I can see how one might interpret it that way, but in general I think it isn't a negative point.This whisky tastes just a little hot and young, needs a touch of water. I emailed Springbank and was told that this bottling is a mixture of 7, 10, and 14 year old bourbon-matured stuff, and the heat leads me to suspect that the 7 year old might be in the majority here. With a teaspoon of water and a little time it calms down just fine, though.

This is the best non-islay peated malt. Distilled by Springbank in Campbeltown. 46% abv, no artificial colour, non-chill filtered. What's not to like? This is a delightful dram. Strong, but not overpowering. Opens up nicely with a little water. I will by buying again.

I'm sipping a glass of this right now. The dominant flavour on the nose and the tongue is peat, but not overwhelmingly so. It's a different kind of peat. Not TCP or iodine like Laphroaig. It's lighter, some might say immature. There is a seaspray note. Also a fruit note, something a bit sour. rhubarb in the tasting notes is a fair description. I also feel good drinking something from Springbank that is made the right way: 46% ABV, non-chill filtered, no artificial colouring. I'm very happy I bought this bottle. The hardest thing will be making it last.

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.*(unless you're buying me a present, then I'll have a dozen)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.
