    Before there was Longrow peated there was the CV. Good entry level malt for Longrow.
    • Nose
      Good fresh maritime start with wet stones, seabreeze and some nice peat. The freshness continues into citrus fruit.
    • Taste
      Quite you would expect from the nose. Nice earthy peat. The citrus fruit is here again.  Some chalk and mineral feeling. Enough sweetness and quite oily.
    • Finish
      Good length on salt and peat with some fruity sweetness

    One of the least interesting Springbanks I've ever tasted. Enthusiasm 3/5 Whisky n ° 1281
    • Nose
      Grassy first. It's young. Are there cognac casks ?? Strange... The duo soot / fruit finally emerges.
    • Taste
      Sweet, mellow and spicy, it is balanced but a little rough and unreadable.
    • Finish
      Easy, moderate smoke, spicy. A little rough.

    very good, no flaws!
    89/100
    • Nose
      I´m tasting this after having had the longrow peated.
      plays in the same league. very similar profile.
      peaty and ashy with lemons and salt, rain on dusty pavement.
      young and direct and just lovely stuff. you can try to describe these whiskies but one has to try them otherwise he won´t understand what you mean.
    • Taste
      longrow, longrow , longrow. I don´t wanna repeat myself, mostly the same taste as longrow peated, perhaps a tad sweeter but I´m not sure. I think itś also a bit older than the "peated".
    • Finish
      long and quite peaty and ashy, still slightly salty.

  10. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful composition of different types of barrels!
    • Nose
      Complex nose, rum notes, bitter orange, typical saltiness, light peat smoke, the light youth comes through and lets the alcohol feel something, the bitter orange dominate in the aroma
    • Taste
      Smoke, oak, sugar sweetness and light smoke come together directly, slightly astringent, the saltiness and the oranges come again
    • Finish
      Here comes me again some rum and the meaning, the bitter oranges stick together with the oak sweet on the palate, the oak becomes more dominant over time
