Whisky Reviews for Longrow CV

46 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.37 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    It is interesting that the smoke note appears on the tongue very late and then all the more intensely in the finish. And once you've picked up the smoky trail, it shows it when you just sniff the (now empty) glass.
    Otherwise, a neat, younger longrow, which has an age-appropriate brisk finish.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Restrained, shy, fine nose. A compote of strawberries and rhubarb peels out after a little while. Initial spark: Now even more flavors “dare” into the spotlight, showing malt, yeast dough, toffee, nougat, creme brulee. Maritime notes and at the same time damp forest floor and slightly moldy wood in the background.
    • Taste
      86 86
      First lies gently on the tongue, but jaggedly pulls out a few interesting barbs and hooks onto the tongue. Hard to make out in the nose, the tongue shows the wet pebble, salt, savory and clove powder. Marzipanbrot. Almonds. Fresh fruit salad with a dash of lemon. Looks clear, refreshing, lively. Over time, dry wood and - quite late, I think - smoke materialize.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Just so medium in the finish. Dry, wood, now clearly smoky. Fading fruits.

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Decent whisky. Can't keep up with older longrows, of course, because he lacks depth. But you can drink it well and is a good start in terms of longrow.

  6. Palindrome scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This one has a pan fried rattle snake note. Love it. Rustle me up another dram from the larder, hoss.

    Longrow CV,

    I read so many reviews about you, often rave about it. You have to believe that the memory that accompanies some missing whiskys and the emotional imprint they leave are indelible and misleading because, although sympathetic, I find it hard to understand the craze about this Curriculum Vitae.
    Heavily peated? Is that so? Okay...
    Young? Yes, sure.
    Unforgettable? No, unquestionably ...

    I'll take the 10 yo over this one, anytime!
