Springbank Longrow CV was recently recommended to me and I like it, a LOT! I think the nose is its strongest feature. Smoke and peat but not like Ardbeg, much more grassy and yet coastal. Don't add water! I did and I didn't like it as much. There is an almost lemony nose to it as well. The taste is spicy and oily with smoky peat and a bit of heat sitting at the front of the tongue. As good as it tastes it does smell better. It finishes dry and peaty with some spice. I'm happy with the finish and balance but I could honestly just nose this whisky all night, never drinking it and still be very satisfied.
