This is the apparent replacement to the C.V, which was much appreciated by all of us whisky afficionados. It was introduced over a year ago and seemed to follow in the C.V's footsteps so i grabbed me a bottle. (advise: these notes are from late 2013)
Nose: Oily raincoat on a rainy day at the harbour, or close to the coast-line. Pungent peat (maybe self evident) but almost elegant compared to the usual almost charcoal-nature of the longrow peat. Some juicy fruit under the peat: Pear, baked pear, apples (yellow), quince (distinct and unusual), kiwi fruit. Some avocado and boston pickles rounds off this interesting nose.
Palate: Medium salty peat with a big cola-toffee note as its companion make up the arrival. Apples, pears and a very slight savoury lime note. Peaty but not fiery or pepppery, but like the nose: Oily pungent peat with juicy fruits, malt-sugars and cola.
Finnish Bitter cucumber skin and lemon oil, with the pungent peat finally rescessing from the banks.
Not better than some the C.V bottlings i've tried, but this is a very worthy successor nevertheless.
