Three Rivers Bowmore 2014 14yr Whisky Review

Three Rivers Bowmore 2014 14yr

Tried this one in Japan at Bar Gravity near Ebisu Station.

Notes

Eye: Golden amber

Nose: Clay, with high levels of peat. Lemon honey and oak notes. Hints at the ocean but not overly maritime. Something like diesel in there.

Palate: Sweet. Very lemon sweet. Almost surgical in how sharp and clean it is. Oily. Peat heaven, you could almost mistake this for Port Ellen.

Finish: Oily lemon and BBQ. Again, this is seriously like Port Ellen in both profile and mouthfeel. Lots of clay and lemon malt ride this out with the peat.
