Three Rivers Bowmore 2014 14yr Whisky Review
Tried this one in Japan at Bar Gravity near Ebisu Station.
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.
Age: 14yr's Old
Bottler: Three Rivers
Distillation Date: 2000
Bottling Date: 2014
Limited: 47 of 275
The folks at Three Rivers really know how to pick a cask. This is the best post 2000 Bowmore I have tried to date, and one of the best full stop.
