    The body is very clear and a bit more lighter than expected but it looks really cool. The aroma has hints of vanilla, toffee and malts. On mouth, it's heavy in density and soft in flavor, having a very absent flavor profile that only leaves you with vanilla and malt. The end is too fiery for my taste but it's rather good. Would buy again.

    This is a much perfect iteration on the old number 7. Much sweeter, more soft and more mellow. Liking this one.

    A friend of mine received this bottle as a birthday gift. On that very moment, we decided to crack this bottle open and give it a try. Poured some Jim Beam to a couple shot cups and here we are: Aroma: The aroma is very rich, with a great profile of vanilla. Just in the back, there lays the hints of malts and the expressionist alcohol, which I find a bit too expressive. Taste: The senses here find some spiciness, peaty tones and just a minor profile of malts. Mouthfeel: Currently I'm still learning a few things of bourbon but this is too hot either in mouth and in throat. I do not like this behavior. For me, it should be really smooth on mouth and only then it can catch 'fire'. Overall: This is probably my first reasonable bourbon. Not my favorite stuff but I'll just keep on learning.

    Islay is probably the Mecca of whisky. Everything I've had from here seems like a God Licquor. Bowmore came to me as a big surprise. I've never heard about this whisky until it was given to me as a birhtday gift. Clearly, this is one of the best whiskies I've ever had. It's peaty like Laphroig, it's smoky like Lagavulin, but the presence of peat and smokiness is so smooth that it makes a whisky that you can recurrently drink. What makes it great whisky is that you can one and two and not be overwhelmed by the taste. The Distiller Score is deserved.
