      We tasted about 6 different bottles of whisky, and they all had different aromas and developed differently in my mouth. Whisky is so much more than JD! After tasting the last whisky, my mouth was all numb and even hours later, i still had the smokey whisky aroma in my airways^^

      PS: Did you know that Ballantines Finest Blend actually has a caramel smell? Neither did i, but after 5-6 sips of other whiskeys, i smelled it and it has a really strong caramel scent!

      i think, i’ve never drunk any other whiskey than jd. i should try some other whiskeys too. :-)
      uh, i love the smell of caramel. definitely need to try that one.
