Review: John J. Bowman Bourbon WhiskeyProduced and distributed by the A. Smith Bowman Distillery out of Fredericksburg, Virginia, John J. Bowman Bourbon Whiskey is a single barrel whiskey, that is eventually brought to 100 proof before each bottle is filled.

More than anything, Bowman has some real history, being in operation since the end of prohibition. Each whiskey of theirs is named after a historic family figure, and has information about them on the back.

Being a single barrel whiskey, means that the whiskey isn't blended with other barrels before it is bottled, giving each barrel of whiskey a chance to have just a slightly different taste to it, and this flavor really comes out when you try it.

Popping the cork top, you get a really nice smell. This whiskey is light colored, and in the first sip, you can taste the flavor. Sweet with caramel and a little bit of vanilla. This whiskey is 100 proof, and you can tell when you drink it that it definitely has some alcohol in it, but it's not enough of a kick that you'll stop drinking it.

This whiskey could be mellowed down with a little water or adding some ice, if the proof is too high for some people. Overall, it's got a great taste to it that shows it's been aged for a real while. If you're looking for a nicer whiskey to impress your friends with, John J. Bowman Bourbon Whiskey is worth checking out. You can tell it's well aged, and it has some real history to it that should impress as well.
