Evan Williams

Post by Frankennietzsche »

This is just the standard Evan Williams. I think that this is on par with Beam Black label. Here's the thing that I just noticed, and I do not know why it took me two bottles of this to do it: 86 proof. That extra 3% makes a difference in taste. $13 a fifth. Good old Bardstown.

beeteedubs- the Evan Williams Single Barrel is a grand whiskey. I haven't had it in a while, which i need to rectify, soon.

I had a bottle of the Evan Williams 1783 small batch this past weekend. Just a couple bucks more, had to try it.
Tasty at 86 proof, and t'wil get you there.

I always though EW was vastly underated by most. I've said it before, dollar for dollar it may be the best bourbon value buy out there.

Also if you can find it the white lable EW is a bottled in bond version at a 100 proof. You think 3% abv makes a difference in taste try it bumped up another 7%. The rye in the mash bill comes more to the fore. Not nearly as much caramel sweetness.

Evan's is quite tasty. *ahem* sorry, Evan Williams, for you bottom shelf snobs. Yet to try the White Label: 100.

Crave a tasty treat in a square bottle that is actual, real Bourbon? Got some tipping to do. It's my go to when I can't spend for Bulleit or the mighty Buffalo. Mmmmm


Of course, I'm a krakenhead, so take my opinion with a grain of charred sawdust.

I tend alternate between Beam and Evan as my regular bourbon. For the price Evan is fucking excellent. Sipping some in my coffee right now. When I can find it I like to pick up the white label Evan. As stated above it's top notch shit. Cheers bourbon drinkers.
