New kid again. Is Evan Williams a good cheap bourbon?

They had a newsletter or religion or something that you could sign up for and they would send you christmas cards. I used to get something, but I have moved so much, that I don't anymore.Were they the ones who did the Brotherhood of Bourbon thing? They had events.

I spent years--years I tell you!--drinking Evan green label. Excellent stuff. The black and white labels just don't quite do it for me.

I respectfully disagree with the last two posts.
Black label is the way to go. 96 proof and I don't find it any less smooth than green label.

As was U.S. Grant. I drink it, too but it is at a lower price point than Evan Williams black label in my neck of the woods

You mean 86 proof? Because if you're getting 96 then I'm getting ripped off.

Completely agree, though. I go through several bottles of the black label every week. Good medicine for whatever ails you.

Correct. Pardon my shitty typing skills carried out on a cell phone screen.
That little bit of higher proof brings a bit more flavor. Not any less smooth, as previously stated, though. So: a few cents extra gets more ABV and a bit more flavor bunch means it's the choice for me out of the two.

Cheers,

Evan Williams handles are aroud 28 bucks here. It is my go to for the war on undrunkenness.The grunts if you will. They take the brunt of the damage while the higher end guys , the officers, check things out and make the assessment. Do we go to bed or to war?

Anyway you'd be hard pressed to find a better value in the taste to dollar ratio.
