Evan Williams 1993, Single Barrel
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
8 The big, malty, chocolately style that I associate with Evan Williams. A lovely, voluptuous, afterdinner bourbon. Gains from a splash of water.

Evan Williams 1994 (Bottled 2003)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Has the signature mix of honey,citrus, grip and precision.

Evan Williams 1995 (Bottled 2005)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
In a similar vein to 89 and 94.

Evan Williams 1996 (Bottled 2005)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
Big and bold.

Evan Williams 1997 (Bottled 2006)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
More ordered after the '96. Perfumed.

Evan Williams 1998 (Bottled 2007)
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
The bigger fatter ones like this and the ‘92 are slightly less expressive.

Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.30%
We're back to where we started.

8 A lovely bourbon, but I prefer it younger.

Evan Williams Black
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 43.00%
7 Reminiscent of an old calvados at first. Palate is less creamy than the nose. For those who like it spicy. Water tames spices a little though.
