Review #47 | /r/Bourbon Review #24 – Evan Williams Single Barrel, 2006 Vintage
The Schtick: This is a single barrel offering from Evan Williams.
Distiller: Evan Williams
Bottler: Evan Williams
ABV: 43.3% ABV
Age: 9 Years
Nose: Light sweetness and vanilla, some peanut which is much stronger here than in the Booker’s I recently reviewed. Some earthy notes followed by a little maple.
Taste: Some woody sweetness, some vanilla and spice and then some funky leather/oak notes. I like it a lot.
Finish: It’s a little short and a little one trick pony but some peanuts funk, sugar and a little wood mingle away.
Overall: Not bad. There are a lot of enjoyable notes here. New vintages are being released all the time, so it will be interesting to compare as more pop up.
