Whiskey Review: Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon

  • Apr 5, 2010

Last year I purchased a bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel  Kentucky Bourbon, the 1998 vintage.  It sat on my shelf, waiting and  waiting to be opened.  I had only one bottle and to be honest it looked  so nice that I really did not want to ruin the look of my liquor cabinet  by opening it.  It was in my “save for a special occasion” shelf.  Then  something wonderful happened.  My good friend, Dennis was given a  bottle as well.  He had no such compunction to save the elixir and he  happily agreed to share some samples with me.   (In case you feel I was  taking advantage of him, I should let you know that this is a mutual  thing that we do,  I share, and he shares, and everyone is very happy as  we both get to try many more wonderful spirits this way.)

Now Evan Williams Single Barrel whiskeys are indeed something very  special.  They have been winning awards since 1990, in a vast variety of  Spirit’s journals, magazines and contests including Gold Medals at the  Prestigious San Fransisco World Spirits Competition for their 1993 and  1994 bottlings.

Here is an Excerpt from My review:

“…After taking a deep wiff of the air around my whiskey glass, I close my eyes.  In my imagination, I have just stumbled into a sawmill where they are cutting large rough timber beams.  I can smell the wood tannins exposed on the sides of the timber and the fresh cut wood grain scent is delightful.  Of course there is much more than oak timbers in the glass:  wild honey,  rich vanilla, toffee, caramel and hints of molasses rise from the glass in a rich vibrant aroma which is spicy and tannin filled….”
