Tasting Notes

If you are looking for serious, old school bourbon that holds its own dollar for dollar against any other bottling, then Evan Williams is your brand. This iconic label out of the historic Heaven Hill stable of great American whiskies inspires a passionate following and a lot of repeat sipping. This bottled in bond expression, of which there are too few left in the world, was created as a guarantee of quality, and it does not disappoint. The higher proof keeps those classic bourbon notes of caramel, vanilla, oak spice, and apples singing on the nose while the hallmark mellow flavors come through in spades on the palate.

Staff Pick Notes

"Bottled in Bond" is an old school bourbon term that was created for the consumer as an assurance of quality. By some, it's considered an archaic phrase that many distillers have done away with. But considering that Evan Williams is Kentucky's first commercial distillery, it's pretty neat that they've held onto the traditional labeling. This one's a sipper or a mixer. I especially enjoy higher-proof whiskeys in cocktails, because the extra "oomph" manages to punch through the other ingredients. Don't let the price tag trick you into believing you cant enjoy this bottle by its lonesome. Expect the classic caramel, vanilla and oak flavors on the palate. The smoothness is even miraculously unaffected by the higher proof. You've had a bad college experience with Mr. Williams you say? That's not his fault! Give him another shot.
