Evan Williams Single Barrel 2003 Vintage (Barrel No. 1), 43.3%

Price: $26 Issue: Spring 2013 Reviewer: John Hansell

Silky smooth. Lush honey notes married with bright orchard fruit and candied tropical fruit. Soft vanilla, mint, and cinnamon round out the palate. Seamless and perilously drinkable. Proof that a bourbon doesn't have to be old, high in alcohol, or expensive to be good. Editor's Choice & Value Pick
