Evan Williams Single Barrel 2005 Vintage (Barrel #292), 43.3%

Price: $29 Issue: Fall 2015 Reviewer: John Hansell

Complex fruit (clementine, pineapple, golden raisin) balanced nicely with honey, vanilla custard, and dusty corn, along with a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg. An extremely versatile whiskey with its medium weight, easy to embrace personality, and subtle charms. Perennially one of the best values in whiskey. Editor's Choice and Value Pick.
