Evan Williams Single Barrel 2007 Vintage (Barrel No. 724), 43.3%
Price: $30 ● Issue: Fall 2016 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
Aged slightly more than 9 years. (The annual single barrel releases jumped last year from approximately 10 years old to 9 years old, with both a 2005 and 2006 vintage released in the same year.) A mélange of fruit (apricot, candied citrus, pineapple, golden raisin) spiked with fresh mint and cinnamon on a bed of caramel and vanilla. In true form, this bourbon is flavorful and well-rounded.
