Evans Williams 1783 – The Bourbon Guide

Evan Williams 1783

Small Batch – approx. $15 for 750ml – 86 proof (43%)

$15 dollars for this bourbon is a steal! It almost made us pass it on as a bottom shelf no name drink, but that would have been a major mistake. This is a real whiskey and should certainly be included in everyone’s collection. Do not let the cheap price tag fool you. My only comment is if this is $15 a bottle, why is Makers so much more… and forget some of the other drinks!

Tasting was done on the rocks.

Rater Comments
Jason Agreed – great surprise for the price.  A versatile bourbon for your cabinet – not an issue mixing it given the price but can be offered as a sipping bourbon just the same. If you see it and have room – give it a try.
Tripp Nose: Sweet. Nice Taste: Sweet and smooth. Really nice. Cheap!! $16. Delicious. Buy this drink. Keep it on your shelf when you want a great sweet bourbon and do not want to feel guilty about spending money. This bottle is cheaper than most wine and will last you 15 times a long with way more enjoyment. A definite personal favorite.
