Not a bad bourbon for the price. I still remember it costing $12.99 (full retail) vs $18.99 now. Found a handle in Lexington for $31.99 so though I would revisit the old times. This is a lower proof (86) bourbon and makes a very drinkable Manhattan.
Pretty smooth but just not much to it. For the price it is perfectly fine and not a bad bottle, but there are better in the price range. The 5 stars doesn't reflect it's quality relative to comparbly priced bourbons, but rather compared to the gold standard (a true 10 star bourbon), so it is respectable
Great sipper. Sweet vanilla and caramel flavors with a hint of oak and leather. For me a cheap, everyday sipper from Heaven Hill that has great classic bourbon flavors. It's what i start with alot of times to get my palate right.
Great night cap over a little ice.
Gift from Emily, supposedly great value.
All around full flavor. General "go to" for mixed drinks.
Very light hints of caramel and baked cherries on the nose. Light body, as expected. Mild notes of spice and maple. Some vanilla to finish. Not disappointing for under $20.
Dark Chocolately, Caramelly. Great for the price, one of my gotos to share.
great sipping pour. Hits all the normal bourbon characteristics!
Like it. Its a staple for our later pours of the night, but can be our only dram as well. Lots of Cherry notes.
This should be a staple in everyone's bar. I drink my whiskey with ginger ale, and this was a great mix.
Love! it go’s real well with eggnog.
The family standard.
A harsh flavor. I did not like thus whiskey. Had to add ice...I do not like adding ice. The only ingredients for a drink should be whiskey & a glass.
Crisp and creamy, but immediately followed by a spicy and drying paprika. Finish has notes of honey wheat and bread. Spice of finish is lasting, but no tail.
Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch honors the year that Evan Williams founded Kentucky's First Distillery. This small batch Bourbon is pulled from less than 200 barrels. It's extra-aged and uses the same sour mash process and traditional recipe made popular by their namesake Evan Williams Black. Evan Williams 1783 shares in the heritage of Evan Williams Black, which is the second largest selling brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the US.
OK mixer, but there's better at the price point - including Evan Williams Bottled in Bond, which is a few dollars cheaper (if you can find it)...
Makes a great old fashioned. Not a great sipper as it's thin and not very interesting. Worth the money for a mixer.
Best value for the money. Good for mixing.
Pretty good for the price
Quite the bite. Not my favorite but certainly not something I would shun given a lack of choose. Nice. Just raw tasting is all.
Too much bite.
For the price it can not be beat as an everyday sipper.
Work well in mixed drinks on the rocks.
not bad, but not great. probably best in mixed drinks.
This is a staple in my home bar. Evan Williams is an excellent, smooth utility bourbon for mixing cocktails. Not fantastic on the rocks or neat, but for the price you really can’t beat it. It’s the bourbon I buy the most.
Smooth, not a powerful flavor. A great mixing bourbon
