Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2003

86.6 proof; bottled on March 22, 2013 (just shy of 10 years); $29/750ml

Nose: Vanilla, honey, some herbal notes; very soft and sweet.

Taste: Buttery soft on the front and middle of the palate, with a very slight burn on the back. The vanilla and honey are prominent first, along with those botanicals; oak and cinnamon take over the finish. 

Verdict: This bourbon is unusual in that the nose and the taste are quite similar. Low-proof, light and somewhat flowery, it’s an easy-drinking bourbon – enjoy it neat this summer.
