Like a fine wine, Every bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon contains a vintage date telling the exact day it was once put in an oak barrel to age. Yearly, a new vintage of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage is released to critical acclaim.
The 1990 Vintage was once the first Bourbon to be awarded “Whiskey of the Year” by The Spirit Journal. The 1991 Vintage was once awarded “Domestic Whiskey of the Year” by The Malt Advocate and “Spirit of the Year” by Wine & Spirits. Most recently, the 1992 Vintage was once named “Spirit of the Year” by Food & Wine and “Best Bottling of 2001” by Wine Enthusiast.
“The medium amber colour is bright…the opening sniffs after the pour display the trademark gentle, fruit-like sweetness/graininess of Evan Williams – time in the glass affords the chance for the bouquet to deepen and grow complex as layers of aroma include milk chocolate, marshmallow, sugar cookies and freshly mown hay; the palate entry is concentrated, sweet, mildly oaky/resiny and medium-bodied – by midpalate, there?s an embers-glow warmth on the tongue, followed by sturdy, woody tastes of oaky vanillin and almond butter; the finish shows a minor touch of honey; the remarkable legend of EW Vintage Single Barrel continues with this luscious addition; one of the crucial 5 – 6 whiskeys that I genuinely look forward to each and every time it’s released as a new bottling; Craig and Parker Beam are wizards in the selection of these utterly sensational bourbons; continues to be one of the crucial finest whiskey values on the earth.”

Lush and chewy with touches of spice. Sweet oak with honey notes of apple and orange rind along side charred oak and dark caramel. Complex and moreish.
Vintage-dated meaning that Every bottle is marked with the vintage date it was once put into oak along side the year it was once bottled and the exact serial number of the single barrel that the Bourbon was once drawn from. Which means that you’ll be able to tell exactly how long your Bourbon has been aged in oak- to the very day!
Barrels have been hand-selected by our master distillers. Every different barrel number will have it’s own unique flavour profile- why not compare and contrast?!
A five-time Whisky of the Year award winner!
