Evan Williams Bottled In Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
Evan Williams Bottled-in-Bond is aged under government supervision and meeting the exact requirements for a Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon. It has all the kick you expect-but still goes down smooth. Bright Gold color. Caramel nose with hints of vanilla, oak & barley. Tastes of citrus on top of vanilla & black pepper. Warm, long & dry finish.
The opening aroma is grainy and corn-like, with background touches of paraffin and walnut butter; aeration stimulates green peppercorn, cotton candy and dried fruit scents that are a tad flat. Palate entry is crisp, prickly; by midpalate, the flavor highlights the toasty barrel char as tastes of maple, vanilla bean and dark caramel dominate this stage. Ends fiery, grainy, but lean.
