Description:
Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon is the first and only vintage-dated Single Barrel Bourbon.

Like a fine wine, each bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage Bourbon contains a vintage date telling the exact day it was put in an oak barrel to age. Every year, a new vintage of Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage is released to critical acclaim.

The 1990 Vintage was the first Bourbon to be awarded "Whiskey of the Year" by The Spirit Journal. The 1991 Vintage was awarded "Domestic Whiskey of the Year" by The Malt Advocate and "Spirit of the Year" by Wine & Spirits. Most recently, the 1992 Vintage was 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 five or six whiskeys that I genuinely look forward to 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 finest whiskey values in the world."

Review: Massive Christmas-Cake aromas immediately after opening, brilliant. Wait 'til there's mates round before opening and pouring those first measures. After that it mellows, with a surprisingly high corn-like taste, mixed with vanillas and smoke. Very nice but at this price for a bourbon, I would consider others. But at this price for a Single Barrel you cannot argue.

When it arrived, I was amused to see that this bottle was taken from the cask the day after my birthday (almost a nice coincidence), if I order again when this bottle's empty, who knows... And that's the beauty of Single Barrel Vintages. I've certainly tasted enough in this one to consider buying another bottle of this well-priced single barrel beauty.

Review: I love Bourbon and this single barrel does not disappoint. Perfect on the rocks (as it should be) and rivals any other bourbon I've tried. Evan Williams is well worth a try.

Producer Information

Shortly after Prohibition ended in the United States, Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., was founded in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Shapira family to produce and market Bourbon and premium American whiskeys. At the time, it was as speculative a new business venture as the dot com start-ups of the 1990's -- a company founded with no brands, no available stocks of whiskey, and at the height of the Great Depression. Today, the company has overcome these initial challenges and grown to become the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country. According to industry analysts, Heaven Hill is now the seventh largest spirits supplier in the United States and is the second largest holder of aging Bourbon whiskey in the world with an inventory in excess of 675,000 barrels.
Over the last two decades Heaven Hill has moved beyond its traditional focus on American whiskeys to become a broadly diversified spirits supplier. Heaven Hill's portfolio includes both domestically produced products, such as Evan Williams Bourbon and Christian Brothers Brandy, as well as a growing line of selected imported brands from around the world, such as Hpnotiq Liqueur and Isle of Jura Single Malt Scotch. Brands are identified and developed to take advantage of the many varied consumer tastes that exist in the vast U.S. distilled spirits market. These brands are then sold on a national basis through an innovative and aggressive marketing and sales organization under a concept that is unique to the industry.
With an already robust business in the United States, Heaven Hill has now mounted an aggressive international expansion plan, forming partnerships with like-minded companies throughout the world. Heaven Hill has established its brands in over 40 countries throughout Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim, Central and South America.
The company's success is based on the fact that it is large enough to market brands aggressively in the United States and throughout the world, yet small enough to care about every brand and be responsive to the needs of every customer. Heaven Hill's formula for growth begins with the commitment to support its current portfolio of brands, while continuing to diversify by adding new products through internal development, agency relationships and acquisitions. Throughout its product line, Heaven Hill offers a competitive advantage by emphasizing unique characteristics like extra aging, superior quality, innovative packaging and uncompromised craftsmanship. Whether it is a Bourbon from Kentucky's First Distiller, such as Evan Williams, or a Gin first produced by the Lord Mayor of London, such as Burnett's, Heaven Hill products enjoy heritage, history and an unexcelled reputation.
In stark contrast to the unpredictable and ever-consolidating spirits industry, Heaven Hill remains fiercely independent, guided by the steady hands of the Shapira family. The company is dedicated to establishing long-term relationships with their customers in order to build strong brands and implement consistent, effective programming. Heritage, stability and dedication define Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., a company committed to producing and marketing the highest quality spirits products worldwide.
