Evan Williams Black Label

Well if you are looking for it-- Evan Willams Black is an AMAZING value (i think i paid $15.99 for my 1.75). On the nose There is stewed fruit, clean smoke and hints of caramelized corn in a leather bowl. The flavor follows suit in an oily mouth-feel building to articulate mellow baking spices, caramel and vanilla with a slight vegetable bitterness at the back palate that adds a nice bit of complexity to fun and simple whisky. The finish is of a medium duration and enjoyable. This is a solid bourbon. If you factor in the incredible deal-- This stuff is awesome.
