As America's second-largest selling Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Evan Williams honours the man recognized as Kentucky's First Distiller, who set up his stills in 1783 on the banks of the Ohio River in Louisville. Evan Williams Black Label, 86 proof, was a Silver Medalist at the recent San Francisco World Spirits Competition, defeating brands costing four or five times its price. It is a national and internationally known Bourbon, with distribution in select markets in Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim.
Light golden colour. A big nose with lots of oak, vanilla and a touch of marmalade. Crisp entry on the palate with spicy oak and a light grainy touch. Develops well with more oak coming through, a little mint and apple and then finishing with a rich slightly rustic note and a kick from the spirit.
