Evan Williams

I have a friend who swears by Evan Williams whiskey. I have a stock that usually consists of Knob Creek and Maker's Mark but based on my friend's recommendation, would like to try a bottle of Evan Williams.

My pal buys Single Barrel. Comments? Is there a better horse in the Williams stable?

  1. EWSB is excellent stuff. I've heard great things about Elijah Craig Single Barrel, but have yet to try it.

    1. The EW black label definitely gets best in show in the cheaper bourbon category. The single barrel is very, very good.

        From what I've seen here in the chgo area though, ewsb is the same price as knob creek, and I loves me some knob creek...can I really put almost $30 in ewsb and enjoy it? Just asking, cause I've never tried it...I found the eagle rare 10 year here for $23.99, and is pretty damn tasty if I say so myself...

      2. Great stuff at a good price. I'll bet in a blind test, you'd like it better than Maker's Mark.

        1. Evan Williams and Elijah Craig are both top quality. EWSB is up there with the best for that sort of money.

          1. I'lll make yet another strong recommendation for the single barrel.
