Evan Williams

Another US whiskey named after an early distiller.... as in Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Elijah Craig and George Dickel.   In this case Evan Williams is a Welshman who emigrated to Kentucky in the 18th century.  The nose on his namesake bourbon is fruity (perhaps lime) and caramel.  Also some popcorn and bubblegum notes.  The taste has more caramel, sweetcorn and a little fruit (I read a review that suggested Cherry Cola and I have to say that is not a bad descriptor).  There is also some alchohol detectable, this expression comes in at 43% ABV.  The finish is a little peppery with some bitter oak spice notes  but still quite balanced with sweet notes.  Overall this is quite drinklable and very acceptable for a low cost bourbon hence my 3 star rating, I think it a bit better than the standard Jim Beam for example.  Is it a great bourbon?  No.  Is it a nice bourbon worth the price... I would say yes.
