Interesting fact… Evan Williams Extra whiskey spells its name whiskey as it originates in America. Had it been produced in Scotland its name would be Evan Williams Extra whisky, instead of whiskey.
Lower priced bourbons get a lot of stick from "connoisseurs" of the whiskey trade. Let me say Evan Williams is a superb bourbon. Its balanced and very drinkable. Its also great when mixed. It has a sharp nose consisting of leather and spice. The taste is brown sugars and caramel. The finish is shortlived but also spicy and sweet. Why Jack Daniels is predominant in the market when gems like Evan Williams exist I really dont know. Great lower priced bourbon.
This is their house Bourbon - and it's great. Much much better than JD.
Amazing that this bourbon costs so little. It's not complex or refined, but it's also simply good. Lots of caramel on the nose, in fact, pretty much all the nose is. Once you taste it you will get a lot more caramel/brown sugar with a dense and woody backbone. A bourbon that is sweet, strong, and a bit rough. Not much of a finish and I personally got no spice anywhere on the palate with this whiskey. Very different tastes when compared to the spicy and acidic tastes of Jim Beam and Wild Turkey. It's a very hard bourbon, so adding water and letting it sit a bit helps a lot. A bourbon that I prefer to many of the whiskeys that sit a shelf up from it.
STRAIGHT OR MIXED.GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY.
