| Evan Williams Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 1L|
Evan Williams Black Label is medium amber in color. The nose is light with deep vanilla and mint. On tasting, there are notes of honey, brown sugar and caramel, with a medium to long finish!
The Nose: A spice and fruit nose, vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of clove mixed with sweet orange, a bit of cantaloupe and a touch of baked apple dessert. Thereís just a little bit of a solvent-y, corn oil whiff but itís slight and not really off-putting. This is not a super rich or complex nose itís but interesting enough and decently nuanced.
The Palate: A carmelized, slightly syrupy beginning quickly shows the rye in the mashbill with more vanilla bean, cinnamon, and clove. Towards the end, thereís a slightly harsh quality to the woody dryness that emerges and a surprising amount of charred and smokey wood, and but overall, itís relatively smooth. Again, not super complex but very palatable and smooth for the price point.
The Finish: The rye still comes through as does the cinnamon, clove and the charred wood quality
