    Re: Which Evan Williams SB?

    I like the EWSB some like other years better than other but I wonder if it's not that they have had barrels that they don't like. I also like the EW black label I can't get the BIB here.

    BIB means if I can get this right means 100 proof, aged at least 4 years, all distilled and barrel in one season I think that's it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong here.

    I think BIB is from a sigle batch.

    The product of a single distillery, in a single season, aged at least four years and bottled at 100 proof.

    Re: Which Evan Williams SB?

    I gotta say, I am a bit disappointed in this thread. I think this is an excellent question, and I have been lurking waiting for a good answer. I know I have heard people talk about some years being better than others, and you have the whole pre-fire post-fire.

    I would really like to hear which years people think are the best.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I have only had 97,98,99 so I can't speak any earlier but I am going to go 97 then 99 and finally 98.

    1992 and 1994 are the best.

    Re: Which Evan Williams SB?

    For me it has been the 97 over the 92, 93, 94, 96, and 98.

    In truth, I do not really care for any of them and do not plan on buying any more... I do know where to get a 94 & 95 if anyone is looking for them. One of the 2 was the christmas pack... I think it was the 95 and the 94 is in the box.

    Re: Which Evan Williams SB?

    thanks for the specific years. I found a lot of reviews for the 96. I take it the 96 was the best seller for Evan Williams? I'm only suggesting that because the 96 hasn't seemed to have made anyone's list.

    I don't personally buy the Single Barrel at $27.

    I would much prefer to buy two of HH's Bib for the same price (2 x $12.50=25). That's why you won't see me purchasing or commenting on the Single Barrel. Sorry.

    Jeff,

    Don't knock the EWSB. It is a very good selection for a novice. It was also a good selection for a Sampler tasting just a few year's ago. I also know many new bourbonites who love this whiskey. The alternative BIB HH selections your mention are not available in many areas. They are good whiskeys but not in the class of EVSB, so back off your negative response.
