    Which Evan Williams SB?

    This is related to a previous post by Sijian re bourbon for novices.

    In his post he mentions Evan Williams SB as a good bourbon for novices to try and I put it down on my list. A quick Google search has revealed there are a number of different vintage years for the Evan Williams SB.

    So which year would Sijian be referring to when he recommended Evan Williams? Or does it matter?

    It really doesn't matter the year. I find that they are all good examples of what is a single barrel. Also if its available in your area I suggest eagle rare single barrel they both are under 30.00 and are a great value.

    I am not a big fan of single barrels. I would suggest that most of what HH makes is of a similar quality and style. IMO, you don't need to pay extra for what they give you. Try a Bottled in Bond.

    Eagle Rare SB is available here but at $75 CDN per bottle. I will pick this up on my next trip to Bellingham where its $28 USD.

    Re: Which Evan Williams SB?

    Because they are single barrel you will have variations from year to year. I like some years over others due to the nature of the single barrel. Jeff's suggestion is good but I would modify and say go ahead and get a SB and a BIB and do a comparison. See which one you like and make that a steady part of your bunker.
