    You can find it at Master of Malt for £109.95 ($174. USD) in the UK.
    MoM also sells a 3 cl sample for £6.25 ($10.00 USD).
    Shipping costs not included.

    It's also at Royal Mill Whiskies, and others via a google search for Evan Williams 23.

    Re: 2011 World Whisky Awards

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I shall use them wisely. Also, has anyone had this stuff? Is it worth the price tag? $350 is a whole lot of money for a bottle of bourbon, in my opinion.

    Interesting that the young and middle-aged whiskeys took it this time around. Where's GTS?
