    Re: Thoughts on evan williams 1783

    I think it's a decent well bourbon. I found it to be like a milder tasting version of regular EW. I didn't notice any odd flavors or smells. It costs only around $10 here.

    Here in VA, it's around $14, I think, and I wasn't impressed by it. EW BIB is a couple of bucks cheaper, and a lot better IMO, but that's just my tastes chiming in on the question.
    Never ask a man if he is from Virginia. If he is, he'll tell you. If he isn't, you don't want to embarass him.

    EW BIB rocks! I love the stuff.

    They don't have Heaven Hill Bond nuthin' out here in California (except for McKenna Bond...so far ). Do the Evan Williams and Heaven Hill bonds of similar ages have similar profiles, or are they distinct from each other?

    I find each has it's own profile. They do a good job on those bonds.

    JTS Brown tastes different to me compared to JW Dant and Heaven Hill 4 year and 6 year old.

    I recently tried JTS brown bonded, Heavenhill bonded, and fighting cock (all the same mashbill) and they were all pretty close with some slight differences. All 3 had that distinct heavenhill nuttyness that I dont get as much of in EW (haven't tried the dant). I'll probably stick with HH bonded and EW bonded just because of the price.
