    Evan Williams Single Barrel 2002

    I've been quite a fan of the 2000 vintage of EWSB. 2001 is pretty good. I just saw 2002 on the shelf, but haven't tasted it. Anyone had the 2002 to compare to the previous two years?

    No, but I'm drinking the 2000 EWSB at the moment and love it, so much so I bought 13 bottles.....should keep me going.

    I am also interested in how the 2002 compares (though I'm sure its good and i'm sure I'll try it)

    Re: Evan Williams Single Barrel 2002

    Here's an early review:
    http://www.drinkhacker.com/2011/12/1...-2002-vintage/

    I wasn't lucky enough to get the 2000, but currently on the last pours of a bottle of 2001. The 2001 is great as an everyday drink at it's price point, but I'm not in love with it. Not sure if going even woodier for the 2002 is the right direction.

    Thanks to my buddy yountvillewjs, two bottles of the 2000 have been located very nearby for $27/bottle. Sounds like they are worth grabbing???

    If you're interested in the EWSB, it seems to be the best out of the most recent bunch.

    As a side request: If anyone spots any EWSB 2000 on a liquor store shelf in NYC, please let me know. I can't find it anywhere.

    I've not tried the EWSB before...but seeing as these are close and seem to be reasonably priced, seems like a good bottle to get the introduction. My friend and I are going to split it, 1 bottle each.

    The Drinkhacker review says it pushes the wood (just like your mom w... oh, forget it), but other reviews I've read mention how sweet the first batch of the 2002 is, compared to recent years. Not a good development, IMO.

    edit: or maybe not so much. These other reviews mention the sweetness, but also say the first barrel had some spice.

    I'm still sitting on 2 bottles of the '01 at the store, have not gotten in any of the '02 yet, but I will be taking a bottle home with me when it does come in. I love all the variation in the EWSB's, makes every year a different bottle to taste on different occasions. Funny trying to remember what they each taste like though before you pour a glass.

    I'd steer clear of the 2001.

    I think it's OK. Just OK, not exactly ideal for sipping neat.

    Please let me know if anyone sees the 2000 in NYC!
