I just found in the last few months the following EWSBs - 1993, 1996, 1997, 2000, 2001 and 2002. No 2003 on the shelves in RI yet that I've seen. The 1997 and 2000 I just got on Friday and there were 2 bottles of 2000 left, though given consensus here I'll be going back for those 2000s. I haven't cracked any of them open yet because I want to know a bit of what to expect and because I might be do a vertical tasting. (and because I already have too many open bottles). Among the EWSB cognoscenti how do those vintages compare?
I have all of the vintages you mentioned and find the '97 and '00 to be my favorites (along with the '98, which isn't in the list). A vertical is a lot of fun with these, particularly with the '96 and earlier vintages, '97, '98/'99, and '00 and later as they were all different distilleries. Have fun with your tastings and let us know what you think!
