    Ew 1783

    Tried EW 1783 for the first time. Its got some nice vanilla and cherry cola sweetness with brown sugar mixed in. There's a healthy burn mid palate that goes into cinnamon before the oak takes over for a nice moderate dry finish. After it opens up in the glass for ten or fifteen minutes the flavors increase and a eucalyptus note comes in.
    It has a nice mouth feel- oily and substantial without being syrupy.
    There's nothing too complex about this one but its just a really decent, well balanced pour. And its only around $17. The EWB is a bargain too, but for just a bit more money, I find this one has more flavor and a better balance.
    Haven't tried the EWBIB white label yet but it would be interesting to compare.

    $17.00 for a 750 is about a 30% increase over what we have to pay locally.

    Well if that's the case I'm really looking forward to trying it. The 1783 isn't bad at all.

    Not it isn't, back in the days before single barrels and small batches the 10 year old 1783 was Parker Beam's favorite.

    In the mid 90s when I started drinking, you had to go to Florida to get 1783, Alabama did not stock it. And boy was that stuff a treat. And it stayed good, up until they changed the label up. I always say, a whiskey changes when the label changes.

    I used to drink EWB when it had a 7 year statement on the label. EW 1783 didn't seem to be around here then, but from what I've read, it too had an age statement- of 10 years. So yeah, it could well be that when they change a label and/or take away an age statement, the whiskey changes. And its not usually for the better.
    But I guess since I didn't taste the 1783 back then I don't know what I'm missing. Ignorance is bliss in this case. For a no frills classic bourbon profile- which seems to be what this pour is all about- I think it hits all the right marks. Its kind of upper bottom shelf stuff IMHO. Well I suppose that makes it a decent middle shelfer.

    1783 has come to the shelves in MN in just the last six months. I really enjoy it. I picked up a 1.75 for $25 and am pleased with it. I like it on the rocks and will try a Manhattan with it soon.
