    1783

    I went to a local liquor store and they had the Evan Williams 1783 for under twenty bucks for 1.75L bottle. Now the BIB EW White was more than that... and as far as I know, not aged.... The 1783 also does not have an age statement. I am curious about the 1783, if it is better than the black or the white...... I just might buy it to check it out... Anyone tried it?

    Re: 1783

    The EW 1783 1 year ago was a 10 YO bourbon. It, along with many other bourbons, have dropped the age statement. In general this is due to the current shortage of older bourbon. My suggestion - so if you can't find a bottle of the 1783 with 10 YO on the bottle.

    If you do a search for "asparagus" you will find quite a few references to 1783. Personally I like asparagus and am disappointed that I do not feel the same about 1783.

    Re: 1783

    Since a half gallon of 1783 is the same price as a half gallon of EW Black, which do you think tastes better?

    Re: 1783

    I always associate my bottle of EW1783 (10 yo age statement) with "corn husk" -- not the mint/menthol of the black label. (Asparagus? I'll have to try it again tonight!)

    EW7 (I stocked up when the age statement disappeared) is my "sorry-I-don't-keep-any-Jack" pour for Jack Daniel's drinkers who visit.

    At 12$ + tax this has been the cheapest bourbon I have bought to date and I definitely give it a thumbs up. I don't taste any asparugus.

    I too think this is a tasty bourbon with some character and complexity. I haven't picked up asparagus in my bottle. I'll be buying another.

    Re: 1783

    Not available here, I've wanted to give this a try since I read the good review in Wine Enthusiast. Pacault called it 'the best bargain in spirits' at the time of the review, years ago. Non 10-year may not still qualify, but it's still good enough to remain on my 'seek and destroy' list.

    Re: 1783

    I liked it when it was still 10 y/o. Haven't had any of the new stuff and probably won't because PA discontinued it.
