Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch-honoring the year that the first Kentucky distillery opened-has been around for quite some time. In 2021 the bottle and presentation was updated and the proof went from 86 to 90. The palate offers up vanilla, oak, toasted brown sugar, and light caramel. Finishes nicely with caramel, oak, and quick heat. A great price point and an easy-sipping bourbon.
