Evan Williams Extra aged Sour Mash Bourbon Tasting Notes;
Nose: Slightly sharp and green with a touch of menthol.
Taste: A very sweet start with soft brown sugars and caramel. As the middle is reached there is a hint of spice and maltiness.
Finish: A gentle finale to a light, easy-going whiskey. Limited vanilla and a little oak sap add extra weight but the small grains, especially the malt, do hang on to the finish.
Comments: An easy number, this. A fresh, light weight throughout makes this one not for those looking for the intensity you might expect at 7 years but a gentle, sweet, untaxing journey with not a bump along the way.”
