Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Evan Williams 1783 is a quintessential Heaven Hill bourbon that’s sweet, oaky, and nutty. It honors the year that Evan Williams founded Kentucky’s first distillery. 1783 Small Batch Bourbon is the second highest proof in the Evan Williams Bourbon family, at 90 proof as of its update in May 2021. This small batch Bourbon is pulled from less than 200 barrels. It’s extra-aged and uses the same sour mash process and traditional recipe made popular by their namesake.
The aroma features prominent nutty tones, subtle caramel, and vanilla, accompanied by a delicate floral hint and a touch of cherry lollipop, while the palate offers a gentle interplay of cinnamon spice, pepper, and a hint of cherry, underscored by dominant notes of caramel and vanilla, alongside a restrained oak presence. The finish showcases persistent cinnamon spice, mild oak, and a balanced mix of caramel, nuts, and raisins.
