Evan Williams 1999 Single Barrel
• Vintage dated
• Single Barrel
• A true giant
• ABV 63.9%, 75cl
Evan Williams 1999 Single Barrel is part of the Evan Williams vintage series. Produced by Heaven Hill, this is the only vintage dated bourbon whisky you can buy, making it much sought after. This is the 14th release the distillery has produced.
Even within the vintage each example presents its own unique characteristics. No blending takes place meaning each bottle is drawn directly from a single barrel. The result is hugely impressive.
This is an award-winning whisky and rightly so. It has a smooth and sweet complexity making it a great sipping bourbon. You will probably need to add water, though, as it is bottled at a huge ABV 63.9% -- cask strength in all its glory.
Evan Williams 1999 Single Barrel delivers on a lot of fronts: it is packed with history, being named after the first commercial distiller in the US; it is aged 10 years adding refinement and sophistication; it is single barrel adding intrigue and exclusivity; and, it is vintage dated adding something that is genuinely unique.
Although not for beginners, this is a colossus of a bourbon whisky. More...
