Reddish copper in color with notes of Caramel, with hints of vanilla, oak and barley. Heavy caramel and vanilla moving towards a toasty cereal. Oak char notes and a bit of syrupy sweetness. Evan Williams, the second largest selling brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the U.S., is named for Kentucky’s first distiller of 1783. As the flagship brand of Heaven Hill’s Bourbon portfolio, Evan Williams’ extra aging gives it a richer, smoother Bourbon taste than the competition.
