I paid a visit to the boozery the other day. Restocked good bourbon and picked up something called "Evan Williams?" I dunno but it was CHEAP and I have parked it in the kitchen for my wife to use when cooking up "drunken collards."
I must admit, those "drunken collards," that she made with my Elijah Craig, were some kinda good!
Evan Williams Black, 90 proof, is one of the very best values in bourbon, very drinkable mixed or neat.

I didn't know about this thread until today. I will endeavor to keep up with it.

Last night, I sipped EW Single Barrel.

Evan Williams , a Heaven Hill product ... they're all good ! Actually , i have yet to have a Heaven Hill product that I didnt yet like or love . Henry McKenna is super similar to the EW 1783 ( also an HH product ) ... though the big ass bottle of McKenna is only 20 bucks

I need to do a side by side between EW Black and Ezra Brooks .... I thinknim may favor Ezra .. I know , it's not Heaven Hill , but anytime I've had it.. it's been exceptional

Actually it is highly suspected that Ezra Brooks is sourced from Heaven Hill,my palate concurs

Suddenly Texas has been blessed with lots of Weller juice.Picked up a Weller 12 right before Christmas at MSRP,$29.99, and that's almost unheard of these days.They want $150 at a rip off liquor store in Abilene(H&H Liquors,the owner is a schyster) that I refuse to do business with anymore.However the stores I frequent in Wichita Falls are honest and just do their standard mark up.That being said I been drinking lots of Weller Special Reserve,$32.99 for a 1.75L.It may not be on par with the 12 year old or Antique 107 but if you like a wheated bourbon it is these that all others are judged by.I've tried the other wheaters……..all Weller wannabe's in my humble opinion.

Cheers Mates

Weller is nonexistent in MD. If you find it, its priced stupidly...like $80 for a fifth of Special Reserve. I go to Columbus for work or passing through fairly often. Every grocery store sells it for $22. Occasionally you can score Antique 107 or 12yr too. I load the trunk when I go there.
