Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch

"One world, Many Malts!" Evan Williams 1783 is on my TOP Shelf. My goal is to help you find the best whisky for the occasion. I realized that most people are looking to celebrate an occasion but don't know where to start. Hence, I am dividing the blog into two segments-

First segment(Mostly not available on google search)
Occasions, tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel.

FAQs(SingleMaltLives has the answer)

1. I feel good and need a drink but don't know what I am looking for. Can you help?  
2. I want to surprise my significant other who loves whisky. What do I buy?
3. I need the best bottle of whisky for an occasion. Where do I start? 
4. Are there any alternates if this bottle is not available?
5. Any tips to make the best use of this particular bottle?
6. Is there any food pairings?
7. Are there any whiskies that are better for specific weather like summer or winter?

Even Williams continues to amaze me with its high quality yet affordable price. I am highly impressed by this small batch and recommend everyone to try it.

Alternates- Buffalo Trace(similar ABV and taste)
Cocktail- Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Classic Evan Sour
Feel- Like I hit the jackpot 
Food Pairing- Don't go with too spicy food, that will interfere with the taste of this robust whiskey.

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)
Vital Stats, Tasting info
1. How does this whisk(e)y taste like?
2. Any information about the distillery? 
3. Where does it come from?

The product label reads says Evan Williams earned the title of Kentucky's first distiller in 1783. Of course, it has its own place in the cutthroat world of Kentucky Bourbon. This is where the name comes from. 
This particular small batch is blended by choosing some barrels after a few years of maturation. I believe the magic happens at this stage. Now, please enjoy my tasting notes.
