Purchased at the Evan Williams store in Louisville. Love the flavor and smoothness. Haven't been able to find in any local stores in my area.

Drinking this for decades. I hear it's being discontinued (?). I really really hope not. This is bar none the greatest bourbon for the modest price. It drinks better than most bourbons 3x the cost. It's cotton candy juice for grown ups. please E.W., don't discontinue!!!

I love this bourbon. However I'm disappointed it will no longer be available in Michigan.

This wonderful whiskey is no longer available in the continental united states except for one state. Should definitely bring it back to the rest of us to enjoy!

I drink this bourbon on the rocks, which to me really enhances the flavor. I buy it anytime I can find it.

I have enjoyed EW Single Barrel almost exusively for the past 18 years. I was a scotch drinker previously until I was introduced to this fine spirit at a VFW Bull and Oyster Roast in 2004. Even with the mania that has taken over Bourbon in the past 5-10 years, this has always been my go to. I just wish I had known about the distiller's intention to stop selling this outside of Kentucky in mid-2022... I would have filled my cabinet! Now I'm left scrounging for a suitable replacement.

My favorite bourbon period. Other brands that cost much more do not compare. The aromas on the nose, and the robust and rich flavor, will always pick up a bottle wherever I see it.

I only drink it straight in a brandy glass, anything else would be an abomination

Starts with a beautiful copper color, very nice nose and the taste of a smooth old age bourbon. Excellent flavor and sweetness merge into a great sipping spirit, honestly love it straight up! Can't believe the price for the most excellent 7 y/o bourbon!!! Buy with confidence and make friends.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
