    I have used Evan Williams as my Bourbon of choice for a number of years. It is priced reasonably-but more importantly, I find it to have a good,robust taste,which makes it an excellent table-quality bourbon. Whether I drink it mixed with water,cola,egg nog ,or straight on the rocks,I am well satisfied with E.W. and plan to keep right on buying it.
