Review from BuffaloBill (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1385, Created:20081209190338) View discussion on this review.
Purchased at:Winchendon, MA (a lucky find)
Purchased for:$34
Info on this bottle:EWSB 1993 - Barreled on 8-18-1993 / Barrel #267 - Bottled on 7-21-2003
Nose:Elegant. This is absolutely stunning. I opened the bottle 20 minutes ago and it's already unfolding. Can't get my nose out of the glass... I don't know where to begin. It's one of the finest bottles in my collection to date. Rare bouquet. Perfectly balanced. Vanilla, oak, perhaps a touch of coriander.
Taste:A ripe and mellow medley of fruit that rivals anything in my line-up. Gorgeous legs. Wow... heather honey, like the old Smith Brothers cough drops. This is so well-crafted and balanced that it's powerfully compelling. A TEN!
Finish:More, more, more... what a find. Delicate, with a slow and perfect crescendo. Long. As in very long...
Overall:5-Star Bourbon at its best. It seldom gets better... BB

Review from Brewer (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 57)
Purchased at:
Info on this bottle:Barreled on11/17/93; Bottled on 1/6/03 from barrel number 45
Nose:I detect apricots and peach aromas, along with the scent I get while walking in a pine forest.
Taste:There is a fruit flavor, but it tastes like citrus. I don't detect the apricot/peach that I sensed in the aroma. There is a bit of a lingering pine that comes through in the taste.
Finish:Oak is noted in the finish which is medium in length.
Overall:This bottling is more refined and milder than the '92 version. This is a favorable change. While swirling in the glass, long legs form and hang on the sides of the glass.

Review from Mark (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 51)
Purchased at:
Info on this bottle:Barreled on11/17/93; Bottled on 1/6/03 from barrel number 45
Nose:Light and floral with underlying fruit notes present
Taste:Bordering on the sweet side it has a decent balance between both sweet and spicy. Alos noted was a bit or corn. I also detected a 'rosy' floral taste. Still a bit on the thin side and 'oily' and still not thick or creamy tasting like many other products.
Finish:Oak is predominant, but a bit milder than the 92' Vintage.
Overall:An improvement over the 92'. This one formed nice long trails on the inside of the glass.
