Ezra Brooks Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
guest,
Considered an acceptable substitute for Jack Daniels, Ezra Brooks is an extremely solid whiskey with a rich history see here https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.thirtyonewhiskey.com/whiskey-review-ezra-brooks-kentucky-sour-mash-bourbon-whiskey/) . More whiskey drinkers need to realize that a better bottle can be purchased for 15 dollars as opposed to 75. Ezra Brooks is the epitome of a good budget bourbon Nose- Vanilla Caramel tropical fruit (banana) hint of rye spice Palate- nothing different from nose Finish-medium symmetrical more rye spice tad thin overall. 7.9/10

Richard,
I was expecting more with such a high proof. The flavors are there, caramel dominates. I was hoping for a little more oak and spice. I don't think it's worth much more than $50 & certainly not over $100.

A great, flavorful bourbon full of peanuts and spice. A great pick-up at retail which is about $45.

Really good for an 11$ bottle

Hunter,
For the price and age this is disappointing. In a blind tasting against cheap bottled-in-bond whiskeys, this lost. You are better off buying 2 cheap bottles or another moderately priced bourbon.

Burton,
This bruiser has an alcohol burn. But behind that are the expected bourbon flavors. Nice texture, long finish. This is a cost effective high proof barrel strength offering for when you want to spar with your whiskey.

Sweet cherry and spice smell. Smooth caramel and oak taste

Sean,
I picked up a store pick here in CO, and just had a single small pour. So far, agree with the fairly noticeable oak and a bit of vanilla notes, but missing a few of the other flavors on the spiral. Will have to see if this opens up a bit more as i work through the bottle. Store pick at 107 proof was $30, which seems like a steal based on what I'm seeing in other comments. Seeing a quality bourbon at barrel strength, or at least >100 proof and below $40 is very hard to find these days. Several barrel proofs are running at 2x this price. I'd say, pick this one up!

One of my favorites!

Matthew,
Very reminiscent of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof but slightly tamer. One notable difference is a subtle nutty note -- not peanut like Beam/Knob Creek but more pecan or walnut. Very hard to find but a good value if you can get it for MSRP. I found my only bottle at a small independent store for $45 and was very pleased with the purchase.

I found it to be somewhat green in maturity, the oak notes were grassy. Letting it settle over a rock calmed some of the earthy notes.

Chris,
Fair nose, sweet front end, hot finish, even hotter with water. After letting it air out much more caramel, good.

Robert,
A fantastic barrel strength bourbon, very sweet up front followed by a pleasant nuttiness (which is also present in the nose), eventually ending with some woodiness. Full mouth feel and a long finish. A small gem and the price is great (just purchased for $50 at a small liquor store). Highly recommend for any high proof bourbon enthusiast.

Beautiful powerful nose, a sweet vanilla nuttiness on the palate.

Josh,
Absolutely a great barrel proof drink. My first drink seemed to have a lot of bite. However, after that the flavor really comes out and it becomes a drink very hard to get away from.

Great bourbon for my fellow proof hounds out there

Dat,
Really packs a punch of complexity from the first nose with hints of creme brûlée to the full mouth feel tingled with spices to the long lingering finality of warmth and satisfaction

This is one of my favorite bourbons to drink. Its strong and has a smooth flavor. Taste a lot of nuttiness towards the end. Starting to be one of my favorites
