Stronger, better, luckier Straight Bourbon.
 
Ezra Brooks, conceived and forged in Kentucky, has been making happy hours happier with bona fide American Bourbon since the King sang about loving too much (it's 1957). The brand was created by Frank Silverman in Lawrenceburg until the business went under in the 1970s. In 1993, Luxco reanimated the beloved Whiskey-maker and moved it to Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown. The amber Spirit is born in a 43-foot custom copper still and it ends up in new charred oak barrels at 125 Proof max. Although its older brothers boast about tradition, Ezra Brooks had a couple of cameos in Hollywood: there's a billboard in The Sting with Newman and Redford, while Gary Oldman grabs a bottle of Ezra Brooks in Léon. It's a true American star with real roots.
 
The barrel strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey proudly named Old Ezra is a 101 Proof potion with luck etched in its DNA. The corn, rye and barley concoction that was charcoal-mellowed spent seven years in new charred white oak barrels and the sweet floral notes are in cahoots with tones of vanilla, cinnamon and fine wood. The high proof suits this rich and full Bourbon as it promises more bang for your buck. It works as a sipper or in a classy Old Fashioned.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

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!

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.

Erik,
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
