Ezra Brooks Kentucky Straight Bourbon 90 Proof
Ezra Brooks // Kentucky, USA
Production started on Ezra Brooks around the 1950s by the Medley Distillery. Today the brand is owned by Luxco. Its mash bill consists of corn, rye, and malted barley. This Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey bears no age statement and is bottled at 90 proof. In 2018, Luxco opened Lux Row Distillers in Bardstown, KY so expect the bourbon to be made there in the future.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.

"This is a mouthful. The bouquet is a sandalwood platter serving up a bed of toasted grain, pressed vanilla, and peanut brittle. The palate is juicy and miraculously balances a circus of extreme flavors, clarified butter initially, roasted peanuts, char marks, vanilla, and wood tannins on the finish. This is one worth sipping all evening."
