Review #1021 – Old Ezra 7yr Barrel Proof

Review #1021 | Bourbon Review #529 – Old Ezra 7yr Barrel Proof

The Schtick: This is a barrel proof release of what is most likely Heaven Hill distillate sourced by Luxco for the Ezra Brooks product line. It is age stated at 7 years old.

Distiller: Heaven Hill (Unconfirmed)

Bottler: Luxco

ABV: 58.5% ABV

Age: 7 Years

Nose: Corn, caramel, toffee and cloves. Some young graininess. Not a ton of ethanol.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Honey, corn, toffee, peanut brittle. Sweet vanilla. Some young grain, really nice ethanol presence though

Finish: Medium length. Corn, faint musty grain. Some cardboard. Toffee, pepper, cloves. Light bitterness on the finish.

Overall: Not bad, even great, but not exceptional. Great value for what it is, but it’s no Stagg Jr. I’m certainly impressed by it, though. It’s not often we see a new barrel proof offering coming in to the market as a non-Limited release, or at a really reasonable price point like this bottle is bringing. I think it’s positive to see in the market as a lot of people are flocking to try it. I’m certainly not disappointed with it and will likely seek out a replacement.

Thanks for reading!
