About Old Ezra 7 Year Old Barrel Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey
In the late 1950s, the Medley Distillery began producing a bourbon named Ezra Brooks in Owensboro, Kentucky. The distillery, which was founded in 1901, traced its origins back to the birth of Kentucky bourbon; while Reverend Elijah Craig is usually credited with producing the first bourbon whiskey at his mill in Lebanon in 1789, the Medley family began distilling whiskey at the same time in the adjacent county in Kentucky. In fact, except during the thirteen years during which distillation was outlawed in the United States, a member of the Medley family has been operating a distillery continuously since 1812.
The Old Ezra brand is owned by St. Louis, Missouri-based, family-owned Luxco. The bourbon is currently distilled by Lux Row Distillers, made using a seven generations old recipe. Their Kentucky straight bourbon is distilled from a base of sour mash and charcoal filtered following distillation. The spirit is then aged for seven years in new, charred white oak barrels.
The casks contribute a medium-full body to the bourbon and provide it with hints of oak, caramel, honey, chocolate, and orange zest. This Ezra Brooks Barrel Strength is bottled at a high octane 117 proof. You can expect spicy notes bourbon notes, sweetness and a touch of heat on the tongue.
