Ezra Brooks Black Label Whiskey Description:


Ezra Brooks bourbons are, from our standpoint, of somewhat mysterious origins. Our various nerd books are silent on the subject of "Ezra Brooks" despite the label promising 7 generations of expertise. The bourbons originate in Kentucky as "straight" bourbon, which requires at least 2 years of new barrel aging. They are also "charcoal mellowed" in a process somewhat similar to Tennessee whiskey such as Jack Daniels or George Dickel.

This is the 90 proof version of Ezra Brooks version and is "sour mash," meaning it uses the prior batches yeast to ferment the new batch in a continuing line.

According to a variety of sources (see, for example, the positive review and mention at Liquor Locusts as well as the Ezra Brooks Facebook site), the bourbon is produced at Heaven Hill for distribution by Luxco. This is supported by the filing at the Tax and Trade Bureau of the source in Kentucky but registered with the Missouri-based Luxco.
