Ezra Brooks Cask Strength Nicholas Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon #1


Finally, my barrels from my Kentucky trip in January are beginning to arrive. I was beginning to think they were shipped to China & returning on the slow boat. I’ve been particularly anxious for the two that I picked at Lux Row with master distiller, John Rempi.

If you’re unfamiliar with Lux Row, they are in the bourbon capital of the world, Bardstown Kentucky & are best known for Ezra Brooks, Rebel, & Blood Oath. I was allowed to grab a barrel of two of their prized offerings but there’s not a whole lot to go around.

My first offering is a cask strength Ezra Brooks born on 9/21/2017. We found her on the 6th floor of warehouse 6 and it she at 127.3 proof when we tasted. I proofed this barrel slightly down to 120. As you know, I love high proof bourbon that drinks like low proof. This is the kind of bourbon that can get you in to a bit of trouble because you would never know its at 120 proof.
