is Ezra Brooks the same as Evan Williams 7YO?

I guess I should buy me a bottle to find out.

from Wikipedia:
Ezra Brooks is a St. Louis, Missouri product which has previously been compared by its own print advertising to Jack Daniel's. It is still bottled at 90 proof but is no longer distributed in very elaborate bottles resembling decanters. It is sold in bottles with a cork cap. The nature of its aging and the time over which it is aged combine to give it a rich, dark brown color. The taste is considered to be smooth by some connoisseurs.

So I just went to the liquor store to get some Ezra Brooks and found they have this Old Ezra 101 seven year old. Now this was new. I ended up buying some Elmer T. Lee which I just tasted. And they also had the high proof Kentucky Spirity there. But I did not buy the Ezra Brooks 7YO 101 and thought the regular Ezra Brooks was also 7YO.

However I will say this Elmer T. Lee is good and I am comparing it to Wild Turkey 101 and will say that they are both good.

But Elmer T. Lee was a bit pricey at twenty five bucks, but the Ezra Brooks is also pricey at 15 with the EW at 9. So I am wondering if this 101 is seriously better than the regular Ezra or EW.
