    Question Can you still buy Ezra B 12 year? HELP!

    This bourbon will always be important to me, because it is my "gateway bourbon." This is the bourbon that got me excited and then hooked on all the real possible flavors that bourbon has to offer...and the best part is, when it's compared to bottles that are 2 or 3x as expensive, I still think it's better.

    To be honest, I think Ezra B is the best bourbon I've had under $80 a bottle....but now I can't find it ANYWHERE. Does anyone know where a guy like me can score a bottle or two of Ezra B? I'm talking about the hand labeled, blue waxed Ezra B 12 year, with the blue and gold trimmed tassle on the bottle....anyone know what I'm tawkin' 'bout?

    If anyone could help me find a way to get my hands on this, why I sure would be grateful!

    Thanks!

    B

    I saw a bottle in Buffalo, NY last weekend. You joined a week too late.

    It is still out there, but you will need an assist to get it. I saw a number of bottles of it in South Carolina last summer as well.

    Good luck on your quest!

    Is it out of production?

    I think I saw one last week here in BG, but I am not certain.

    When I said that he would need an assist to get it, I was thinking he was in Oregon where they don't allow shipments from stores (IIRC). I don't know if Warshington has the same restrictions.

    I believe it is available here in Oregon, but I have to warn you the last bottle I had was horrible! This being a bottler only single barrel product you are going to experience a wide variation in the product and may find you hate your next bottle. I'll check a liquor store this week sometime to see if it is still here and would suggest you try others; however if you are still hellbent on getting it PM me.

    Oh, and I took out your link to that other site. We all know what you're talking about trust me.

    Wow, thank you everyone!!!! I really didn't expect y'all to jump on this so quick and offer to help me out, especially to a newbie. Thank you, everyone!

    One question comes up though...what exactly does a "bottler only single barrel product" mean, specifically? I thought that this whiskey was made by Ezra Brooks, where they pick the best tasting barrel they have, and then put it away for 12....where am I going wrong on this? Any info would be greatly appreciated....

    As you can tell, I'm still a newbie to a lot of this stuff...I am pumped to learn more about bourbon though, so feel free to lecture/wax rhapsodic about the whole thing!

    Cheers,

    B~
