Quote is from another thread that won't permit a reply for some reason, but as a new bourbon drinker, Ezra B. Single Barrel 15 yr is the best bourbon by far that I have tried to date. But I have a question about the Heaven Hill remark. The bottle says "Bottled by Ezra Brooks Distilling Co. St. Louis, Mo". I assume that means that Ezra Brooks buys bourbon from a distiller and then bottles it under the Ezra Brooks name. Right? So Ezra Brooks is distilled by Heaven Hill distillery and bottled by Ezra Brooks, right?Thanks to the wonderful generosity of Ed (pepcycle) I am enjoying a generous pour of Ezra Brooks 15yo Single Barrel. I am enjoying my drink in my new Riedel bourbon glass. I must say that, while I expected this to be nice based on comments heard here, I am blown away by this one. Easily the best bourbon to come out of Heaven Hill IMHO. Thick caramel and Vanilla notes with some pleasant woodiness. I'll be exploring this one some more. And the best thing is, I just found a new stash just waiting for the picking. Oh happy day!
And other Heaven Hill brand names are Evan Williams and Elijah Craig, right? Am I missing any thing? I already like Elijah Craig 12 yr very much. Can I expect the other Elijah Craig and the Evan Williams brands to be similar to the Ezra Brooks?
