    Old Ezra 101, where have you gone????

    So my usual source of my standby favorite Old Ezra 7/101 tells me it's on back order and they don't know when they will get more. I went on the new Ezra Brooks website to find that it is not listed on there- Only the 90 black label and the Single Barrel are listed. I know Ezra Brooks is a Luxco brand and non-distiller so production is based on availability of correct source whiskey, but the exclusion of the 101 on the website and the "We have no idea if we're going to get any more" response from the distributor has me a bit worried. At $17/bottle, it was one of the best deals in good whiskey out there. The only thing close is the Old Bardstown Estate 101, and that's a bit more expensive and hard to get! I've tried emailing Luxco about the Old Ezra, but I have yet to get a response. Anyone have any help on this one??
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    I've been seeing it pop up in more places recently around here, actually, so I don't think it's being discontinued or anything. Take heart!

    It has been very difficult to find in Lexington, too. Was told that the big liquor stores in town would not be carrying it anymore because it doesn't sell, but I've seen it in the surrounding areas. I hope that's a sign of it staying.

    I have found that Luxco doesn't respond to emails. Why have a contact us link if you're not going to respond back?

    I get mine in Ohio, and the website still shows availability in the usual places. Headed over there in a few weeks, will check.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I wonder if there is some way to accurately find out what's going on with the product.

    It's just like every other non-distiller producer......everything's a secret.
