Old Ezra 7 yr 117 Proof

Recommended Posts

Harry in WashDC

OGD 114 is cheaper AND is a known quantity. OTOH, OE 7yr 101 is a secret pleasure of mine.  THX for the head's up.

Wow! I'll be all over that if I ever see it out here.  I like the 101 but it seems to be pretty rare on the west coast...

I would say the $40 for a 7 year 117 proof bottle of (what is likely HH) Bourbon seems like a fantastic value. @Harry in WashDC I tend to prefer OGD BIB over the 114, not sure why.

On the Joey Interest Scale for recent premium releases:  OE 6 yr 117 > Weller CYPB.

This is the sort of thing that I would have almost definitely grabbed a bottle of it came out a few years ago. I’m so burnt out by new releases and line extensions at this point. It’s fairly priced so I might buy a bottle but who knows.

So do I - OGD BIB does not call for water or ice, mostly, so it is easier to handle than 114; But, some nights 114 just hits the spot at about 105 or so proof.  RE: likely HH - Luxco does not dispute that Ezra Brooks and OE are HH, and at $40, I would be a buyer even though OE 101 compared to 117, like OGD BIB compared to 114, would be easier to handle.B)
