Ezra Brooks Single Barrel Bourbon (Barrel-7389998 - VULTURE) - Bourbon Pursuit & Keg N Bottle Private Barrel Pick 750 ml
On May 18th, 2021 Kenny, Ryan, Paul, and Jason met up at Mammy's Kitchen & Bar in Bardstown for their traditional Pre-Selection meal. They needed to make sure they had a full belly, as they got ready to select a whopping 6 barrels from a total of 12 samples (3 Ezra's, and 3 Rebels).
All of the samples were contract distilled by Heaven Hill and were between 4 & 5 years old at the time of selection and ranged in proof from 122-128 (Ezra barrelled in Spring 2016, and Rebel barrelled in Spring 2017). The team had no problem isolating 6 terrific barrels and was so impressed by how well the barrels were drinking at that age. We hope you enjoy collecting all 6.

- Nose - This nose opens with clean, sweet soft oak tones, ginger candy, and browned butter.
Taste - The palate stirs up rich confectionery sweetness, towing vanilla and brown sugar notes mixed with the soft essence of cinnamon sticks.
- Finish - While the palate hits big, spice dissipates across the finish with nods to butterscotch candies and Juicy Fruit gum lingering far after.
