  • Intro:

    This is an especially old "dusty" release of Ezra Brooks bourbon. It is 12 years old and was bottled in 1968.

  • Nose:

    Rich honey, cherry syrup. Tobacco, earthy richness, caramel. Crazy cherry notes, no ethanol whatsoever.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, no heat. Honey, almonds, amaretto, cherry syrup, caramel. Tobacco. Some faint earthiness. Overall, super rich.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich, no heat. Vanilla, oak, pepper, tobacco. Rich cherry presence, almost like luxardo syrup. The richness is astounding.

  • Overall:

    Incredibly solid and very enjoyable. I'd take this over the vast majority of the other dusty things I've had, save for maybe some of the older Old Fitzgeralds.

  • Score:

    8
