Ezra Brooks Gains A 7 Year Old Rye Whiskey Variant

The Ezra Brooks American whiskey label, owned by Lux Row Distillers, recently debuted a new seven year old rye whiskey variant.

The new Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey, according to those behind it, features two rye mashbills (51% rye whiskey and 95% rye whiskey), is aged a full seven years and bottled at at full proof (114 proof, or 57% ABV). On top of this it is also “charcoal filtered for mellow flavor and a smooth finish.”

“With Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey, we’ve delivered a rye whiskey worthy of the Old Ezra label,” said Lux Row Distillers master distiller John Rempe in a prepared statement. “This tasty 7-year-old rye offers slightly sweet and oaky tones with hints of vanilla and honey, and it finishes with a warm touch of spice and tobacco. It’s certain to become a favorite among both rye fans and fans of the Ezra Brooks brand family.”

The launch of this seven year rye “comes on the heels of Old Ezra 7-Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey’s recent “Best Overall Bourbon” win at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Like its bourbon namesake, Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey features a high-end, custom-designed bottle. Its green, jewel-toned label is highlighted by a 7-year age statement and gold and copper foil accents.”

A limited allocation of 3,000 six-pack cases of Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey is being made available for this release, with each bottle pricing around $80 per 750 ml bottle.
