So back in May I posted about Old Ezra Bourbon and how it was 20 beans for a 7-year-old 101 proof bottle. At the very end I stated, “It would work well for a mixed libation,” and wow did I ever hit the nail on the head. I think I should take it one step further, this is the perfect Bourbon for a mixed drink. Some may say you shouldn’t worry about what you put into a mixed drink, but in truth it does matter, the flavor of the spirit will come through. Well this one by itself lacks character, but in a drink it blossoms and blooms. If you are mixing something you should seek this out and make it part of your bar. I didn’t realize how much I have enjoyed it until I noticed the bottle was almost empty. Partner this with some Powell & Mahoney and you have a winning combination!
