When I spotted Ezra Brooks 99 Bourbon on the shelf I knew I had to snag a bottle. This was a new to the market 99 proof Bourbon at a price point of $25 regular price. I had heard good things so I figured it was best to check it out for myself. The website touts a high rye mash bill which falls squarely in my wheelhouse. The aroma is filled with oak, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar, and hints of black pepper. The flavor has a distinct spicy cinnamon, more toasted oak, and delicious caramel and brown sugar. The finish lasts with more caramel, black pepper, cinnamon, and very light oak which all fades fantastically into the aftertaste. It’s a fantastic bottle at an affordable price. Hopefully it’s overlooked for a very long time and will be readily available all the time. Snag yourself a bottle before people realize it’s out there and it becomes gone baby gone.
