    Pros: Good Price, Good Quality
    Cons: Performs as well as any of them

    Summary: “Whiskey means “water of life.” aqua vitae, from the Latin Bourbon is the all-American drink. It is as American as apple pie and almost as popular. When Americans moved across the mountains following the Revolution, they found ... read more

    Pros: Price is right .  Good flavor.  No strong aftertaste.
    Cons: Just a little harshness when taken straight.

    Summary:  I am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but Ezra Brooks Bourbon tastes good to me.  It is a tad harsh when drunk neat, but at this price ($18 for 1.75 liter) it compares well with Evan Williams, another ... read more

  • A very good basic bourbon. Not the best, but pretty good. Exceptional value.

    Jul 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 90 proof, solid bourbon flavor, excellent value, competes with much more expensive bourbons
    Cons: A little harsh, not at its best neat, can be difficult to find.

    Summary: I think I may just have a soft spot in my heart for this bourbon because I used to drink a lot of it in my college days when it was a decent bourbon that I could afford. While I've moved up in the world, to a certain extent, I still generally keep Ezra ... read more

  • honest 90 proof

    Mar 21, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: -Cost -Mixing -45% alcohol (a more traditional bourbon) -Unlockable aroma with water
    Cons: -Your snooty friends will hate it -Slightly harsh -Lacks total refinement

    Summary: Ezra Brooks sits in the middle of the shelf between whatever your local rotgut whiskey happens to be (in my area it's Broker's and Monarch) and the top shelf (Maker's, Knob Creek, various others made in small batches). Ezra outclasses everything else ... read more

  • Great with water and ice

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great flavor, moderately priced, well aged, overall good quality. Great with water and ice.
    Cons: Strongish flavor probably unsuitable for mixing with cola. So good you might drink too much.

    Summary: Get yourself a tumbler, toss in a hefty shot of this fine Kentucky bourbon, add four ice cubes, and top it up with water. The result is a wonderful tasting drink that is perfect for sipping. It results in a slightly sweet drink with no harshness, and has ... read more

  • An adept little bourbon

    Nov 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent Price, very clean, very straightforward and effective Bourbon.
    Cons: Nothing overwhelmingly distinctive about the flavor.

    Summary: Whenever I go to the liquor store to purchase alcohol, I usually try to pick out a new bourbon, something I haven't tried before. I'm not wealthy enough to go for the single-barrel stuff, or any of those bottles that come packaged in their own wooden ... read more

    Pros: Price, flavor and the cork is a nice touch.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I must admit that I prefer Makers Mark to Ezra Books. Now that the truth is out I will continue with my review. The first point that should be made is price. A 750ML bottle of Ezra can be found for less than nine dollars. Many Bourbons of far less ... read more

  • Better than Ezra

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quite cheap - very drinkable for a session bourbon
    Cons: Strong - unrefined as a bourbon compared to many others

    Summary: Ezra Brooks Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. For some reason, the name just sounds cool. I saw it on the liquor store shelf in green and black labels, and I thought how appropriate the name "Ezra Brooks" sounded for hard liquor. Too bad this ... read more

    Pros: Well...let's see....I'm still thinking.
    Cons: Let my dog sniff it and he bit me.

    Summary: Bad stuff. No need to read any further if you don't want to. I am a Bourbon drinker. I drink it straight the way it is meant to be enjoyed. Ezra Brooks is just plain bad. Smell it and you will think you got it from a pharmacy. It would make ... read more

  • High flavor, low cost. And you get a cork!?!? It must be good.

    Pros: High quality to price ratio
    Cons: It tastes bad

    Summary: This isn't the greatest, but for the money, it is. You get a cork, too, which always makes you look high class, even when you are puking in somebody else's bushes. Get a liter for about 11 bucks...can't beat that. And it tastes better than heaven hill or ... read more

    Cons: One of the Worst tasting bourbons.

    Summary: I'm a big bourbon drinker. Bourbon is the only style of whiskey I will drink. And I've tried very many different brands. Ezra Brooks is a lower priced bourbon.......not the cheapest, but in the top 10 of the cheapest priced. It's ... read more

    Pros: Great price, good taste and the pleasent feeling lingers.
    Cons: None at all

    Summary: I'm certainly a novice here having been a vodka man for the last 20 years or so but after moving to a colder climate I decided to try some straight whiskey after many years. With my apologies to the connisours here I can't afford the high priced brands. ... read more

    Pros: Strong, so doesn't lose flavor over melting ice.
    Cons: It's not makers or knob creek, but what were you expecting?

    Summary: The bourbon my father always drank; now I know why.Less sweet than Jack Daniels, more flavorful than Jim Beam, better and cheaper than both.For a very rich & strong manhattan, that you can leave ice in for half N hour and still tastes good, ... read more

    Pros: Great taste, great quality, great price.
    Cons: Not found in many stores.

    Summary: I've been drinking Ezra for 20 years or so. It's a great quality whiskey. I have a cousin that thinks Wild Turkey is the good stuff. He always blew me a bunch of crap for getting that "cheap sheet". So I had him do a blind taste test one time. And ... read more

    Pros: Not bad when you want reasonable taste and not a heavy price.
    Cons: Needs a good cigar and a non ocassion to be well appreciated.

    Summary: Get er done pretty much covers this bourbon. Would not suggest it straight but with a little water on ice it tain't bad for the money. Probably won't make any good marks with the guests till you've already got them rolled on the good stuff. I like it ... read more

    Pros: Price, taste, strength, packaging, it's bourbon
    Cons: Not as good as pricey bourbon

    Summary: I love Ezra Brooks. It's cheap, it tastes good, it's 90 proof, it has a cork, what's not to like. The only bourbon I know of that can compete at this price is Evan, and anyone who drinks whiskey has had enough Evan to get a little bit bored with it. ... read more
