It’s #ThriftyThursday so let’s dive into luxrowdistillers new budget friendly offering in the ezrabrooksbourbon lineup. Ezra Brooks 99 is an intriguing option as I find 100ish proof bourbons have the possibility of striking this great balance of flavor, texture/mouthfeel and drinkability. If we’re able to find all that at a wallet friendly MSRP of $24.99; I’ll take it🙋🏼‍♂️

When I initially opened the bottle the nose was… underwhelming. It lacked the depth, complexity and boldness that I was hoping for. I poured a couple ounces in a glass and let it be for 20 minutes before revisiting. 

The nose, while at no point being bad, still left me wanting. It was soft, light and fairly one dimensional. Again, good but leaving me wishing there was just more to it. As I took a sip I said, okay - this is good. Definitely more going on palate wise, but still nothing overly complex. Now, I know we’re talking about the $25 price range so set your expectations accordingly, but even then… I still just want more. It had a sweetness, in a soft way. Traditional notes of vanilla and caramel, but little influence of age. The mouthfeel was pretty good, I will say and I enjoyed how it coated. As far as a finish, nothing much to speak of. 

As I sat with this and thought, “would I recommend this?” one thing kept coming up for me about this bourbon - unoffensive. It’s absolutely unoffensive. It’s good. It’s easy to drink. It’s not upsetting. For many people, at $25 that is a solid win! If you or someone you’re buying for is looking for that, I don’t think you can go wrong here. 

Now, for me.. I’d like some more complexity. I’m not afraid of getting a little weird. I’ll risk some funkiness for an interesting pour. But I get it, sometimes you wanna be able to sit down and throw a few back without thinking about it, without analyzing and without being concerned with how much you paid - those are the moments I’ll reach for this bottle. 

Have you tried Ezra Brooks 99?! If so, what were your thoughts?? Curious to hear others experiences🥃
