We’re getting a ton of questions about this one, so let’s clear up the confusion and provide some clarity on Ezra 7 Year Barrel Strength and Lux Row Distillers.

Who is Lux Row Distillers?

Lux Row is the brand behind Blood Oath, Rebel Yell, David Nicholson, and of course, Old Ezra. While the whiskeys on that list vary in popularity, you have likely seen them on shelves near you. The Rebel Yell 10 Year has been a great pour that many in the bourbon sippers community have thoroughly enjoyed.

Who Distilled Ezra 7 year if they (Lux Row) didn’t?

NDP’s, or Non-distiller producers don’t typically shout from the rooftops such details like where they source their distillate from… You know, since they’re working on building their own brand. With that said, considering their location in Bardstown, KY and the profile of the whiskey, it’s rumored that Ezra 7 and other Lux Row products are sourced from Heaven Hill.

NOSE

Fruit, honey, oak, spice and chocolate

PALATE

Is this the next Weller 12?

Yes and No

No

  • Ezra is only aged 7 years while Weller 12 is aged for 12 years
  • Weller 12 is a Buffalo Trace product and resembles Pappy Van Winkle
    • Which contributes immensely to the hype and scarcity
  • Weller 12 is 90 Proof while Ezra 7 Year is Barrel Proof  at 117 proof

Yes

  • Ezra 7 Year Barrel Strength has a flavor profile that appeals to the masses
  • Ezra has a $40 price tag that allows it to punch above the weight of the price tag
  • It is a buy it when you find it on the shelf at retail bourbon, no question

The bourbon world is becoming increasingly more chaotic as quality bottles are scooped up out of fear that they won’t be seen again. So, it’s always incredibly exciting to see new bottles hit the market that have the quality to back up the hype!
