Ezra Brooks Straight Rye Whiskey Review

Ezra Brooks Straight Rye Whiskey I was lucky enough to be gifted for review a Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar and this Ezra Brooks Straight Rye Whiskey is one of the drams from that calendar.

December is one of the busiest months of the year for me at work so i didnt get through all the whiskies as i had wanted, so reviews will be interspersed with others.

warming, sweet, spicy, oily, a bit of everything and a really reasonable price tag, this is a dram i could happily sit with for some time and really did enjoy it a lot, one of my favourites from the whole set.

Available to buy from Master of Malt

Thanks to Drinks by the Dram for the calendar.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Lovely floral notes, dandelion, juniper, lots of juicy sweet honeydew melon and waxy vanilla pods, the the spices come in like a dusting of 5 spice, mouthwatering theres a nuts and seed element to this straight away, wholemeal bread, ground black pepper, menthol and eucalyptus lozenges, almost some fresh mint in there also as it sits in the glass

Palate

Sweet easy going, floral, dandelions, green grass and sweet honey, hints of pecan pie, gentle warming spices, tasty tasty stuff Rye is my marmite - sometimes i love it sometimes i don't this to me isn't the spicy rye i was expecting but more the tame menthol, soothing, relaxing type of dram i get on with, some artificial sweetener like notes and some of that cracking chocolate sauce for ice cream

Finish

Sweet honey, warm spices gentle artificial sweetner and edges of vanilla ice cream
