Lux Row Introduces Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey

MGP owned Lux Row has announced Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey with a limited allocation of 3,000 six-pack cases. 

Lux Row Distillers master distiller John Rempe says: 
With Old Ezra 7-Year Straight Rye Whiskey, we’ve delivered a rye whiskey worthy of the Old Ezra label. This tasty 7-year-old rye offers slightly sweet and oaky tones with hints of vanilla and honey, and it finishes with a warm touch of spice and tobacco. It’s certain to become a favorite among both rye fans and fans of the Ezra Brooks brand family.

Old Ezra 7-Year Rye features two rye mashbills (51% rye whiskey and 95% rye whiskey), is aged a full seven years and is bottled at full proof (114 proof, or 57% alcohol). It carries an MSRP of $79.99. I've reached out to Lux Row to see if this will be available in Ohio and will update this article if I hear back. 

My Take

I could not be more excited for a release. Old Ezra 7 Bourbon is one of my all time favorite bourbons and the highest rated of all I've reviewed so far scoring an 85.5 out of 100. The price is a little high for the rye, but I'm still buying on sight based on the Old Ezra brand quality. If any of my two friends see this in the stores, please pick me up a bottle and I'll pay you back!
