Info on Old Ezra 15yr old

Postby grunyun » Tue Jun 29, 2010 11:25 am

Greetings:

In the 70's my uncle's friend was going through a nasty divorce and needed a place to stay. My grandfather agreed to let him live at his place for a couple months to get on his feet. My uncle's friend was saving money as expected and offered my grandfather a bottle of Old Ezra 15 yr old Bourbon as payment. My grandpa happily accepted and put it on his display.

My uncle died,my grandfather died,My father recently passed away and I inherited the unopened bottle still in the wooden box with the little tag that goes with it. The bottle is from around 1976 I think my dad said. I have been searcing everywhere for information on the particular piece. I guess it was in a limited quantity,supposed to be at the time a top notch American drink and the distiller sold the company to another,but that's about all I know.I have never seen anyone selling or mentioning an unopened bottle of it,only empty bottles or the boxes for sale etc. I'd just like to know if it's a good piece and anything about it. I took a couple of pics of it. Thanks for any responses :D

Maybe try StraightBourbon.com or BourbonEnthusiast.com. There are a number of older threads on the StraightBourbon forum mentioning Old Ezra 15, so there will likely be people there familiar with it.

Thanks for the info.

I actually tried those two places first before here. They will not accept registration from free e-mail accounts yahoo,aol, hotmail,gmail,etc. I only have hotmail and gmail. I have no idea what they consider a valid e-mail address if they will not accept hotmail or gmail.It is all I have had and all I know. *shrug

This is the only whisky forum site I have found that will register using hotmail,gmail,etc. I am sure someone knows something about it. I am just playing detective trying to find the person or forum. Finding info on the bottle is going to lead me to drink it to calm my nerves ! lol
