Ezra Brooks is a brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. It is primarily bottled at 40% abv (80 U.S. proof) or 45% abv (90 U.S. proof).[2]

The Ezra Brooks brand is owned by Luxco of St. Louis, Missouri (formerly the David Sherman Company); which does not own a distillery. Ezra Brooks is distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky by Heaven Hill Distilleries for Luxco.

The brand web site says it has "a medium to full body with a rich sweetness of vanilla, honey, and a hint of chocolate".[2]
