    Charles, Joe Dangler confirmed with me this morning that all the barrels were bottled in Virginia, not Kentucky.

    Best we keep the data points correct rather than to take an Obamanesque approach to what is important at any moment..... LOL!!!!

    Re: New bottles (Bowman)

    The official statement I received from Buffalo Trace is as follows:

    These whiskies are distilled at Buffalo Trace twice and then A.Smith Bowman distilled them a third time using their unique still. The barrels are filled and aged in Virginia. Everything is bottled here at BTD.
    I have asked for a further clarification in light of cigarnv's post, especially since he apparently believes the President of the United States is involved in this massive coverup.

    Now we have Bourbon Gate. Didn't take long to raise the tax on it then confuse the situation with reterick... Yup... Sounds like a politician may be in the mix.

    Joe is right, my source at BT was wrong. Misunderstanding, I'm told. Apologies all the way around. Everything was bottled at Bowman.

    Re: New bottles (Bowman)

    I'm now sampling the Abraham Bowman Rye. Nice! I didn't expect to enjoy it this much because I don't normally like the very high rye such as WTRR-rye. But this isn't super heavy rye. Very flavorful, good wood, nice earthy aftertaste. Definitely recommend, especially if you like rye.

    Good to hear, although ggilbertva reports the bottles cigarnv opened was not so great; at least, not given how much they cost. Care to weigh in guys?

    Re: New bottles (Bowman)

    I wonder how the new rye compares to, say, Baby Saz? It just occurred to me that perhaps this is BT's first attempt to use some of the rye they found aging at Tom Moore.
