    Never mind. I've confirmed that it's BT rye, not Tom Moore. Not that that's a bad thing.

    Re: New bottles (Bowman)

    Was out shopping with my mom and I made her stop at the local ABC to see if there was anything new and they had all three of these whiskies in! i wanted to walk out with all of them but that would have been too expensive, plus my mom reminded me x-mas is around the corner so i just picked up the small batch. I was suprised she said that because usually she thinks im crazy for spending more than 20-25 bucks on a bottle of whiskey, and even more strange she accually listened and seemed intrigued when i explaned the difference between the bottles and why i have to have all of them.

    So hopefully for x-mas i will have the other 2, the manager said i was the first to buy one of these so they should have plenty.

    I will be in Va Beach next week for Thanksgiving what ABC store did you see these. We have yet to get any in.

    Ask, at present most stores are keeping it in the back until a display comes in. They will sell if you ask for it.

    Is it "worth the cost" comes down to what one values. I value sampling a variety, so cost isn't so important on the first bottle. Others balance quality versus $$, but what determines quality is different for each individual. If one wants a flavor sort of like WT101 or Bulleitt but with more age, range, wood, and willing to pay triple the $$ for it, then Bowman rye may be a consideration for sampling. If one likes the wood of Pappy 20yo but willing to sacrifice roundness/complexity for price, then the Bowman single barrel is a consideration. Several of my friends have bought multiple bottles and they're happy with the purchase. I enjoyed all three. I'll pick up a couple more bottles.

    I'm sure your Mom is making calls now to arrange the intervention.
