    Re: Abraham Bowman Rye - Barrel-Strength

    How come I can't find a dang thing anywhere searching on google for the 136 proof bottle. Everything is 90 proof.

    Is party source the only one to get this version or something?

    Yes.... It is a Party Source release only.... And probably will not be done again...

    I ended up getting in contact with Jay yesterday and he is a very nice guy and helped out a ton with different bourbons including this one he selected. It sounds like a rye whiskey I cannot let go, will be purchasing after I hear from him on another bourbon.

    Just picked up a bottle of this last week. Haven't cracked it yet but I believe this is a special bottle(s) to have in the bunker.

    Please let me know asap on what you think. I would really appreciate, hesitant to pay $70 for this bottle without any reviews or knowledge of notes and real power. Thanks!

    Funny that when this was released in Virginia only about a year ago there wasn't much excitement about it. Now it seems like the hot, new thing.

    It only takes a spark to set a fire, look what Frank Sinatra did for Jack Daniels.

    Bingo, never had the 90proof so I can't compare this to anything. That being said though, I am a big barrel proof type and while I have not yet pulled the trigger and it is hard for me on a random $70 bottle I am all about taking the plunge. Just waiting for that review or two on here from fellow members.
