    Even better news for those looking forward to this. I was told they have picked out not just 1 but 2 more barrels to be bottled at cask strength. Unfortunately no info on when they will get them in but he did say they were both picked out and in process. Until then I will just have to wait anxiously.

    I hope it's not a long wait. I am savoring my 1st edition bottle slowly but the level keeps dropping. Hope it's released before I finish my bottle.

    I feel your pain. I'm in the same boat.

    Re: Abraham Bowman Rye - Barrel-Strength

    Is there anybody that has some confirmation on whether this rye bottle is distilled a third time at Bowman’s and/or stored there the whole or part of the time?

    From what I have read within the BT/Saz and A.Smith Bowman websites as well as within various forum threads and/or blogs, it is my understanding that the spirit was initially distilled twice in KY, transported by tanker to A. Smith Bowman in VA where it will remain for the rest of the process as it is distilled a third time, barreled, aged and bottled.

    Re: Abraham Bowman Rye - Barrel-Strength

    A heads up for those of you that may have missed it on the first go-around: The Party Source has another bottling of the barrel-strength Bowman rye on the shelves.

    It's not listed on their website yet so those ordering by mail will have to call. If you do order, make sure you specify the Barrel-proof version --- they also carry the standard-issue 90 proof.

    Thanks for the heads-up! Barrel #2 is in fact on the shelf and going fast. Limit two bottles.

    Does this mean they will be doing a 3rd barrel?
