Good rye (and I'm assuming it's good based on the strength of those past releases) is just not that easy to come by these days. With that said, I haven't opened the bottle...I just have too many open already. I am also very curious to hear others' opinions!
    The 90 proof was sitting next to the barrel proof ryes at TPS and have been there for months. I sat there scratching my head when I got the barrel proof the 90 was exactly the same price and right next to each other. I almost picked up the wrong one. They must have just put them on the website. I would assume it is fantastic whiskey just a but not going to spend $72 on 90 proof right now. To many others on the to do list.

    Re: Abraham Bowman BOURBON

    Very nice bourbon that is quickly moving off the shelves. The gift shop at Bowman is sold out. It will be interesting to see if the 2012/2013 18YO release will be as good.... for sure it will be a very small offering.

    Are you sure there is going to be a 2012/2013 release? I called the distillery a few weeks ago looking for a bottle and they were simply apologetic that they were out...and then up-sold the rye. They made it sound like the 18 yr was a one time fluke thing.

    Tough to be sure about anything in this business.... but I think Abraham is going to be around for a while.... hanging out with Parker , Geo. T, William Larue, EH and the rest of the gang who seem to come out of hiding at least once a year...

    The "Abraham" line, at least, is listed as a regular offering on their website. My guess is that it will change, depending on what awesome stuff they've got, and because there's not a definitive description of it. Still, something exciting on a regular basis.

    Re: Abraham Bowman BOURBON

    I still think they picked something extra special for the first release. I hope not, so that we can enjoy this as much in the future, but we shall see.

    Really getting tough to find. VA state controlled ABC received a few cases (6 bottles per case) but I'm finding extremely limited distribution to a limited amount of their stores.

    I was at the distillery a couple of weeks ago and shown 7 barrels of AA barreled in 1993 ready to be dumped. Was told each had about 10 gallons in it. Was also told it would happen soon.

    BTW, it's a great tour with Truman Cox, so if you are near I would visit.

    That is too cool - do you know how long the barrels have been in Virginia?
