Description

Angel’s Envy Port Finished Bourbon begins with Kentucky. We painstakingly oversee every step of the process, guiding each batch’s aging and conditioning. We blend our handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 10 barrels at a time, and typically age it on the upper floors of the warehouse for up to 6 years. While we lose about 5% of the spirit each year to evaporation, or “the Angel’s Share,” what’s left behind after we’ve has finished is truly worthy of envy. Once it’s deemed ready, we finish the spirit in port casks, adding subtle nuances that enhance the flavor without challenging it. Our port finishing process lasts between three to six months depending on taste. We use 60-gallon ruby port barrels made from French oak and imported directly from Portugal. This creates a whiskey of unprecedented smoothness, sweetness and balance.

Awards:

Beverage Testing Institute Rating 4.7

Pale amber color. Aromas of fruity caramel, raisin cake, vanilla custard, and lather with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a warming charcoal mineral, spiced plum, and peppery spice finish. A fine fireside sipper or cocktail choice.

LA Whisk(e)y Society Rating B-
The nose is full of sweet, floral notes. It's like a rose garden. The palate is also very floral and perfumy. There is a very light character to it.

Wine Enthusiasts Rating 4.9

Malt Advocate 93 points – Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey finished in a port pipe. This is veteran master distiller Lincoln Henderson’s newest creation, and it’s a beauty. Richly textured, silky, and well-rounded, with ripe berried fruits, candied tangerine, light toffee, maple syrup, and creamy vanilla, sprinkled with spice (cinnamon, hint of mint). Smooth, silky finish, and dangerously drinkable! The port pipe notes dovetail perfectly. Lovely just the way it is, but it’s begging for a cigar. My only gripe: why not 45 or 50% ABV? But I’m splitting hairs. I really enjoy this stuff! (Spring 2011) Reviewed by: John Hansell (Aug 2011)
