That quote is said routinely by bourbon brewers at Angel’s Envy. While creators at Angel’s Envy want to preserve the tradition of fine bourbons, they are always looking for ways to experiment and improve bourbon. The brand initially started with an idea that had not been tried in the bourbon industry: making a bourbon finished in port barrels. Lincoln Henderson, a legendary Master Distiller, came out of retirement to explore new barrel again ideas with his son Wes. And with over 200 years of bourbon heritage, Angel’s Envy holds award-winning brews that separate themselves from the rest.
Angel’s Envy prides themselves on perfection, and they ensure every barrel is up to Angel Envy standards. Every barrel is tasted throughout each step of the finishing process. Some say this load of perfectionism is a little overboard, but it ensures that their brews meet their expectations of fine bourbon.
One of their top products, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength, was even ranked the “Best Spirit in the World” by Spirit Journal. This year, Angel’s Envy is releasing fewer than 8,000 bottles of this rare and delicious spirit! Aged in port barrels, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength is full of flavor bourbon lovers are sure to enjoy. Though the bourbon is darker in color, its smell on the nose is not as strength as usual with darker bourbons. It has hints of rose petals, fruit, black peppercorns, and clove. On the palate, it has distinct flavors of caramel coffee, dried fig, aged tobacco, and toasted sourdough bread. The finish is rich and buttery. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength is best neat or with a splash of water to help bring out the flavors and settle the burn in its finish. If you’re looking for an amazing bourbon that combines flavor, balance, and complexity, you should give Angel’s Envy Cask Strength a try!
