Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is one of the most highly rated and highly hyped bourbons on the market. Each hand-blended batch consists of 8-12 barrels. It is aged for up to 6 years in charred American white oak and finished in port wine casks. There is no set time for the finishing process in creating Angel’s Envy. Each barrel is matured purely to taste. Due to the professional and fan hype built up around Angel’s Envy, BWG was extremely excited to try it – and hype be damned – Angel’s Envy is as good, if not better than we expected. On the nose, baked cinnamon dough laced with paprika, toffee and maple is just incredible. The palate is equally as delicious, with vanilla, cinnamon dusted berries and a softly woven underlying spice. The mouth feel is silky smooth, layered and textured. The finish warmly brings in some of the port wine flavors and fades perfectly – like the closing credits to an excellent movie. Angel’s Envy is elegantly balanced, absurdly smooth and made with a deft finesse not often seen in bourbons. Its affordable price tag is worth more than what you get in the bottle. Rating: 95/100.
