Angel's Envy Bourbon
Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award-winning spirit. The distillery guides each batch’s conditioning, blending their handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. It’s typically aged for up to 6 years. While the distillery loses about 5% of the spirit each year to evaporation, or “the Angel’s Share,” what’s left behind after they’re done is truly worthy of envy. Once it’s deemed ready, they finish their bourbon in ruby port wine casks, which adds subtly distinct flavor nuances that enhance the whiskey without challenging it. The company's port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste. They 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.
