Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award winning spirit. We guide each batch’s conditioning, blending our handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 10 barrels at a time. It’s typically aged 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’re done is truly worthy of envy.

Once it’s deemed ready, we finish our bourbon in ruby port wine 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.

Mash bill: 72% Corn, 18% Rye, 10% Malted Barley

Proof: 86.6

Appearance: gold color laced with reddish amber hues, nearly copper in tone
Nose: you’ll detect notes of subtle vanilla, raisins, maple syrup and toasted nuts

Finish: clean and lingering sweetness with a hint of Madeira that slowly fades

Awards/Reviews

94-98 Points, Top 100 - Wine Enthusiast

"Luxe and velvety, this port-finished Bourbon shows bold caramel and toffee up front, morphing into notes of sherry, honey and rounded red fruit. Plush and very soft, it needs little more than an ice cube." 

93 Points - Whisky Advocate

"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. I really enjoy this stuff!"
