Worthy of Envy



Ranked the “Best Spirit in the World” by F. Paul Pacult’s 2013 Spirit Journal, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength is unlike any bourbon you’ve ever tried. Each year, we judge only a handful of our barrels exceptional enough for release as our Cask Strength and its lengthy finishing process. The result? Every sip is rare and worth savoring. Each year’s release is unique in its flavor profile, and we suggest that you enjoy this spirit with a few friends who appreciate outstanding whiskey. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength was worth waiting for, now it’s worth sharing.

Nose: Definitely some rich earthy tones from the nose that is seamlessly brought into caramel and light sweetness.

Palate: Liquid coats the inside of the mouth and sticks around. Very pleasant mouth feel and flavor where I’m picking out some vanilla and maybe some brown sugar.

Finish: New notes come out with each sip and it is very warming to the soul.
