Angel’s Envy Bourbon Whiskey
Lincoln Henderson, former master distiller at Woodford Reserve, was coerced from retirement by his son’s and after tasting the finished whiskey, Lincoln joked that we’d finally gotten a better deal than the angels. And so Angel’s Envy was born.
Crafted using Kentucky corn and rye, minimum 4 years in at least and then finished 3 to 6 months in port barrels. The nose shows the corn and wood off well, carrying a sweet scent strong with maple and vanilla. There is a little red fruitiness in the nose as well. The flavor is light, with the mild wood and tart spiciness standing at the forefront, and that maple and vanilla sweetness a hint of a red fruit note from the nose remains in the background, but is strong enough to add to the complexity of the bourbon. The finish is dry, mellow, a little spicy and a little fruity, and concise.
