This amazing Bourbon is a product of Louisville Distilling Co., a distillery rooted in 200 years of Bourbon heritage that creates artisan, hand-finished spirits. The Angel's Envy is, as they say, their masterpiece, and was inspired by legendary Master Distilled Lincoln Handerson's lifetime spent crafting fine spirits. They offer two other expressions: a cask strength Bourbon and a Rum finished Rye.
For the production of Angel’s Envy Port Finished Bourbon only mineral-rich Kentucky limestone water and locally sourced grains are used. The Bourbon is aged for up to 6 years in the upper floors of the warehouse, and finished for another 3-6 months in port casks made from French oak that are imported directly from Portugal. My, oh, my gimme, gimme!
Oooops. This bottle isn't on our current list of Home Bar Essentials... but it could be. Add it to your wish list and let us know you want it!

Member Reviews and Ratings of Angel's Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon
The nose is interesting! Like a smoked berry medley jam. Smooth on the palate with an it of lingering spice on the back that merely expands. I'm almost too afraid to try mixing this in anything, not that it needs to be.
Very smooth and sweet bourbon.
A lot of people love this and I understand why (I love "sweet" in my bourbon as much as the next guy) but this one is just too much for my taste buds.
At this time my favorite bourbon of all time. I like the vanilla finish without any burn.
Too sweet for me
We're syrup meets paint shellac. But in a good way.
is a good bourbon with a rich birth, a creamy life & a sweet death!
By far one of my favorites.
Love this one. Easy drinking.
Amazing value. My go-to sipping bourbon. Smooth with no dirt or nut after.
A little sweet for my tastes. Lovely fruity/maple nose. A little spicy in the mouth initially but a nice mellow as time progresses.
Very smooth. Rich finish.
Excellent on ice or straight.
A hint of fruity aroma to the nose with a very smooth palette.
The port cast finish makes this a very enjoyable bourbon
Great and easy going with smooth notes.
One of the best bourbons out there in my opinion...but since it's "finished" in port casks is it really bourbon???
Smooth and easy to drink
Here's the deal...I buy all of the bourbon you advertise for substantially less. An example is "Angel's Envy"...which I get for $8-$9 less at local liquor stores. Nice selection...but, I question your pricing strategy.
It's very light and easy to drink…too easy to me. Not much in the way of flavor. Good way to ease someone into bourbon, though.
almost a perfect Bourbon
One of my favorites. Such a great finish
Very smooth and enjoyable to drink.
Absolutely loved it. Smooth and easy with a great finish.
Find the bourbon to soft and wimp for my taste. It is well loved but not my cup of tea.
The port is a great finisher, love it combined with the vanilla
1. I'm still very much of a novice, so take that in mind. 2. A bit of astringency up front (but I get that with almost everything), but it mellows out from there.
As more of a wine-drinker, I definitely appreciate the sublet port tones. Before the port comes through, there is a biter-maple quality, which I like.
It's one of my favorites so far ("so far" being in the less than $60 a bottle grouping).
fantastic finish but just on the sweet side. full flavor but tasting notes are slightly suppressed by the port
Like it but can't afford it!
Good enough to buy more. Easy to drink.
Great Taste! A little on the sweet side for my liking. But smooth, Straight or on the Rocks!
Great finish ! One of my favorites
Still one of my favorites. Very smooth.
Smoooth! The port adds just the right flavor touch.
Definitely one of my favorite bourbons. It's not your typical bourbon, it's smooth with a sweet finish from the port wine barrels. Great for beginners!
I literally own bottle 666 of this. Ironic, iconic, hilarious... this stuff is fantastic. Nice smooth finish, sweet complex flavors. Not too harsh.
Wonderful, smooth whiskey. One of my favorites.
Great taste! A new favorite if I can find it under $50.
Little salt, smooth, a favorite
One of my favorite bourbons!
REALLY SMOOTH! Not smoky, truly one of the smoothest I've ever had. If you're new to whiskey and bourbon, this is a good one to try out.
Smooth and easy drinking. Unique flavor, and One of the best bourbons I've had.
Tried it thinking it was a gimmicky bourbon but was pleasantly surprised at the high quality
Smooth. Personal favorite.
Nice after dinner mint or goes good with a fine steak
I received this several weeks ago and saved it for tonight, special occasion. I immediately came online to order more bottles and it is sold out. There is a reason for this. It is the smoothest, best bourbon I have had for late night, brandy sniffer, wood fire, relaxing, experience. It is now wish listed to purchase more.
It is one of my go to bourbons. Very smooth with a clean finish. Excellent.
This is the smoothest and best whiskey I have had the pleasure to taste. Immediately became my favorite and still is...
I thought this was the smoothest bourbon I had ever tried. In fact, so smooth that I drank the whole bottle (not all at once)!
Great buy, and I will buy more.
Easy drinking. Sweet flavor. No long aftertaste.
Overall very good. Smooth finish
One of my favorites.
Exceptional bourbon. Smooth with a light caramel flavor
Smooth and delicious! One of my go to bourbons.
Smooth. Sweet. Everything I would expect from a bourbon.
Rich oak in the nose. Initially sweet with buttery, almost caramel notes. The sweetness gives way to subtle floral flavors with hints of grain and smoke. Long, clean, dry finish. Extremely smooth, easy to drink whiskey. My new favorite!
One of my favorite bottles in my collection. I'd rank it in my top three with Four Roses Single Barrel and Woodford Reserve. New to the club though and looking forward to further expanding my horizons.
Nice sipping whiskey.
Sip-for-sip, dollar-for-dollar one of the finest bourbons ever made. There is a reason that, depending on the critics, this bourbon ranks in the high 90s of most reviews. The Madeira notes, a medium body, it sips best straight, but there are those who feel the compulsion to chill and dilute, to which I say, 'to each their own,' much as I would to the guy who painted over the Picasso to make room for his masterpiece. Aptly named, this whiskey is truly "divine."
So smooth and creamy. No harsh finish! This is my new go to bourbon whiskey!
It stood out in a flight that I had in Louisville 2 years ago and have loved it ever since.
Omg, like Jim Beam on Crack
Smooth. Not spicy.
Solid but unspectacular.
I love how smooth it is!
Love this bourbon
Extremely smooth and wonderful flavor. Great sipping whiskey neat or over ice.
Sweet and smooth
Smooth and easy to drink. Loved drinking it
I love it goes down smooth
Top of its class.
One of my favorites . Excellent flavor.
Too much spice for my taste but I like a darker, more caramel flavored whiskey. This is definitely a good one if you're into the spicier whiskeys.
