Angel's Envy Rye is a study in the “Circle of Wood” (to coin a term), and this is a story of liquid love worth telling.  
Angel’s Envy Bourbons and Ryes come to us from the blessed hands of Louisville Distilling Co. The Angel's Envy line is, as they say, their masterpiece… inspired by legendary Master Distilled Lincoln Henderson's lifetime of crafting fine spirits. It is worth mentioning that everything these angels touch has received universal acclaim, so buy whatever you can get your hands on. 
It is also worth mentioning that they are—right this very minute—building a brand new distillery and tasting room (God bless ‘em) in a renovated Louisville, Kentucky, brick warehouse to which Whiskey-lovers from the world ‘round will no doubt be making future pilgrimages. 

All Angel’s Envy products are awesome, and this one is something special. But we have to call them out … calling Angel's Envy Rye “Rum Finished” is a serious error of omission. Remember the theme song from The Lion King, “The Circle of Life?” Angel's Envy Rye is a study in the “Circle of Wood” (to coin a term), and this is a story worth telling. 
Angel's Envy Rye starts life as a quality, but rather traditional mix of 95% Rye and 5% malted barley. Bulleit, Dickle… a lot of the top guys use this mix because it works well. This is where Angel’s Envy works their magic. First, they age it a full six years in medium-char American oak. Then they finish it for an additional 18 months in Rum casks, but not just “any” Rum casks. These are “THE” Rum casks from Plantation Rum… the ones that started as Cognac casks from Maison Ferrand. So Angel's Envy Rye is third in a line of super-premium awesomeness in those casks, emerging 7 1/2 years old. No more sales pitch, you just think about that for a minute and get back to us. 
Meanwhile, out there in the expansive Flaviar warehouse, Uncle Flaviar is stuffing as many bottles as he can into his gym bag when he thinks none of us are looking.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Angel's Envy Rye Whiskey Rum Barrel Finish
Amazing. Even better than the port!
My favorite rye. The rum flavors really shine in the long, lingering finish. I prefer to drink it neat or with a single cube. The rum notes REALLY come to the fore when enjoyed neat from a Glencairn glass.
Smooth, with a bite. Very present floral aroma. Loved it.
Sweet and lovely
Top notch rye with a unique finish
Just got into rye's....this one is quite amazing and complex.
Love this rye!
Love this pour with a single cube. The Rye is where it is at. One of my absolute favorites.
Smoky finish not to my taste
Overpowering coconut on the nose and palate that horribly distracts from the base rye spirit. Big miss for a big price in my opinion.
Really good.
