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!
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.

Perfect. Deep flavor that seems to never end. Complex & distinguished.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
A must have for my bar. After a tasting one night, I've scoured store after store trying to find it. As of yet, no luck. So if you can find, buy it. Right now. Then buy another and send it to me.
 
Ben
Ben,
Quite possibly the best Rye I have had. Very hard to find in Atlanta. Bought two bottles when I was out west to bring home. Drink this neat. Subtly sweet with a delicious rye flavor.

Michael,
The rum cast finish gives the rye a very distinct nose and taste. This is by far my favorite rye to date. Unfortunately it is limited release.

Powerful and smooth, one of the best ryes out there. Highly recommended.
 
Eleazar
Eleazar,
Spiced rum and whiskey! Love the spice in the back of your tongue when it hits your mouth. Great with cigars or alone.
 
Carl
Carl,
One of the best bourbons out there in my opinion...but since it's "finished" is it really bourbon???
 
Roger
Roger,
It was very smooth and super tasty. It will definitely have a place in my bar.

Matt,
Sweeeeeeeet!
 
Rich
Rich,
Smooth enough to sip. Spicy enough to remind you that it's not bourbon.
 
Jason
Jason,
Amazing. Even better than the port!
 
Shawn
Shawn,
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.

Smoky finish not to my taste

Amazing
 
Mike
Mike,
Overpowering coconut on the nose and palate that horribly distracts from the base rye spirit. Big miss for a big price in my opinion.
 
Will
Will,
Really good.
