One of the top Bourbon releases of the year in a cask strength, Ruby Port finished masterpiece.
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 Distiller Lincoln Henderson's lifetime of crafting fine Spirits. It is worth mentioning that everything these angels touch has received universal acclaim. They only make five versions — a Ruby Port Finished Bourbon, a Rum Finished Rye, Sherry Finished Bourbon, Tawny Port Finished Bourbon, and their top of the line Cask Strength Ruby Port Finished Bourbon. We say buy whatever you can get your hands on.
This is one of THE releases of the year… bar none. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon is the Ruby Port finished wonder dram that has been the topic of myth and legend since the first release came out about eight years ago. The 2020 edition was released just last month, and by our count they only have ninety-four or ninety-five barrels of the stuff for all of us to share — that’s a yield of just 17,400 bottles or so. Get one while you can. This is the same dram that was named "Best Spirit in the World"… the same one that received "Five Stars — Highest Recommendation." If you can, buy two bottles — one for you and one for a VERY impressive gift at 60.2% ABV.
A bit of Whiskey escapes the barrel through evaporation during each year of aging. This has been called "the angel’s share" for centuries. Angel’s Envy is so good, the makers imagined the angels would envy the Spirits that remained in the cask. Thus the name.
