Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey finished in Port Wine Barrels is a fan favourite that is now widely available across Canada. It received a Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and was honored with a 98-point ranking from Wine Enthusiast. It also received a 93-point ranking from Whisky Advocate and a five-star rating from F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal.
What differentiates Angel’s Envy Bourbon is that it is aged for four to six years in new charred white oak barrels and blended to meet the ideal flavor profile. In the last stage of production, the bourbon is finished for up to an additional six months in 60-gallon port barrels from Portugal and then blended again to ensure the taste is to perfection. The result is a complex spirit with scents of subtle vanilla, raisins, and maple syrup. The flavor profiles include ripe fruit, vanilla, bitter chocolate, maple syrup, and toast. Drinking Angel’s Envy Bourbon is a memorable experience that finishes with a clean and lingering sweetness and a hint of Madeira that slowly fades into an elegant finish.
The Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a fantastic holiday gift for whiskey lovers. The team is passionate about their craft and their unique process makes them innovators in the industry. Each of their whiskies are blended to taste before the secondary finishing process is applied, and then again after to ensure that the flavor profile is exactly where it needs to be at each point in the process.
