In 2013, Spirit Journal named our Angel’s Envy Cask Strength the “Best Spirit in the World.” Angel’s Envy Cask Strength 2014 is unlike any bourbon you’ve ever tried. Only a handful of barrels exceptional enough are selected for the lengthy ruby port cask finishing process, and it is only released it once a year, usually in November.
This year, fewer than 6,500 bottles are available, and Martin Wine Cellar was able to secure a special batch for our exclusive bottling. Even at 119.3 proof, every sip is rare and worth savoring. A remarkably complex, unfiltered spirit, we suggest you enjoy it neat or with just a splash of water to release the flavor nuances, and perhaps with a few friends who also appreciate outstanding whiskey. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength was worth waiting for, now it’s worth sharing.
Appearance: A beautiful, deep amber red tint with a faint copper sheen.
Nose: Toffee, butterscotch, toasted oak, cherries, ripe peach, berry jam, vanilla with notes of banana.
Palate: Strong port notes, cherries, oak and raisins. Next you’ll taste vanilla and honey with a butter velvet feel and a little bit of clove spice. There are faint notes of honeysuckle and just a hint of grassiness.
Finish: Glides around the palate. Let it linger for a few moments before savoring another sip. Add some water and it opens nicely. Warm and sweet with a pleasant burn, our Cask Strength is unlike any whiskey you’ve ever tasted.
