Angel's Envy Cask Strength 2019
In F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal, the Angel’s Envy Cask Strength 2012 release was ranked the “Best Spirit in the World,” and the 2015 release was given “Five Stars, Highest Recommendation.” Angel’s Envy is releasing a very limited number of bottles of our award-winning Cask Strength this year, so don’t miss your chance to pick up a bottle or two of this rare and delicious spirit. Each year’s release is distinctly unique and is pulled from the most remarkable barrels in our rickhouse.
We judge only a handful of barrels exceptional enough for our lengthy finishing process. The result? Even at 122.4 proof, every sip is worth savoring. A remarkably complex 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 appreciate outstanding whiskey. Angel’s Envy Cask Strength was worth waiting for, now it’s worth sharing.
After graduating college, Lincoln Henderson joined Brown-Forman as a grain chemist and was eventually promoted to Master Distiller. During his 40-year tenure at Brown-Forman, Henderson honed his skills while developing new brands such as Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Jack Daniel's "Gentleman Jack" and Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Whiskey. In addition to being responsible for the development of new products, Henderson oversaw quality control, technical distillery supervision and sensory evaluation. "I never regretted a day when I had to go to work," says Henderson, who was awarded Malt Advocate's Lifetime Achievement Award and was an inaugural member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.
After retiring from Brown-Forman, Henderson decided to go rogue and launched Angel's Envy Bourbon. "Angel's Envy is a lot of things," says Henderson. "It's my life's work. It's a whiskey of incomparable smoothness. It takes into account over 200 years of bourbon heritage and mingles it with over 400 years of port wine heritage." The name is derived from the term "angel's share" — the portion of whiskey that evaporates as it ages in wooden barrels. After tasting the bourbon, Henderson realized that the angel's might want a larger cut.
Angel’s Envy is an exceptional Kentucky straight bourbon finished in port wine barrels. Given the Highest Recommendation by Spirit Journal, celebrated by Whisky Advocate, The Bourbon Review, and awarded Wine Enthusiast’s highest bourbon rating, Angel’s Envy is unlike any other whiskey you’ve ever tasted.
