What happens after creating brands like Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniel’s “Gentleman Jack” and Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel during a 40 year career as Master Distiller at Brown-Forman Corporation, becoming an inaugural member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame, being awarded Malt Advocate’s Lifetime Achievement Award and claiming the status of “Living Legend” from Wine & Spirits Magazine? Well, if you are Lincoln Henderson, you “come out of retirement” and create the best-tasting bourbon on the planet.
Angel’s Envy is what happens when 200 years of tradition meets a master craftsman’s instinct to improve. It’s a total return to craft first, hand-blended batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. Lincoln personally tastes every barrel throughout each step of the process to ensure that the spirit meets his standards. This would be enough for other premium bourbons, but Lincoln had other ideas. That’s why every batch is finished in ruby port wine casks. The ruby port finish adds nuance without compromising the spirit. Sinfully rich, Angel’s Envy is an exceptionally smooth and rare bourbon inspiring envy, even if it takes a little longer.
A beautiful, mouthwatering newcomer to the whiskey scene. …golden amber spirit… juicy red-fruit notes that slide into the long finish. Look for orange peel, vanilla and roasted nut flavors, too.
