Angel's Envy Cask Strength 2018 Bourbon
Aged in ex-bourbon barrels, Angel’s Envy Cask Strength 2018 is a big, dark and complex bourbon. This limited release is aged in 20 year-old Kentucky oak barrels and is non chill filtered to retain the flavors of the barrel. Aged for 12 years, this whiskey has plenty of time in the glass to mature into a smooth and very flavorful spirit.
Spiced plum dominates the nose with black fig and sticky molasses following right behind. These strong, somewhat overpowering aromas make fishing out subtleties extremely difficult, but after a few minutes some soft cedar and desert sage peak through.
This is cask strength, so without dilution you are hit with a wave of woody spices, apple cider, and saltwater taffy all at once. The alcohol lights up the outside edges of your tongue leaving everything tingling as the sweet but still spicy finish starts to appear. As the warmth travels down your throat a slight bitterness appears to help balance the rich sweetness it started off with.
