Angel's Envy "5B-1480C" Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished In Port Wine Barrels
Introducing Angel's Envy "5B-1480C" Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels, an exceptional and limited release that showcases the dedication to innovation and craftsmanship from this distinguished distillery. This unique expression is carefully crafted from a single barrel selection, ensuring a one-of-a-kind whiskey experience that is both rare and memorable.
The bourbon is initially aged in traditional American oak barrels before undergoing a secondary maturation in hand-selected Port wine barrels. This finishing process imparts an unparalleled depth of flavor and complexity, creating a harmonious balance between the rich, bold character of the bourbon and the smooth, fruity nuances of the Port wine.
Nose: The nose offers a delightful balance of aromas, with bold notes of caramel, vanilla, and toasted oak intermingling with the gentle sweetness of dark fruits, such as blackberries, cherries, and plums, and a hint of chocolate. As the aroma develops, subtle hints of baking spices, nuts, and a touch of leather emerge, adding further depth and complexity.
Palate: On the palate, this Bourbon delivers a full-bodied, velvety texture. The prominent flavors of caramel, brown sugar, and vanilla are expertly complemented by the smooth, fruity undertones of the Port wine finish. Mid-palate, the flavors evolve to reveal delicate notes of dried fruits, orange zest, and a hint of tobacco, creating a well-rounded and harmonious profile.
Finish: The finish is long and satisfying, with the lingering warmth of toasted oak and baking spices gently fading, leaving behind a gratifying aftertaste of sweet dark fruits, rich chocolate, and a whisper of smoky char.
