98 points Wine Enthusiast - A beautiful, mouthwatering newcomer to the whiskey scene. Named for the 'angel's share,' the portion that evaporates from the barrel during the aging process, this golden amber spirit is finished in Port barrels, which explains those juicy red-fruit notes that slide into the long finish. Look for orange peel, vanilla and roasted nut flavors, too. abv: 43.3%.
Named after the 'angel’s share' (the portion of the spirit that evaporates during aging), Angel’s Envy was created by Lincoln Henderson, developer of Gentleman Jack and Woodford Reserve. His new project is aged 4-6 years, made up of 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malt and is aged in air-dried Bluegrass Cooperage barrels and finished in ruby port barrels. It’s a very subtle bourbon, with a nose of vanilla and toasted nuts. A hint of maple in the flavor and a smooth finish that lasts.
