ANGEL'S ENVY Releases Limited-Edition, ANGEL'S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks
With our latest ANGEL'S ENVY expression, we've taken inspiration from the Venenciador of Spain, whose exacting pull and pour of sherry is required to aerate the liquid in order to reveal its true character, said Wes Henderson, Chief Innovation Officer and Founder at ANGEL'S ENVY. We took a page from that book and chose to let this limited release rest for an extended finishing period in Oloroso sherry barrels, lengthening the oxidation process for a sophisticated level of flavor. We chose Oloroso sherry casks because we believed the nutty notes from the Oloroso Sherry would pair well with our bourbon.

Before entering the Oloroso Sherry casks, the bourbon was aged for 4-9 years. It was then finished in Oloroso Sherry casks between two and three years. At 100-proof, ANGEL'S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks has a sweet nose with hints of raisin and hazelnut. It hits the palate as oak forward with a distinct dryness from the sherry, as well as vanilla and caramel with a finish that shifts from sweetness to lingering floral.
ANGEL'S ENVY Sherry Finish is sold exclusively in Kentucky. SRP $199.99.
