Angels Envy ‘Rum Cask Finish’ Rye Whiskey 750ml 50%
Limited-Edition – Direct from the USA
750ml: 50% alc (100 proof)
Region: Louisville, Kentucky
Bottler: Angels Envy
Barrel: Rum cask finish
The first ever Angel’s Envy Rye Rum Cask finish started with a 95% Rye mashbill and then spent up to 18 months finishing in Caribbean rum casks, resulting in an immensely complex whiskey. The mingling of raw, spicy and earthy rye with the mellow sweetness of rum finishing creates an incomparably oily and drinkable whiskey at 100 proof.
Their vintage barrels began as small-batch French cognac barrels, which were then used to age and finish Plantation XO Rum.
The Distillery comments;
“When we decided to release a rye, we knew it had to be something special to live up to the amazing response received by our bourbon finished in port barrels. Angel’s Envy Rye Finished in Rum Barrels is genuinely unique and worthy of Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s legacy.
The taste profile of rye whiskey was a perfect fit for a rum cask finish. After sampling over 100 rums to find the right flavour to complement rye whiskey, the team’s decision was unanimous”.
