Angel’s Envy Bourbon Continuing to Push Bourbon’s Limits With New Rare Release
2019 and 2020 gave us Oloroso Sherry and Tawny Port, and 2021 continues the wine trend with the bourbon spending a full year in Madeira Wine casks. Typically, wine finishes with bourbon may only last a few months and AE believes the additional type helps integrate complexity of the wine and oak with the base spirit.
Wes Henderson, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, said that they went to Madeira in 2015 to try various wines in order to get the best barrels possible to finish their bourbon in.
