  • Excerpt: But in contrast, here the wine barrel finish offers a richer, deeper body that sherried whiskys usually don’t have, and one that appears to go smashingly well with Bourbon.

  • Excerpt: Y’know, the finish actually that sums up this whiskey, an oak-aged PB&J. Overall the Angel’s Envy Bourbon Whiskey is sweet, too sweet for me.

  • Excerpt: The taste is vanilla, red apples, maple syrup, cocoa, and rye bread. The finish is dried apples and bananas, vanilla, sweet and long with a slight red wine tartness.

  • Excerpt: The port pipe notes dovetail perfectly. Lovely just the way it is, but it’s begging for a cigar. My only gripe: why not 45 or 50% ABV?

  • Excerpt: If you haven't explored barrel finished bourbons yet, Angel’s Envy Port Finished Bourbon is a good start. It’s not so influenced that you’ll be turned off if you discover you're more of a traditionalist, and if you find that you like it, you’ll have a suitable introduction to a range of barrel finished products to further explore.

  • Excerpt: This is interesting, but not incredible. The jammy qualities of the port wine finish are fun and interesting, but the mouth feel and finish are thin and too quick to be on their way.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Angels Envy is a port finished bourbon whiskey distilled by an undisclosed producer and bottled by Angels Envy.

  • Nose:

    Sweet on the nose, jammy and fruity. Honey, slivered almond, strawberry jam and some pepper linker.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, but jammy and sweet. This shows far more restraint than the Angels Envy Rye - though this also clearly lacks dosing. Toffee, hint of nutmeg, strawberry jam and faint cinnamon.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium finish. Some honey, more fruits, butter cream. Light oak.

  • Overall:

    This is interesting, but not incredible. The jammy qualities of the port wine finish are fun and interesting, but the mouth feel and finish are thin and too quick to be on their way.
