New one on me, but I love Bourbon, and I love Port, so I guess I better go find some.

Everyone seems to have been on a boutique bender with their distilled product for some time now.

Bourbon and other brown liquors are being finished in port barrels, sherry butts, red wine hogsheads of all types and varietals, Scotch and Irish whiskys are being aged in many of the same ways. You see port finished in whisky casks, sherry finished in madeira barrels, wine getting finishing time in all sorts of reused oak.

If you are a golfer like me as goes your potent potables, you could enjoy a daily afternoon/evening attitude adjustment 7/52/365 and never sample the same liquid twice for decades if you so had the means of procurement, and I'm not even touching on fermented product. Such are these days of plenty.

Envy is a good one. so is Buffalo Trace.

And of course, Pappy Van Winkle, if you want to mortgage your house...

I totally agree, really good stuff. But its out of the realm of a daily sipper ($$$). Bullet is my choice for a reasonably priced, very good bourbon, on the rocks if you please!

I wrote about this in my year in bourbon thread but Since Photobucked Effed up all of my posts, it doesn't have quite the same readability...but it is good to read some of the review quotes on the angel's envy in the link above.

One thing I discovered later in that thread, is that there is a locally made bourbon that is really similar and at half the cost. It is Reiger's whiskey and is a bourbon that is mixed with a small amount of 15 year oleroso sherry. I like that a lot too.

Hmmmmm...I'll have to give that a try. Been doing mostly Basil Haydens, Bullet or Buffalo Trace recently.

Thanks for the heads up!

Well I hit up all the local liquor stores looking for the Angel's Envy. Only one carries it and they were out. Told me that they never know when they will get any in or how much; distributors telling them it's in short supply at the moment.

Default Well, well, well

Now that I have been to Helen, Georgia I can say I liked Georgia better. Seriously though, of all places I found Angel's Envy in a pacakge store in Helen, Ga. in fact they had six bottles when no one else seems to have any, so I bought two bottles. A bit pricey but I figured if I like it, I have a spare. If I don't well I can trade it to someone here for something else.

I put a nice dent in a bottle last night. We have state run wine and spirits here in taxalvania. One benefit of that is all of the stores big or small are well stocked.

Well we are back from our motorcycle trip to GA. Last night I cracked open a bottle of the Angel's Envy, added a couple pieces of ice and proceeded to sample the elusive whisky.

Before I tell you what I think of Angel's Envy I will say two things. One, I am a Scotch drinker by choice and stick with single malts exclusively. Two, by being a Scotch drinker I am somewhat used to paying more for whisky than say your average bourbon drinker. So paying $52 per bottle before taxes wasn't a deal breaker but the wife drinks Maker's Mark and that is less expensive than the Angel's Envy.

Funny story real quick, when I found the Envy and I saw the price, I immediately told the wife I am about to spend over $100 for some bourbon and she said, OK. Damn I love that gal.

I do not have a trained nose, nor do I know the correct usages of the terms the whisky snobs use. So to get down to brass tacks, this is a fine whisky. It is not overpowering to the nose or the old tongue. It is quite smooth but the finish is short lived although pleasant. The single malts I drink mostly have a longer finish but I was not disappointed in this revelation. Since this bourbon is finished off in Port barrels, the bourbon taste is mostly up front. It would be my guess that the Port barrels have a lot to do with the mildness of the flavor that comes through after the initial taste instead of what i would consider stronger straight bourbon flavor of other Straight Kentucky Bourbons.

Bottom line is I like it and I will be keeping the other bottle. However, I will not be going out of my just to find it. If you like whisky and you are not a bourbon snob, chances are you should enjoy this whisky. Although it is considered a bourbon because it meets the definition, there is no aging statement on the bottle. The only time that really matters to me is when selecting Scotch anyway.
