Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon: Very few whiskeys can claim to be GMO-free, given the altered state of corn in the United States. And even fewer can claim to be finished in ruby port barrels. But Angel’s Envy, the new liquor from Lincoln Henderson, former head distiller at Brown-Forman, lives up to both those claims.
The result is a bourbon that’s light on its feet (86.6 proof) yet still deep in flavor, full of vanilla and roasted nuttiness that lingers well on the finish. And while the name is a play on the “angel’s share” — what evaporates during barrel-aging — no doubt even angels would thirst for this complex, hand-blended delight.
