Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Madeira Casks, is said to deliver notes of caramelized banana, brown sugar, raisins, almonds and faint cherry on the nose, followed by notes of oak, grass, smoke, leather, chocolate and dried cherries on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Wes Henderson, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Angel's Envy, said: "There's deep history and craftsmanship involved in the production of Madeira wine, so my sons and I knew we wanted to tap into that to create something special for our Cellar Collection. We took a trip to the island in 2015 and tried more than 30 varieties until we found the perfect casks that would lend both the dryness of a good sherry and the richness of tawny port to our bourbon. This release, like all of Angel's Envy's whiskeys, was a family effort, so it feels only right to share this bourbon with our fans in celebration of Father's Day."
Limited to around 400 bottles, Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Madeira Casks, will be available next month in selected states across the US, for a RRP of $229.99. There will also be a further 600 pre-release bottles available via a lottery for members of Angel’s Envy 500 Main club.
