Angel’s Envy Has Me Confused | review
Angel’s Envy is a situationship, y'all know, when you been with that dude for to damn long and y'all still aren't a couple. That weird ass feeling that will have you second guessing your entire being, yep that’s what I feel when I sip on Angel's Envy. Its weird because its a bourbon finished in port wine barrels, I know sis I know, my feelings are all fucked up lol shouldn't have purchased it.
Since I was curious I thought what the hell and purchased 750 ml for around $50 at 86.6 proof, which I didn't think was bad. Popped open the top, took a sip, and my mind was blown, but not in a good way at least I don't think *just confused.* I mean how hard could it be to pick up on certain nuisances in a 6 year old small batch of bourbon made with 8-12 barrels. All I can think about is Jack Daniels and Duplin’s Merlot, a teeny weeny bit of Duplins like maybe a teaspoon in a shot of Jack. I say a tiny bit because after the Angel’s Envy has aged it is transferred to ruby port wine casks, that are imported directly from Portugal, to finish processing anywhere between 3-6 months.
You would think this wouldn't be that hard…I just can’t put my finger on what the fuck this taste like, so this time around I am going to share the official review first.
Nose - You’ll detect notes of subtle vanilla, raisins, maple syrup and toasted nuts.
Palate - Vanilla, ripe fruit, maple syrup, toast and bitter chocolate
Finish - Clean and lingering sweetness with a hint of Madeira that slowly fades.
Ok, so now to what my thoughts are
Nose - Lol I thought it was water lol, it didn't taste like anything. I did get a little bit of burn on entry.
Palate - There are small hints of butter scotch that brings back memories of me as a child getting candy from my great grandmother's church stash.
Finish - I did taste the red wine but very little because I thought it was pretty sweet.
Thats all I got, now when reading the review and taking another sip I did pick up on the ripe fruit, maple syrup and the vanilla on the palate. The Louisville Distilling Company did a great job as I think it is a very complex bourbon, but with all of that I still don't know if I like it or not. I am just going to file this one under interesting for now and revisit it later.
For the guys who drink red wine, please put your recommendations in the comments.
