ANGEL’S ENVY, the Louisville-based distiller that produces finished whiskeys, released its annual Cask Strength whiskey. ANGEL’S ENVY 2022 Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels is a limited-edition, 119.8-proof (59.9% ABV) whiskey. Only 16,980 bottles will be available at select retailers in all 50 U.S. states, including the ANGEL’S ENVY distillery in downtown Louisville.
Our annual Cask Strength expression is our most highly anticipated annual tradition at Angel’s Envy, both for our team and for our fans, and this year’s release is special – not just because it is an exceptional whiskey, but because it also marks an exciting time in Angel’s Envy’s growth. Looking ahead, we can’t wait to see the unique perspective that our new Master Distiller Owen Martin will bring to the Cask Strength program as he oversees it with the support of our best-in-class production team. – Gigi DaDan, General Manager of ANGEL’S ENVY
Each year, the ANGEL’S ENVY team chooses special barrels from its rickhouses. They go through an extended finishing process in port wine barrels from Portugal. These special barrels give each expression of ANGEL’S ENVY Cask Strength a unique nose, palate and finish. The 2021 ANGEL’S ENVY Cask Strength edition received a Double Gold from The San Francisco World Spirits Competition, a Gold from Fred Minnick’s ASCOT Awards and 92 points from the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
ANGEL’S ENVY 2022 Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels offers hints of leather, brown sugar and caramel on the nose, followed by crème brûlée and marshmallow with notes of green apple and orange. It has tasting notes of apples, caramel, and brown sugar that are paired with the creaminess. Vanilla, toasted oak and black pepper spice finish the flavor together with the notes of light fruitiness, grape tannic and a lingering spice.
The suggested retail price for a 750mL bottle of this year’s release is $229.99 (may vary by market).
