Angel’s Envy Cask Strength
Louisville Distilling Company recently announced the limited-edition release of critically acclaimed Angel’s Envy Cask Strength. The Expression will be available this October in select markets including: CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, MA, MI, NJ, NY, OR, TN, TX, WA. Due to the scarcity of barrels necessary for the enhanced finishing process, Angel’s Envy will release only 6,500 bottles. Previous releases quickly sold out.
Named “best spirit in the world” by Paul Pacult in the June 2013 edition of Spirit Journal, Cask Strength shared top honors with a 25-year-old single malt whisky that sold for nearly twice the price. In his review, Pacult awarded the brand five stars – his highest recommendation – noting, “this masterpiece deserves a sixth star rating.”
As with Angel’s Envy, the super-premium whiskey, Cask Strength, is aged to the perfect level of richness and maturity (up to seven years). The barrels are then blended into a single batch and finished in hand-selected port casks.
“Cask Strength is rare and rich Bourbon worth savoring,” said Wes Henderson, Chief Innovation Officer, Angel’s Envy. “The first couple of releases sold out quickly so we’re thrilled to make it even more widely available this year.”
The suggested retail price for a 750ml bottle, which may vary by market, is $169. A remarkably complex whiskey at 119.3-proof and 59.65% alcohol by volume, Cask Strength is best enjoyed with just a bit of water to release the flavor nuances.
