Private Select Bourbon
When we heard there wouldn't be access to an Angel's Envy barrel pick for at least 2-3 years for Australia we took action into our own hands! Partnering with Bourbon Brothers Australia and in collaboration with The Prime Barrel, we bring you the first ever Angel's Envy Private Select for Australia!
"The winning barrel (#2980) stood out for several reasons. First, it has an incredible nose (more on that below) - it just blew other samples we tasted away right from the get-go. Second, the' very bold flavour. Even though this is a manageable 108 Proof (by single barrel standards), it does drink a lot bolder than that."
Angel's Envy, Louisville, KY
Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Finished in port wine barrels
Barrel: #2980 "Cupid's Share"
Mash Bill: 72% corn, 18% rye, 10% malted barley
Barrel Char: #3
Proof: 54% abv.
Nose: Superb and complex. Port influence is very much there, and you also get distinct notes of maraschino cherries, raisinets, caramelized banana, marzipan. If you are a Starbucks drinker, you'll get notes of their banana nut bread.
Palate: Spice bomb! You'll get allspice, dry orange peel/zest, white pepper, cocoa bibbs, and even bold espresso flavour.
Finish: Medium to long. That spice stays with you for a minute.
