About Angel's Envy Mizunara Cask Finish Bourbon Whiskey
This expression is the first in Angel's Envy Founder's Collection lineup. It celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the first port barrel that the Hendersons filled with bourbon. It's a blend of 2 Kentucky straight bourbons aged 4 and 9 years that were finished in charred new Japanese Mizunara oak barrels for 2 years. It's a porous type of wood that takes 2 centuries to reach maturity, making these barrels extremely desirable and valuable. It's an extremely clean whiskey with a masterful balance of fruit, spice, and oak notes.

About Angel's Envy
After graduating college, Lincoln Henderson joined Brown-Forman as a grain chemist and was eventually promoted to Master Distiller. During his 40-year tenure at Brown-Forman, he honed his skills while developing new brands such as Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Jack Daniel Distillery "Gentleman Jack" and Jack Daniel Distillery Single Barrel Whiskey. In addition to being responsible for the development of new products, Henderson oversaw quality control, technical distillery supervision, and sensory evaluation. "I never regretted a day when I had to go to work," says Henderson, who was awarded Malt Advocate's Lifetime Achievement Award and was an inaugural member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.
After retiring from Brown-Forman, Henderson decided to go rogue and launched Angel's Envy Bourbon. "Angel's Envy is a lot of things," said Henderson. "It's my life's work. It's a whiskey of incomparable smoothness. It takes into account over 200 years of bourbon heritage and mingles it with over 400 years of port wine heritage." The name is derived from the term "angel's share" ― the portion of whiskey that evaporates as it ages in wooden barrels. After tasting the bourbon, Henderson realized that the angels might want a larger cut. The family operation is now run by his son Wes Henderson.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
The nose has charred oak, sandalwood, banana bread, cherry, and apple aromas. On the palate, you'll find vanilla, oak, chocolate, banana, and a touch of black pepper with more fruit, cinnamon, and a touch of coffee. The finish is slightly dry with toasted oak and lingering smoky notes.
