Angel's Envy BOURBON

Q image thumb

$16

 

In bourbon making parlance, "angel's share" refers to the portion of whiskey lost to evaporation during the aging process. After crafting his latest bourbon, seasoned whiskey producer Lincoln Henderson (formerly of Woodford Reserve and Old Forester, and who has since passed away) declared his new concoction "Angel's Envy," claiming that the heavenly beings would no doubt want even more of this divine drink. 

The bourbon starts with corn and rye, is aged in American white oak barrels for four to six years, and then aged for three to six additional months in port casks. Displaying a luminous gold-copper color, this newcomer to the bourbon world exhibits a light, playful flavor on the tongue followed by a long finish with hints of orange zest, making it both seductive and accessible to those wary of whiskey.

Blanton's BOURBON

$18

Bourbon has been enjoyed for centuries, but single barrel bourbon only dates back to 1984, when the owners of Ancient Age Distillery (now Buffalo Trace Distillery) set out to create a premium quality product. In the process, they revolutionized the industry.

The inspiration? Colonel Albert Blanton, our bourbon’s namesake. It all started during a conversation with his former apprentice, Elmer T. Lee. Mr. Lee recalled the days when Col. Blanton would entertain friends and special guests by serving them bourbon from Warehouse H. Col. Blanton discovered that this warehouse aged bourbon better than any other on the grounds, especially in the middle sections known as the center cut. After taste-testing samples, Col. Blanton would pick an individual barrel he liked best and have it bottled. The bottles became his special select single barrel bourbons.

Mr. Lee’s concept turned into a reality when the owners asked him to oversee the project, selecting the finest barrels from the same Warehouse H. In 1984, Blanton’s became the first American entry into the ultra-premium whiskey market. Today, most distilleries offer one or more single barrel bottlings, but Blanton’s was the first, and we still believe the finest, single barrel on the market.
