Angel’s Envy Description
We’re particular about our whiskey. So when Lincoln Henderson decided to make a rye, he took an unconventional approach. As a malcontent, it’s just his nature. We began traditionally enough, insisting upon the perfect taste profile at 95% rye. Even the water has to be right. We can be a handful to work with, but the extra effort always seems to pay off. So where other ryes would have stopped, we chose to finish.
Lincoln decided that a rum finish would provide the perfect complement to our already exceptional rye. We chose rum barrels that had previously been used to age French cognac. Long story short, our barrels are vintage and very well travelled. We finish our rye for up to 18 months in these Franco Caribbean casks, resulting in a rare and immensely complex, but incredibly drinkable whiskey, even at 100 proof. With only 2,500 9-liter cases at launch, Angel’s Envy Rum Finished Rye is an extremely small batch release, and we sincerely hope you get the opportunity to enjoy a bottle—neat, mixed or in good company.
First, notice the crystal clear quality with a rich reddish amber color. You smell citrus, caramel candy, maple sugar, vanilla oak, hazelnut, spice and sherry wood. You’ll taste sweet rum sherry wood and soft oak with a finish that’s both sweet and dry as well as quick and easy.

I ordered a bottle of Angel whisky and very quickly Drink Liqour Society contacted me to advise the packaging for the bottle available had been damaged, they emailed photos of the torn packaging. As this wasn’t going to be a gift I agreed to proceed with the order. I would definitely buy from Drink Liqour Society again. Excellent customer service.

Angel’s Envy Rye is aged for six years, giving it a complexity and depth that is hard to find in other rye whiskeys. The whiskey is finished in port wine barrels, which adds a unique sweetness and complexity to the final product. This whiskey is definitely not cheap, but the quality and taste are well worth the price.

The whiskey is aged for up to 6 years in oak casks and finished in rum casks, which imparts a unique depth and complexity to the final product. The rye used in this whiskey is said to be sourced from MGP and for that reason the whiskey is smooth and well balanced.
