About this deal

Unfortunately, due to laws/regulations we cannot deliver spirit/liquor products to any PO Box addresses or in some cases to all states, countries, or providences. Smooth and quite light I find, full in the mouth, spicy in throat but not as aggressive going down the throat as many other bourbons, definitely vanilla on the tongue and some sweetness creeping in. The more experimentation the better, we reckon, especially when it turns out something like this – marrying the sweet caramel and grain of bourbon with the rich sticky wine flavours of a port cask.

By maturing our whiskey in charred oak barrels, then transferring it to secondary finishing casks, we crafted a distinct blend of refined complexity with an inviting flavor profile. Pipe Dream Bourbon is made from barrels aged between four and twelve years with a high corn mash bill.

When you come in, you can find your new favourite bottle at our tasting counter, hire glasses, flutes and chiller bins free* and pick up some ice. Angel's Envy was launched in 2011, the brainchild of Wes Henderson, whose father Lincoln was a Master Distiller with Brown-Forman (and credited with creating Woodford Reserve) until his retirement after 40 years. Since 2014, our annual program and partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation has initiated the planting of more than 275,000 trees in national forests and the planting of urban canopies in cities across the United States. Angel’s Envy’s “Cellar Collection” is the brand’s special release program to showcase innovation and highlight Angel’s Envy’s unique approach to making bourbon. Der Geschmack von Nahrungsmitteln / Genussmitteln ist natürlich immer subjektiv, auch wenn man objektive Kriterien mit anbringen kann.

Storied Whiskey industry vet Lincoln Henderson achieved much in his lifetime, including time as Master Distiller at Brown-Forman. Fortaleza tequila is hand-made from stone-crushed agave by Guillermo Sauza, a fifth generation Sauza family-member. In 2016, Angel’s Envy opened the first full-production whiskey distillery along Whiskey Row in the heart of downtown Louisville since prohibition. Highly recommend you try it even though it is more expensive than I would normally pay for bourbon this is as it says, angels envy and worth every penny. Originally Angel's Envy was a sourced Bourbon, but the USP for the brand was time spent finishing in barrels that had previously held Port - up to 6 months.Sadly Lincoln Henderson died in 2013 surrounded by his family but his spirit lives on the incredible whiskey they continue to make.

Enjoy sweet caramel notes from the virgin oak, alongside rich, sticky port notes, and a decadent sweetness in the palate.The “Founders' Collection" is the most exclusive offering, consisting of releases that commemorate brand anniversaries, special events, and milestones.
