From the company website:
“Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award-winning spirit. It’s typically aged for up to 6 years. Once it’s deemed ready, we finish our bourbon in ruby port wine casks, which adds subtly distinct flavor nuances that enhance the whiskey without challenging it. Our port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste. We use 60-gallon ruby port barrels made from French oak and imported directly from Portugal. This creates a whiskey of unprecedented smoothness, sweetness and balance.“

The scents overall are actually quite surface level, very much reminding me of 1792 Barton’s Thomas Moore Port Finish Bourbon, but less port-forward and not quite as interesting either. That makes sense since Thomas Moore was finished for 1-3 years in Port, while Angel’s Envy is around 3-6 months. So while I enjoy smelling it, I’m not amazed or captivated.
