Angel’s Envy Nicholas Single Barrel Reserve #1


One distillery that I’ve been really anxious to taste through their private barrels has been Angel’s Envy. A private barrel selection from A.E . is about as rare as a Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl parade. We all are sure that it’s happened, but does anybody really remember seeing one? With so few in the market place I was pretty confident I was going to be able to snag a gem.

Angel’s Envy is rightfully very popular and their prices tend to be on the higher side, but there’s a few good reasons for that beyond the obvious ‘supply and demand’. AE only makes small-batch whiskey and they do it with their own in-house process that involves a port wine barrel finish. It’s a very deliberate process, and although well worth it, that contributes to the cost. So does the highest quality of ingredients. High-quality grains make high quality whiskies. A lot of folks cut corners, the folks at AE do not.
