CASK STRENGTH: STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY EDITION
Crafted by our Master Distiller, Owen Martin, we are thrilled to introduce our first-ever Angel’s Envy 2023 Cask Strength Rye Whiskey Finished in Sauternes and Toasted Oak Barrels at 114.4-proof (57.2% ABV). This inaugural Cask Strength Rye launch blends two incredibly unique barrels rather than the more familiar Rum-barrel finish, offering an innovative flavor profile with delightfully creamy notes. We invite you to collect and savor this special limited-edition release, now available in select states and at the Angel’s Envy Distillery.
A NOTE FROM OWEN
CASK STRENGTH, REDEFINED
I put a special touch on this release by blending barrels selected first-hand of two rye whiskeys – one finished in Sauternes Casks and the other finished in Toasted Oak Barrels. These special barrels offer distinct notes in the whiskey, giving each Cask Strength release a unique nose, palate, and finish. While experimenting with blending, I found that they complemented each other and couldn’t imagine cutting the blend down. And so, Cask Strength Rye was born.
With my first Angel’s Envy Cask Strength release, I aim to share not only the rich flavors but also the stories and emotions blended into each sip.
NOSECreme brûlée with a hint of orange zest. Ripe honeycrisp apple and buckwheat.
PALATEHoneyed pears, with rye spices, nutmeg, and well-integrated oak. Sweet cream and caramelized sugar.
FINISHFruity cream soda and floral blanc vermouth. Sweet spices slowly fade into pleasant notes of black tea and leather.
With only 5,500 bottles crafted, this Cask Strength Rye is perfect for any whiskey connoisseur’s collection.
