The Whiskey Hunt Australia crew have found a way to make the impossible happen, a single barrel Angel's Envy in Australia! This is in collaboration with Bourbon Brothers Australia & The Prime Barrel out of NY, USA.
"The winning barrel (#2980) stood out for several reasons. First, it has an incredible nose (more on that below) - it just blew other samples we tasted away right from the get-go. Second, the' very bold flavour. Even though this is a manageable 108 Proof (by single barrel standards), it does drink a lot bolder than that."
Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Finished in Port Wine Barrels
Mash Bill: 72% corn, 18% rye, 10% malted barley
Barrel Char: #3
Nose: Superb and complex. Port influence is very much there, and you also get distinct notes of maraschino cherries, raisinets, caramelized banana, marzipan. If you are a Starbucks drinker, you'll get notes of their banana nut bread.
Palate: Spice bomb! You'll get allspice, dry orange peel/zest, white pepper, cocoa bibbs, and even bold espresso flavour.
Finish: Medium to long. That spice stays with you for a minute.
As this is a split barrel project we only have 90 bottles available. Australia is unlikely to see another Angels Envy barrel pick for 2-3 years, so grab one while you can!
