Louisville Distilling Company is a relatively new player to the bourbon industry. Started in 2010 by Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson (an inaugural member of the Bourbon Hall of Fame), who had more than 40 years of experience working for world class brands such as Woodford Reserve and Jack Daniels. Lincoln wanted to create the world’s finest bourbon, by returning to the original process of hand-blending whiskey in small batches of 8 to 10 barrels. The name started from the term “Angel’s Share” which is the percentage of evaporated bourbon that is lost during the aging process. As Lincoln Henderson said, “[I] sat the angels down and got them to agree that they could take a larger share if they agreed to leave behind something even better.” Hence, Angel’s Envy was born. Wine Enthusiast Magazine awarded Angel’s Envy http://www.angelsenvy.com/ 98 out of 100 points which is the highest-ever rating for a bourbon.

Angel’s Envy Bourbon Port Cask Finish (aka Expression 10/10) is described as “a warm spirit, lacking any hint of edginess with ephemeral hints of port wine and rich amber hue.” It is distilled for an unparalleled smoothness, aged for 4 to 6 years in American white oak barrels and finished in hand-selected port casks for a incremental 3 to 6 months. The result is exceptionally smooth, nuanced, and refined bourbon. Tasting notes: vanilla, spice, and oak flavors.

Manhattan made with Angel’s Envy, Sweet Vermouth, and Angostura Bitters. Musty, oak, and vanilla aromatics were experienced. It had a strong alcohol taste with classic masculine flavor and menthol backend – reminded me of my grandpa. Possible food pairings would be chargrilled steak, black forest ham sandwich on squaw bread, or dark chocolate dessert.

Drink one of the finest bourbons around and toast your drink to Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson who passed away too soon last year at the sprite age of 75.
