The Story of Angel’s Envy Small Batch Artisan Bourbon

angels envy bourbon whiskey The Story of Angel’s Envy Small Batch Artisan BourbonLouisville, Kentucky – Louisville Distilling Company recently launched Angel’s Envy, a super-premium bourbon of uncompromising character and quality.  The highly anticipated small batch artisan bourbon is the culmination of Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s storied career.  One of the original pioneers of the premium bourbon and whiskey categories in the U.S., Lincoln came out of retirement to create the world’s finest bourbon on his own terms – with a simple desire to enjoy the art of making whiskey.  The Master Distiller, which many have called a living legend, brings with him more than 40 years of experience, having worked on world-class brands, such as Woodford Reserve and Jack Daniels.

The Louisville Distilling Company gave Lincoln complete creative freedom to create his bourbon, his own way.  He chose to return to the original way of producing whiskey – making decisions based on the specific taste profile he wants to achieve.  He will use locally sourced, non-GMO grains, Kentucky limestone water and hand-chosen port barrels shipped directly from Portugal. 

Each batch-or Expression, as Lincoln calls it-will be guided by his hand and allowed to develop naturally, creating nuances in the bourbon from year to year.  This year’s release is Expression 10/10, which possesses a warm spirit, lacking any hint of edginess with ephemeral hints of port wine and a rich amber hue.

The Expression is distilled for an unparalleled smoothness, aged for 4-6 years in American white oak barrels and finished in hand-selected port casks for an incremental 3-6 months.  The final result is exceptionally smooth, nuanced and refined bourbon.

“Angel’s Envy is a lot of things,” says Lincoln Henderson, Master Distiller, Angel’s Envy.  “It’s my life’s work.  It’s a whiskey of incomparable smoothness.  It takes into account over 200 years of bourbon heritage and mingles it with over 400 years of port wine heritage.  And it’s something I’m going to let develop each year so every batch will be a natural expression of the distiller’s craft.”

The bottle will be as iconic as the bourbon inside.  Made from perfume-grade glass in Italy and ceramic stamped with our iconic wings, the bottle is hand-filled, corked and crated in Louisville, Kentucky.

As far as the name, it’s well accepted in bourbon circles that each distillery owes a percentage of the bourbon in their barrels to the angels – known as the Angel’s Share.  But, Lincoln 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.  The result is Angel’s Envy.

Angel’s Envy is available in the following markets: Louisville, New York/New Jersey, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Houston, Dallas, Nashville, Madison/Milwaukee, Baltimore, Portland, Washington, DC, Detroit and Boulder/Denver.

The suggested retail price for a 750ml bottle, which may vary by market, is $44.99.  Angel’s Envy is 86.6 proof and 43.3% alcohol by volume.

Why Jack Daniel’s is Not a Bourbon: The Unique and Signature Charcoal Mellow

Jack Daniels Charcoal Mellow Why Jack Daniel’s is Not a Bourbon: The Unique and Signature Charcoal MellowBy Matt Goldstein

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey is made very much like a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey but can’t be considered bourbon because it’s not from Bourbon county Kentucky.  However, aside from geographical differences, the Jack Daniel’s Charcoal Mellow is unique and signature to Jack Daniel’s.  Jack Daniel’s and Bourbon Whiskey’s are made with the majority of the mash from corn, as opposed to rye or other grains like other whiskies.  However, before Jack Daniel’s is aged in newly charred new American white oak barrels, the Jack Daniel’s is dripped through charcoal.  This charcoal is made from sugar maple being drenched by 140 proof Jack Daniel’s whiskey and set on fire.  The result of the fire is sugar maple charcoal which is then packed into metal vats.  The Jack Daniel’s Whiskey is then slow dripped into the vatted charcoal sometimes taking about 3 days to reach the bottom.  The dripped charcoal mellowed whiskey is then placed in the newly charred white oak barrels for aging and maturation and that is the difference between Jack Daniel’s and Bourbon.

All three types of Jack Daniel’s have three different ages, Jack Daniel’s Old Number 7, Gentleman Jack, and Jack Daniels Single Barrel, but no specific aged is set for any of the whiskies.  Jack Daniel’s allows it’s tasters to decide when the whiskey is ready to be bottled.

The Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

wild turkey bourbon logo The Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey100% All Natural Whiskey

By Matt Goldstein

The Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon is made with an all natural process, taking much more time than normal whiskeys.  Coming out of the barrel at 109 proof, there is little water added to bring this whiskey to the 101 bottle proof.  A gold medalist at the 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Wild Turkey 101 is made with water, grain and yeast and always aged in newly charred American White Oak barrels with the heaviest and deep layer char.

Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Tasting Note:

The Wild Turkey 101 is smooth, grainy, very tasty and well balanced.  Crisp, with a good dry aftertaste and good warmth, we love this bourbon.  Cheers to Southwest for having this bourbon on the flight to Vegas.

Corralejo reposado tequila 240x300 Cantina Feliz: Outstanding Margarita’s, Taco’s, Saviche’s & Tequila’sCorrelejo Reposado Tequila

Aged for 4 months in three different types of cask barrel; French Oak, American Oak and White Oak, this unique three cask reposado tequila has won double gold medals twice and three separate gold medals in international spirit competitions.  The Correlejo Reposado has a scent of sweet caramel with a thick mellow sweet flavor.  This tequila has a great mouth feel, and dry complexity and aftertaste.   Correlejo is a solid reposado tequila.

.

Hornitos Reposado Tequila

The Hornitos Reposado is unique in that it is aged in large barrels and rarely touches the wood for a reposado tequila leaving it light in color.  Mostly, the flavor of the oak and wood that liquors are aged in provide much of the character.  Surprisingly, the Hornitos Reposado has a good oak flavor.  With sweet notes and hints of oak the Hornitos has good mouth feel with a salty finish.   

.

Casa Noble Reposado Tequila

The Casa Noble Reposado is aged for 364 days in new but lightly charred French White Oak Barrels.  364 days is the maximum time a tequila can be aged to be labeled a reposado.  It’s also much more expensive to age as there are investment and storing costs, along with the angels’ share, the amount of liquor that evaporates from the barrel overtime.  The longer it ages, the less you have.   The Casa Noble Reposado Tequila is smooth, sweet with a thick mouth feel and great vanilla flavor.  This is an excellent reposado with a great smooth finish.

.

El Tesoro Anejo Tequila

The Tequila Trials: Patron Silver, 1800 Silver, Casa Noble Crystal, Jose Cuervo, Patron Anejo & Cazedores Anejo Tequila’s

casa noble crystal blanco tequila1 191x300 The Tequila Trials: Patron Silver, 1800 Silver, Casa Noble Crystal, Jose Cuervo, Patron Anejo & Cazedores Anejo TequilasJose Cuervo Gold & Casa Noble Crystal Steal the Show!

By Dan Shapiro and Matt Goldstein

Our blind taste test Tequila Trials featured six randomly selected tequilas.  With three blanco tequilas tequila’s; Patron Silver, Casa Noble Crystal and 1800 Silver, and two Anejo’s or aged tequilas; Patron Anejo and Cazedores Anejo vs. Jose Cuervo Gold, all of the tequila’s selected were scored on style, flavor, complexity and overall distinction.  The anejo, or aged tequila’s are much darker and usually matured or in wooden or oak barrels, giving the tequila a more complex and flavorful taste.

.

Casa Noble Crystal Tequila

The Casa Noble Blanco Tequila was the clear winner of our silver/blanco tequila trials.  A triple gold medalist made from 100% Agave, Casa Noble Crystal Blanco Tequila is triple distilled and heated in stone ovens.  With Agave grown in the central lowlands, Casa Noble Agave is aged up to 14 years before being harvested while most other Agaves are aged for about 4 to 5 years.  The scent is a light agave with a spicy and complex flavor. The Casa Noble Crystal is very smooth with not much bite and a complex flavor in aftertaste.  This is an exceptional tequila!  We love it…  Casa Noble Crystal Tequila is priced at about $40.

.

patron silver pic The Tequila Trials: Patron Silver, 1800 Silver, Casa Noble Crystal, Jose Cuervo, Patron Anejo & Cazedores Anejo TequilasPatron Silver Tequila

Double distilled and made with 100% steam baked Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave, the Patron Silver is a crystal clear, very smooth and light flavored tequila.  With a small bite, and perhaps smoothest of all the silvers, the aftertaste is also very light.  The lack of flavor is the actual flavor in the Patron Silver.  There is nothing too overbearing which presents a clean, easy drinking style with mass appeal.  The Patron Silver is better than the 1800 Silver but it’s also twice the price, about $45.

.

1800 Silver Tequila

1800 Silver Tequila is made from 100% blue agave and mellowed in American Oak barrels for 15 days.  The 1800 Silver Tequila scent is a bit medicinal with hints of agave, very much like Patron.  The flavor is smooth but with a solid bite.  1800 Silver Tequila is a solid bar tequila and goes very well with mixed nuts.  “The agave, it’s in there!”  The 1800 Silver Tequila is priced at about $25.

.

jose cuervo gold 300x300 The Tequila Trials: Patron Silver, 1800 Silver, Casa Noble Crystal, Jose Cuervo, Patron Anejo & Cazedores Anejo TequilasJose Cuervo Especial Gold

Jose Cuervo Especial Gold is the #1 selling tequila in the world.  It’s also the most famous, and for good reason.  The Jose Cuervo Gold completely stole the show at our first ever tequila trials.  This everyday tequila, often considered average and just for mixing, is actually the perfect sipping tequila.  The Jose Cuervo Gold crushed Patron Anejo and Cazedores Anejo while performing better than any of the silvers as well.  The Jose Cuervo is spicy and sweet with an immediate bite.  With excellent flavors of oak, the full bite of the Cuervo Gold creates a complex and beautiful flavor.  Most people think that tequila must be smooth, but sometimes being exceptionally smooth is also excessively flavorless.  The flavor is in the bite and the oak!  Cuervo Gold is considered a joven tequila, blended with Reposado and other young tequilas.  Cuervo is rested in wood barrels for about 3 months, giving the tequila notes of oak and vanilla.  Jose Cuervo Gold is priced at about $20.

Double distilled and made with 100% steam baked Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave, The Patron Anejo is a blended tequila with all of parts of the blend aged for at least 12 months in small White Oak Barrels.  Not every blend of the Patron Anejo is quite the same.  The master distiller adjusts the blend of Anejo for each vintage.  The Patron Anejo Tequila is sweet with notes of honey and citrus.  Smooth but also complex with a good flavor, this is a much better tequila than the Patron Silver.  We love this tequila!  However, it was not really better then Jose Cuervo gold and it’s more than twice the price, about $45.

Cazadores Anejo Tequila is made from 100% Blue Agave from the Los Altos region of Jalisco and then aged for at least 12 months in small style American White Oak Cask barrels.  The Cazadores Anejo is smooth and flavorful with a dry aftertaste.  The flavor has notes of honey and nuts with the complexity of a light smooth whiskey because of the extensive aging for a tequila.  The Cazadores Anejo is very good but didn’t perform as well as the Jose Cuervo and Patron.  The Cazadores Anejo is priced at about $38.

Knob Creek 9 Years Aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

knob creek kentucky straight bourbon whiskey1 Knob Creek 9 Years Aged Kentucky Straight Bourbon WhiskeyThe Small Batch Collection from Jim Beam: Baker’s, Booker’s, Basil Hayden’s and Knob Creek

By Matt Goldstein

The Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon is an old school style of bourbon, made in the traditions of pre-prohibition whiskeys; strong, rich in flavor and prepared in small batches.  The entire small Jim Beam batch collection is made in this style; Booker’s, Baker’s, Basil Hayden’s and Knob Creek.  The Knob Creek small batch bourbon is aged for more than 9 years in charred American white oak barrels.  Knob Creek got its name from a creek close to the distillery and very close to the childhood home of Abe Lincoln.  As a boy, Abe Lincoln almost drowned in Knob Creek.  When the Lincoln family sold their home before moving to Indiana, some of the purchase was paid to the Lincoln’s in Bourbon.  While still living in Kentucky, Abe Lincoln’s father worked in a Bourbon distillery.           

The Knob Creek Flavor!

When the bottle is opened, the Knob Creek’s scent is of a sweet corn and oak.  In the glass the scent opens up to a wheat, rye wood and oak.  The flavor is a sweet corn, complex with a long warming.  On ice, the oak flavors and subtle notes of corn are exceptional.  The oak aftertaste is also exceptionally complex.  This is a classic bourbon and the small batch shines through in the taste.  We highly recommend Knob Creek.  Enjoy Knob Creek neat or on the rocks.  Since the Bourbon is bottled at 100 proof, a little ice can’t hurt.
