This special release is born of a blend of whiskeys that is finished for a year in Madeira casks provides notes of baked raisin, toasted oak and almond. While most Madeira-finished whiskeys typically spend three to six months in barrels to pick up the fruit notes from the wine, Angel’s Envy extended its finishing period to add deeper wood notes and an extra layer of complexity. The result is a vibrant whiskey that offers notes of caramelized banana, brown sugar, raisins, almonds and faint cherry on the nose, as well as notes of oak, grass, smoke, leather, chocolate and dried cherries on the palate. The finish lingers with notes of almond and hazelnut.
