    I like this one quite a bit as well Joe, but hadn't thought of it as a dessert bourbon. What a great idea! I have a feeling my open bottle isn't going to last very long now.

    They're supposed to be coming out with a barrel-strength version by year end.

    I've not tried any version, but from what I've read I think this would get my attention.

    that's what Wes Henderson said a few months ago. Several folks here have sampled the BS version. I think it will happen... But the date may slip somewhat (depending on your location)

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I was recently informed that the barrel strength release is being delayed until Mar/Apr 2012.

    Re: BOTM 10/11: Angel's Envy

    Finally picked up a bottle of this while in Dallas. As I mentioned in an early post it cost me over $500 for the bottle. $50 for the bottle and $500 for the deductible for the fender bender I had in a rental car on the way back to the Fairmont. For the money there are bourbons I'd rather get as I found it light but with the sweetest finished I have experienced in a bourbon. I would love to try the barrel strength. Question: Do they plan on eventually producing their own bourbon or will they always buy stock?

    I'm not sure I've ever had something worth $550 / bottle, unless it was the size of a keg.

    I read somewhere that the eventual plan was to prodcue, but I can't remember if I saw that here or elsewhere. I also don't know the timetable.

    We will be producing eventually, most likely starting sometime next year. As for locations, we will certainly be in Kentucky. Louisville would be ideal for us (main street), but there are some other locations on the table as well.


    And if it sounds like I might have an "in", it's because I am the third generation Henderson! Long time reader, but recently joined the forums.
