    Typically AE is finished the the port wood for around 3-6 months. The cask strength, when actually bottled, will have been in the port wood for around 22 months depending on when we actually get around to putting it in the bottle. So we took our 4/5/6 year old bourbon, then basically finished it for 2 years. Current proofs coming out of the barrels are around 122-123. This was as of the first week of March, when I last pulled a sample. Of course this could change but I don't expect it to be drastic.

    Re: Angel's Envy Cask Strength Question

    I met Lincoln a year ago in Austin during a bottle signing. Then two weeks ago Wes, his son came to town and I got a bottle signed by him.
    We talked awhile about their new cask strength coming out this fall. He told me to shoot him an email and he would send me a sample this fall.
    Well look what came from FedEx today. I have not tried it yet, it was sitting outside all day and is a bit hot being in Texas. I was surprised to get a sample so soon. Maybe they will have it on the market sooner than later.
    Thanks Wes!

    I had a taste at WhiskeyFest, so they've obviously got the whiskey selected. No reason to think they won't stick to their release schedule.

    Re: Angel's Envy Cask Strength Question

    Very much looking forward to this one.

    Any guesses as to price? My apologies if I missed that info in the thread.

    Re: Angel's Envy Cask Strength Question

    I thought it interesting that in addition to the long reported Angel's Envy cask strength this fall there was mention by John Hansell on his blog of a second pending release from Angel's Envy of a "high-rye" whiskey (Don't know if that means a high rye bourbon or another mystery rye from LDI/MGP/whatever the alphabet soup is today or some other source that will be finished in Caribbean rum casks.

    Has there been previous talk of this? Couldn't find it on an intial search.

    I know some don't care much for "finished" whiskey but it sounded interesting to me. I like the current Angel's Envy well enough to want to give it a try if I get the chance. As it happens "very interesting" was the phrase used on the website to describe them both. Not sure if that is a good hing or a bad thing.

    Or perhaps an intentional attempt to be non-specific?

    At the KBF, Wes told me that only 600 bottles of Cask Strength will be available. So it will be hard to find.

    Good Day All-

    Any more news on this? Finally had my first taste of the regular release and enjoyed it but would really enjoy it much more at a higher proof.

    Best regards, Tony

    Go to the Nov. 14th post. I sure hope he's wrong about the price
