    Re: Angel's Envy Cask Strength

    This is a cross-post as it applies to two threads. The other is here.

    After reading this and the Garrison Brothers Cowboy Bourbon threads, both revived from the dead, the similarities are obvious. Craft distiller(producer) has a unique/special/exceptional product and chooses to sell for an amount of money that reaches beyond the price points of mature, established and respected labels. SB.com members, on cue, proclaim their disgust for such an egregious, greedy decision and most have never even tried the product.


    Without trying to define my opinion, I will get to the summary:


    More power to them, and the big boys should learn a thing or two. I think it's ignorant for ORVW, BT and HH to not profit (more) from the hype of their limited release products. If it takes a $150 (AE CS) or $160 (GB Cowboy Bourbon) price tag and a limited release to market a unique/special/exceptional product, all the better! AE and Garrison aren't going to generate enough revenue to support their businesses from these limited releases, but they are getting their best product in the hands of their best customers who will likely purchase across their entire portfolio. And the best part, it's good whisky!!!


    Bravo!

    I finally managed to acquire the new AECS release this week thanks to a fellow SBer who was willing to pick it up for me and carry it back. I have no regret purchasing either this years bottle or last years edition and would probably get at least one more if I could! I think it is exceptional whiskey and while I would love it even more at a friendlier price point the cost is what it is and you just have to decide for yourself if it is worth it.

    I truly wish all of it went into the hands of people who planned to drink (or share!) all the special release type of whiskey they purchase. Sadly, I am not sure "best customers" necessarily equates to how I would define that, i.e. customers who intend to drink and share what they buy versus flipping the whiskey. I am sure both of these are getting flipped.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I don't think we will see the Cask Strength any time soon (I hope I am wrong!). Probably not before the end of next year at the earliest at which point it likely will be the 2014 version. Still hoping AE rye makes it here this spring.

    Re: Angel's Envy Cask Strength

    Ok I live in S.W. Florida and have recently returned to Bourbon after many years of being away.. Today I picked up Two bottles of the AE Cask Strength to go along with the two bottles of regular Port Wine Finish and the One Bottle of Rye I have in hand.. I plan to save these for the time being and open on very special days etc. .. My wife and I will be building a new home one of these days and I plan on having a very nice game room bar/den/office built.. I can see my Bourbon Bar and the Bourbons I plan on stocking on my current Vision Board. I amy even go back and see tomorrow if the third bottle this store got in is still available.. I do feel over time.. This maybe a bottling I maybe able to use for barter etc.. Cheers.. Creggor
