    I have had several people tell me almost the same,would you say it's worth the $70 premium it commands or even go as far say it's unique enough for a repeat purchase?I'm really on the fence on this one,can you tell?

    Re: Angel's Envy Rye

    I've only had the one taste so far, so I won't speak on repeat purchases, but I don't regret the one buy even if I don't (immediately) think it's worth the $70. Can you tell that I'm also well on that fence? I'll post some additional notes as I get into it more. I will say again that it's very unique and quite good. Probably will make for great sipping on these hot summer days. I may even throw a lil umbrella in my Glencairn.

    Presumably that would be a red umbrella.

    Funny you say that, i ran across is today @ $70, flinched when i saw the price. Guess i hadn't been paying attention to the details earlier in the thread. So so many other great pours out there for less i went another direction. While i like the regular AE product, i view it as more a dessert drink and i'm usually in the mood for the more standard bourbon profiles.

    In that case I'm having desert first.

    Re: Angel's Envy Rye

    Still quite sweet, but much more spice tonight and am enjoying it a good bit more. Leaning towards second bottle more. More studying is in order.

    Angel's Envy Rye

    Finally getting around to revisiting this a couple weeks after opening it... Still weird, it is almost like I take a sip of LDI rye and then take a sip of rum let them mingle in my mouth for a second and then swallow... I don't know if it is the rum and rye not complimenting each other or if the flavors are so different it just sends my palate in 2 separate directions? I don't know if I like it but I keep drinking it so I guess that means something?
