    Chuck, it was my understanding that they were getting ready to move out on the distillery....has something happened this week to change those plans ?

    Re: Angel's Envy Rye

    Pardon me if it's already been noted, but is this a one time release?

    The story I got was that the rum cask finish was a limited release. But there was going to be a standard issue AE rye. Unclear on what the finish will be.

    Can anyone confirm or debunk?

    Can neither confirm or debunk but I was told more of the 100 proof rum cask finished rye is supposed to be coming. It will reportedly be getting a wider release later in the year. I have heard that another round of the Cask Strength port finished AE Bourbon may also be coming by the end of the year.

    Given that AE is building its strong rep on finished whiskey I would be surprised if they released a rye that had not been finished in something. Maybe port like the bourbon version?

    Or yet another type of finish? Based on the quality of their products so far I am certainly interested in giving another finish a try if they have another one up their sleeve!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Just the opposite. The distillery is still nothing but vague talk. Believe it when you see it. I'm not saying it won't happen, but remember Willett. For about 20 years, it was always right around the corner. Yes, they did eventually crank up the stills, and so might the Hendersons. At this point, I don't see why they would. The company is doing just fine without it.

    Re: Angel's Envy Rye

    $80 is way high and unfortunately the Angel's Envy Rye isn't spectacular. For $40 you can get a bottle of Russell's Reserve 6 year rye which is outstanding! I do like the idea of rum finishing though, I just don't know if a rye is the one to do it with and certainly not with casks as wet as were used for Angel's Envy.

    Yeah you can keep that RR Rye. That's not to say I'm getting the AE, but I've heard much more good than bad regarding it.

    I'd like to see this come to fruition. I have to believe that they would be able to experiment a lot more with their own equipment. I've been impressed with the juice the Henderson's have put forward thus far....just not the price tags.

    But hey, I never begrudge anyone for making a profit, especially if the market will pay the asking prices. Nice whiskies for sure, just not worth it to me for what they are asking. Too many other great whiskies out there vying for my $$ at lower prices. To each his own.
