    Angel's Envy

    Has anyone tried this? I am thinking of getting some, but was looking for opinions first. Thanks for your input.

    It's a right whiskey. Definitely not obtuse or acute.

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

    Angel's envy is really tasty. Buy it.

    Honestly though the bourbon or rye?I would honestly give the nod to the rye,both rather good but to me fall into a mood pour or digestif category.Both worthy of a try,maybe at a bar or restaurant first though before you splurge.

    what are some things you like to enjoy on a regular basis? that might help people give you an idea if it might fit your profile or not.

    the rye, in particular, I suggest you try by the glass somewhere. Its a very peculiar distinct profile that I find to be a bit polarizing

    Personally I love the Rye even though I am not a rye guy. It is very unique and I argee with others that it is a "mood" pour. Almost desert like. The regular stuff is too light for me. Most likely won't ever buy it again

    I have a pour of the regular when I want something sweet. Dessert is a good description.

    Haven't had the rye but the Cask Strength is very tasty.

    I think the bourbon is just fine, but a bit meh at $40. Like many $40-$50 bourbons, I'd take ETL, EC 12, and FRSB over them at $30 or less. Now the rye, however, I find to be fantastic. It is not an every day pour, but is a must-own IMHO. Very unique.

    I wasn't a big fan of standard AE. It's OK, just not a flavor I particularly enjoyed. The Cask Strength is in a whole different category. The port finish isn't as prominent in the CS.
    haven't tried the Rye.
    YMMV.
