Angel’s Envy launches Cellar Collection Series Volumes 1-3 featuring whiskeys finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks, Tawny Port Wine Barrels, and Madeira Casks.
Angel’s Envy has made its lauded Cellar Collection Series Volumes 1-3 available to the public for the first time. This release features three 375ml bottles from the highly acclaimed collection, each featuring bourbons finished in distinctive fortified wine casks. It includes whiskeys finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks, Tawny Port Wine Barrels, and Madeira Casks.
“The Cellar Collection Series provides a tasting experience by comparing and contrasting the fortified wine finishes of these special whiskeys side-by-side,” says Owen Martin, Master Distiller at Angel’s Envy. “Limited in nature, our first three Cellar Collections eluded many fans – the Cellar Collection Series is a second chance to savor them for the first time.”
Launched in 2019, the Cellar Collection is Angel’s Envy’s special release program led by Master Distiller Owen Martin. Each expression offers a unique tasting experience, and the Louisville-based brand recommends sipping the expressions chronologically to enjoy the whiskies at their fullest potential.
- Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks (100-proof; 50% ABV): With a sweet nose featuring hints of raisin and hazelnut, this bourbon delivers an oak-forward palate, distinct dryness from the sherry, and finishes with a shift from sweetness to lingering floral.
- Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Tawny Port Wine Barrels (111.6-proof; 55.8% ABV): Boasting a nose of dry fruit and oak, this bourbon delivers black pepper, toasted nuts, delicate cinnamon spice, and a light, lingering finish reminiscent of dried fruit dipped in dark chocolate.
- Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Madeira Casks (100-proof; 50% ABV): Caramelized banana, brown sugar, freshly baked raisins, almonds, and faint cherry notes define the nose of this bourbon. The palate is rich with toasted oak, grass, smoke, leather, chocolate, and dried cherries, culminating in a satisfying finish with notes of almonds and hazelnuts.
Only 8,000 units of the Cellar Collection Series will be available for purchase at select retailers in the U.S., including the Angel’s Envy distillery in downtown Louisville at a suggested retail price of $399.99.
