A beautiful, mouthwatering newcomer to the whiskey scene. Named for the 'angel’s share,' the portion that evaporates from the barrel during the aging process, this golden amber spirit is finished in Port barrels, which explains those juicy red-fruit notes that slide into the long finish. Look for orange peel, vanilla and roasted nut flavors, too. (KN)
Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey finished in a port pipe. This is veteran master distiller Lincoln Henderson’s newest creation, and it's a beauty. Richly textured, silky, and well-rounded, with ripe berried fruits, candied tangerine, light toffee, maple syrup, and creamy vanilla, sprinkled with spice (cinnamon, hint of mint). Smooth, silky finish, and dangerously drinkable! The port pipe notes dovetail perfectly. Lovely just the way it is, but it's begging for a cigar. My only gripe: why not 45 or 50% ABV? But I'm splitting hairs. I really enjoy this stuff! (Vol. 20, #1)

I picked this up on a strong recommendation from a buyer at another store. <br><br>The aroma is fantastic: layers of toffee, oak, vanilla, caramel, and grapes (port). The taste leaves something to be desired. It's incredibly nutty, with washes of oak and vanilla, but there is very little caramel or grape presence. It's not awful, but it's unremarkable for the price. I found myself more enthused by the Elijah Craig 18 in the same price class.
