In bourbon-making parlance, "angel's share" refers to the portion of whiskey lost to evaporation during the aging process.
After crafting his latest bourbon, seasoned whiskey producer Lincoln Henderson (formerly of Woodford Reserve and Old Forester, and who has since passed away) declared his new concoction "Angel's Envy," claiming that heavenly beings would no doubt want even more of this divine drink. The bourbon starts with corn and rye, is aged in American white oak barrels for four to six years, and then aged for three to six additional months in port casks. Displaying a luminous gold-copper color, this newcomer to the bourbon world exhibits a light, playful flavor on the tongue, followed by a long finish with hints of orange zest, making it both seductive and accessible to those wary of whiskey. If not straight up, mix into the new-age classic Bufala Negra.
