First, notice the crystalclear quality with a rich, reddish amber color. Next, you’ll smell the aromas of citrus, caramel candy, maple sugar, vanilla oak, hazelnut, spice, and sherry wood. Finally, taste sweet rum sherry wood and soft oak with a finish that’s both sweet and dry, as well as quick and easy.
The folks at Angelâ€™s Envy once again push the envelope with this 95 percent rye whiskey finished in Caribbean rum casks. Vibrant, spicy rye notes of cinnamon and mint are tamed by rich maple syrup, graham cracker crust, nutty toffee, candy floss, subtle tropical fruit, and creamy vanilla. Warm, spicy, rummy finish. This is a mood whiskey, not one I would drink every day, but the flavors marry nicely and the sweetness tames this high-testosterone rye whiskey. Bonus points for uniqueness. 90 points Whisky Advocate. The Bayway Tasting Team concurs. This is one special Rye, the rum cask imparts a delightful maple syrup coating the apple, peach and apricot fruit reminiscent of breakfast at the Waffle House, If there is a Rye to drink with your pancakes, it's this one!
