Angel's Envy Cellar Collection 2020 Tawny Port Bourbon, $239
For the second release from the celebrated Cellar Collection, Angel's Envy selected their finest 10-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon from their oldest stocks and finished it in tawny port barrels for 10 months to create a uniquely complex, high-proof whiskey. Deeper and richer than your classic Angel’s Envy, evolving in the glass from saddle leather and old wood to fresh dark berries. A bit of baking cocoa arrives in time, as well, and those fresh fruits eventually dry out, baked in a warm tart with plenty of pie spice. It’s a nose you can, and should, spend some time with. The Tawny shows itself immediately on the front of the palate with a juicy dark raisin sweetness, but it isn’t jammy or cloyingly sweet and doesn’t overtake the more delicate elements. In fact, all the flavors here are impressively balanced with fresh peppercorn and cinnamon bark arriving on the mid-palate to mingle with the dark berries and a unique stone fruit note that adds a bit of bright complexity to an otherwise sultry dram. The finish is long and honeyed, with a touch of dark chocolate.

Murray Hill Club Special Release Batch #3 Cider & Malt Cask Bourbon, $176
Murray Hill Club Batch #3 was finished in malt and cider casks, which means the 10 to 20-year-old bourbons have an abundance of single malt barley notes as well as apple aromas, skin tannins, and residual yeast from the original cider fills, clocking in at a hefty 110 proof. Aromas of creamy brown butter with cinnamon toast, vanilla shortbread, gingersnap cookie, and Italian biscotti drizzled with thick apple blossom honey. As the whiskey notes evolve in the glass, the floral and fruity top notes of apple blossom give way to deeper, darker shades of marzipan, pear tart, oatmeal raisin cookie, and caramel pudding with sea salt. The initial palate entry has hints of yeast acidity and dryness from the cider, but quickly gives way to sweeter, more aromatic flavors of quince marmalade, cast iron skillet-baked Southern peach cobbler with a buttery yeast biscuit crust, followed by ephemeral notes of Atlantic Ocean brine. The whiskey finishes in a trio of waves of acidity, sweetness, apple skin tannins, barrel spice, and saline.
Blood Oath Pact No. #6 Bourbon, $99
A masterful union of well-bred bourbons - all made in Kentucky from traditional rye mash bills. One, a 14-year - dark with oak, leather and tobacco. Two, an 8-year - toasty warm with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. And three, a 7-year - full of roasted caramel and honeyed raisin, then rested and mellowed in Cognac casks for a finish that’s all Kentucky heat with a wisp of crème brulee sweet. “This particular pact is special in that the cognac barrels added some sweetness and a slight fruity, brandy flavor to the bourbon, creating an amazing taste profile,” said Head Distiller Rempe. “When selecting these bourbons, I wanted to see how these flavors meshed together and I have to say the result was spectacular."
