    So this is the 98pt Wine Enthusiast Magazine scoring Angel's Envy Bourbon. It comes in this kind of douchy bottle and honestly didn't want to be interrsted in, but couldn't help myself, it's finished in port !! That's pretty special I think.

    So hey, it's pretty good. I was kind of expecting more though, like a cherry pie and a massage, maybe even more. Not quite what I got, but it is tasty. And it smells great. It sort of tastes and smells like a jar of those really red jarred cherries, with a bit of vanilla.

    I don't know if I like it more than Woodford Reserve, but I do definetely enjoy it. At this early stage in my whisky drinking life I cannot say that I have definete prefrences, right now I can tell you for sure that I am enjoying trying everything I've had, although I kind of can't appreciate Jameson anymore unless I'm at a bar doing shot of Jameson and a can of PBR deals.

    I've Had That.

    While I do believe Angel's Envy is a bit overrated by the masses it is a very good bourbon. The final 3 shots in the bottle are the best. Good stuff but not one of my favorites.

    I've had that.

    However, it didn't crest my top 10 of bourbons tried lately. Seemed a bit soft for all the hype. Granted, it was sandwiched between two stellar bourbons at a party, so it may need a do over.

    Picked up a bottle of it mainly to see what all the hoopla about it is.

    That's when you polish off a bottle in one night?

    I have to agree with you. Woodford is one of my favorites but the double oak Woodford is the best

    I've had that!

    AE is one of my favorites, along with buffalo trace. I stumbled upon AE long before there was any hype. Also, give their rye a shot. Levels above the bourbon.

    AE, is one of my easy going rainy sunday morning kinda drinks, something cozy and familiar about drinking it. One of the bottles I try to keep on hand in the bar.

    I've had that. Didn't care for the port finish at all. Being recommended by a few people but I didn't like it.
