Score: 89 points
Ryes don’t always take cask finishes as well as Bourbons do, largely because of their tendency to be a bit spicier. The Ice Cider cask finish works with this Angel’s Envy Rye, though. The nose has an apple tartness with subtle hints of baking spices, honey, vanilla, and a touch of oak. The taste is very tart, thick, and spicy with red apples, nutmeg, a hint of cinnamon, allspice, and touches of dark fruits in the background. The finish is long, spicy, and tart with a nice touch of oak. (March, 2022)
