The Angels Share
The “Angels’ share” is a term for the portion (share) of a whisky that is lost to evaporation during aging in oak barrels. This can amount to 2% per year. In low humidity conditions, the loss to evaporation may be primarily water. However, in higher humidities, more alcohol than water will evaporate, therefore reducing the alcoholic strength of the product. In humid climates, this loss of ethanol is associated with the growth of a darkly colored fungus, the angels’ share fungus,on the exterior surfaces of buildings, trees, and other vegetation, and almost anything else that happens to be nearby.
Angels’ Nectar 1st Bottling is a blended malt from independent spirits bottlers Highfern (founded by Robert Ransom, formerly of Glenfarclas), crafted from Speyside and Highland malts. It has been inspired by the legend of the angels’ share, which attributes the evaporation of alcohol maturing in casks to some rather greedy angels. Angels’ Nectar is an attempt to re-create what those greedy angels could be enjoying. Sweet with orchard fruits, vanilla and citrus, balanced with Highland heather and spice
