The Angels’ Share

The angels’ share of a spirit is the liquid lost to evaporation during aging in casks.  In low humidity water is primarily  lost and the distillers don’t mind so much.  But in high humidity situations the liquid lost consists mainly of alcohol and no one wants that do they now?  So keep it cool and dry for heaven’s sake.
