Heaven’s Door Spirits, which produces Bob Dylan’s ever-evolving collection of American whiskeys, announced today the release of its Bootleg Series Vol II.
The Bootleg Series is a limited-edition collection of rare whiskeys and special blends, with fewer than 3,000 bottles offered.
The 2020 Bootleg Series offering features a cask strength 15 year-old Straight Bourbon finished in 30 year-old Jamaican Pot Still Rum Casks.
Heaven’s Door Master Blender, Ryan Perry said. “I was intrigued by the idea of using Jamaican pot still rum casks to imbue the 15 year-old cask strength whiskey with a soft, round and lasting finish that is distinctive and complex. After nearly a year in the rum barrels, the whiskey yielded “hints of maple syrup on the nose, notes of toasted coconut, holiday spice, and toasted oak on the finish.”
The Bootleg Series Vol II comes in a handmade ceramic bottle featuring Bob Dylan’s painting, Sunset, Monument Valley, and is housed in an ornate leather journal that is individually numbered.
With fewer than 3,000 bottles for sale at a suggested retail price of $499.99, Bootleg Series Vol II is available for pre-order on ReserveBar.com and will be available in select retailers in early November.
