Bob Dylan’s award-winning American whiskey brand, Heaven’s Door Spirits, has launched the inaugural release in its new expression range, Decade Series.
Starting over 10 years ago, when the founders of Heaven’s Door hand-selected barrels from small producers across the country, the Decade Series will feature limited collection of super-premium American whiskeys, each 10 years of age or older, with the first release being a high-rye 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskey.
Bottled at 100 proof to highlight the nuances and flavors wrought from a decade of barrel aging, the inaugural release in the Decade Series is neither chill-filtered nor charcoal-mellowed, which allows the bold flavors of the rye to come through.
On the nose, the expression features Maple, butterscotch, poached pear and banana, while sweet notes of toffee and bitter chocolate are found on the palette, followed by a long, silky-smooth finish.
“We’ve been patiently waiting on our barrels of aged liquid to mature to the optimal flavor profile for many years, and we are thrilled to release them for our fans to enjoy. When we sourced these barrels from our industry partners years ago, the product was phenomenal, but we purposely let some of them sit for several additional years to get even better…” said Heaven’s Door Master Blender Ryan Perry.
“Our first release is whiskey the world has not yet tasted. This Tennessee bourbon has a mash bill that’s non-traditional to all other whiskeys ever created from the state, with 22% rye and without charcoal mellowing. The distillation is much more reminiscent of what you would expect from a traditional Kentucky bourbon.”
Best enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of water, the release will be available throughout the USA or via the Heaven’s Door website.
