Bob Dylan’s portfolio of award-winning American whiskeys, Heaven’s Door Spirits, is getting a little larger thanks to the inaugural release of its Decade Series.
The Decade Series is a limited collection of super-premium American whiskeys, each 10 years of age or older. The first release in the series is a high-rye 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskey.
The Decade Series collection began over 10 years ago when the founders of Heaven’s Door hand-selected barrels from small producers across the country. Those barrels are now ready to be shared.
The inaugural release in the Decade Series lineup, a high-rye 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskey, is bottled at 100 proof to highlight the nuances and flavors brought from a decade of barrel aging. This release is neither chill-filtered nor charcoal-mellowed, which allows the flavors of the rye to come through along with notes of toffee and bitter chocolate followed by a long, 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.”
Heaven’s Door has won numerous awards since its launch, including the #1 Consumer Choice Award at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and “Best Bourbons of the Century…So Far” by the Robb Report.
The brand has not set any future plans in stone but is anticipating subsequent Decade Series releases to include a wheated bourbon and rye whiskey.
The limited-edition Decade Series Release #01 has a suggested retail price of $99.00. It is now available at ReserveBar.com and select retailers nationwide.
