Bob Dylan has unveiled the 2nd edition of his Heaven’s Doorway Bootleg Sequence whiskey this winter—warming up the time with Bootleg Vol. II it’s tropical, with a rum finish.
Dylan’s whiskey brand name introduced in 2018, debuting 3 sourced whiskeys together with a rye and a bourbon. We ended up admirers of those tasty bottles (even even though they have been a minor usual). Considering that then, he’s been occupied obtaining strange in the best way probable.
While these original releases ended up focused group-pleasers for the broader whiskey lover, the limited-edition Bootleg Collection debuted very last 12 months with a quirky pedigree: a minimal-rye bourbon aged 26 yrs and completed in Japanese Mizunara oak, 1 of the rarest oak species in the environment (and a delicious ending ingredient when perfectly-applied).
We had been lovers of that whiskey, and so we anticipate huge points from the newly announced Bootleg Vol. II.
It should be pointed out, by the way, that at the minute all Heaven’s Door whiskey is sourced, not distilled in dwelling. When a distillery has been made for the manufacturer, none of this inventory (or any for the following fifty percent-decade) will appear from it.
Quantity II does not have the extraordinary age assertion of its predecessor, but it’s similarly engaging. The 2nd launch will element 15-yr-outdated bourbon stock concluded in Jamaican pot even now rum casks.
“Distinctly richer with marginally tropical notes from the fermentation method,” Heaven’s Door describes, “this cask strength 104.6 proof Tennessee whiskey boasts an abundance of maple syrup on the nose, with a end that delivers forward notes of toasted coconut, vacation spice, and toasted oak, wherever the impact from the sugar cane and rum extraction shines.”
One exciting matter to observe is this launch discloses that the whiskey in query underwent the Lincoln County process—a charcoal mellowing filtration process widespread to Tennessee whiskey makers. The course of action is completed right after distillation and right before barreling, which would indicate this whiskey had to arrive from one of two distilleries that have been working that extended: Dickel or Jack Daniel’s… and Dickel is regarded for selling sourced inventory.
According to the distillery, Bootleg Vol. II is bottled in handmade ceramic bottles that “feature a single of Bob Dylan’s vintage paintings, Sunset. Monument Valley, housed in wonderfully created and independently numbered collectible leather-based journals.”
Only 3,000 bottles of this rare whiskey are obtainable, with a steep price tag of $500 a bottle. Which is not unusual these days for rare stock releases, as substantially as we detest to confess it…and at 15 years, this is aged ample to be some definitely a single-of-a-sort whiskey.
