Bob Dylan has actually launched the 2nd version of his Heaven’s Door Bootleg Series bourbon this wintertime—heating up the period with Bootleg Vol. II; it’s exotic, with a rum surface.
Dylan’s bourbon brand name launched in 2018, debuting 3 sourced scotches consisting of a rye and also a bourbon. We were followers of those delicious containers (despite the fact that they were a little regular). Since after that, he’s been active obtaining strange in the very best means feasible.
Whereas those first launches were committed crowd-pleasers for the wider bourbon enthusiast, the limited-edition Bootleg Series debuted in 2014 with an eccentric pedigree: a low-rye bourbon aged 26 years and also ended up in Japanese Mizunara oak, among the rarest oak types worldwide (and also a tasty completing active ingredient when well-applied).
We were followers of that bourbon, therefore we anticipate huge points from the recently introduced Bootleg Vol. II.
It ought to be kept in mind, incidentally, that right now all Heaven’s Door bourbon is sourced, not distilled in home. While a distillery has actually been produced for the brand name, none of this supply (or any type of for the following half-decade) will certainly originate from it.
Volume II doesn’t have the remarkable age declaration of its precursor, yet it’s similarly tempting. The 2nd launch will certainly include 15-year-old bourbon supply ended up in Jamaican pot still rum barrels.
“Distinctly richer with slightly tropical notes from the fermentation process,” Heaven’s Door discusses, “this cask strength 104.6 proof Tennessee whiskey boasts an abundance of maple syrup on the nose, with a finish that brings forward notes of toasted coconut, holiday spice, and toasted oak, where the influence from the sugar cane and rum extraction shines.”
One intriguing point to note is this launch divulges that the bourbon concerned undertook the Lincoln County procedure—a charcoal sweetening filtering procedure usual to Tennessee bourbon manufacturers. The procedure is done after purification and also prior to barreling, which would certainly imply this bourbon needed to originate from either distilleries that have actually been running that lengthy: Dickel or Jack Daniel’s… and also Dickel is understood for offering sourced supply.
According to the distillery, Bootleg Vol. II is bottled in hand-crafted ceramic containers that “feature one of Bob Dylan’s classic paintings, Sunset. Monument Valley, housed in beautifully designed and individually numbered collectible leather journals.”
Only 3,000 containers of this unusual bourbon are readily available, with a high cost of $500 a container. That’s not unusual nowadays for unusual supply launches, as long as we despise to confess…and also at 15 years, this is old sufficient to be some really unique bourbon.
