Bob Dylan’s portfolio of award-winning American whiskeys, Heaven’s Door Spirits, has announced 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. Now, those barrels are 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 wrought from a decade of barrel aging. This release is neither chill-filtered nor charcoal-mellowed, which allows the bold flavors of the rye to come through along with sweet notes of toffee and bitter chocolate 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.”
Heaven’s Door has won countless awards recognizing the brand as one of the world’s best small batch whiskeys available on the market today, 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. For the future, the brand has not set anything in stone but is anticipating subsequent Decade Series releases to include a wheated bourbon and rye whiskey.
