Yesterday, Heaven's Door Whiskey announced a rare, 26-year-old spirit aged in Japanese Oak Barrels. It's being dubbed: "The Bootleg Series", named in tribute to Bob Dylan's series of archive albums. It will feature annual limited-edition releases of new whiskeys. If this sounds like your cup of liquid, better jump on a pre-order. Only 3,000 bottles are for sale at $499.99 a whack for a 750ml bottle.
But wait......there's more......Each annual release will be presented in hand-made ceramic bottles and come with one of Dylan's paintings and arrive in a collectible case. You can clink on the link HERE for more details and find out which U.S. retailers will be offering it in December. Perfect for that "hard-to-shop-for" Dylan Fan on your list. (they're gonna LOVE you) So what does it taste like? In this article from Maxim, Heaven's Door Master Distiller Ryan Perry says:
The unusually long maturity of the whisky is balanced with the acquired notes of coconut, coriander and a native incense of clove. The Mizunara Oak offers an exotic taste and lingering finish found in some of the best Japanese whiskies. We've been working on this release for many years and are thrilled with the end result."
