Heaven's Door Tennessee Bourbon
You Save: £10.00
Our first celebrity whiskey! Heaven’s Door is a Tennessee bourbon co-created by (you guessed it) Bob Dylan, with the help of master blender Ryan Perry. Clearly named after Dylan’s little-known hit, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, the whiskey itself isn’t distilled by a Heaven’s Door Distillery, though there are indeed plans for such a place in the pipeline – located in a church in downtown Nashville where Dylan recorded four albums, no less.
The straight bourbon is distilled, aged, and bottled in Tennessee, produced from a sour mash made up of 70% corn and 30% ‘small grains’ (such as rye or wheat). It took over 100 different variations before the blend for Heaven’s Door was created! The whiskey is matured for at least six years in American oak barrels, it’s full of buttery sweetness, with jammy fruits, oaky tannins, and nuttiness in balance.
Cherry jam, tea leaves, and pecan pie sweetness, followed by baked rye bread and stewed apple.
Earthy vanilla pod, toffee popcorn, more fresh bread with jam, creamy almond, and a hint of sharp berries.
Unctuous and spicy, with a good crack of black pepper and ginger alongside a drizzle of dark caramel.
