The Heaven’s Door range of whiskey have been created by Bob Dylan and Marc Bushala (founder of Angel’s Envy Bourbon), made in a church in Tennessee.
Breaking with tradition, this Straight Rye Whiskey is finished in toasted cigar barrels, air-dried in the low-lying mountain region of Vosges, France. This proprietary finishing results in a smoother, more approachable rye with notes of orange peel, coriander and spice.
Nose: Classic dark and chew rye notes – mint, baking spices, anise, freshly ground pepper – form around a creamy core of banoffee pie and vanilla ice cream. A warming, woody element builds underneath with touches of citrus, leather and molasses. A big whiff of pricey dark chocolate wafts through with time.
Palate: The flavours intensify on the palate. There’s a nutty toffee foundation with more chocolate and spice, followed by apple pie, orange peel, spearmint, salted butter and nougat.
Finish: The spice completely disappears but the mint lingers in a calm, delicate and slightly succulent finish.
