Description

This limited-edition bourbon from Heaven’s Door takes a 15-year-old straight bourbon whiskey on a unique flavor journey. The magic happens through the finishing process, where the whiskey spends additional time resting in Jamaican pot still rum casks. This imbues the bourbon with a nuanced complexity beyond the typical bourbon character.

Imagine the familiar aromas of cornbread and vanilla from the bourbon base intermingling with the warm, exotic notes of Jamaican rum. The nose might also reveal hints of cocoa nibs, a touch of tobacco leaf, and a surprising sweetness reminiscent of maple syrup.

On the palate, the experience gets even more intriguing. The initial burst of familiar bourbon flavors – think caramel and baking spices – takes a delightful turn with hints of dried apricot and sandalwood. A nutty richness emerges, further complemented by the subtle presence of rum. The finish brings everything together beautifully, with toasted caramel notes mingling with warming holiday spices and the smooth presence of toasted oak. But here’s the kicker – lingering hints of rum from the cask peek through, creating a truly unique and unforgettable aftertaste.

This isn’t your everyday bourbon. The Bootleg Series, 2020 Edition is a conversation starter, a special bottle to be savored and shared with fellow whiskey enthusiasts who appreciate a distinctive flavor profile. The collectible packaging featuring Bob Dylan’s art adds another layer to the experience, making it a treasured addition to any whiskey collection.
