Heaven’s Door Spirits, an American whiskey brand of singer and songwriter Bob Dylan, has released the first expression of its Bootleg Series.

Dubbed as Volume 1 of the Bootleg Series, the expression is a rare 26-year old whiskey finished in Japanese Mizunara Oak barrels.

Heaven’s Door master blender Ryan Perry said: “The unusually long maturity of the whisky is balanced with the acquired notes of coconut, coriander and a native incense of Dīngxiāng (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.”

With 55.7% alcohol by volume (ABV), Volume 1 of the Bootleg Series features low rye content whiskey’s mash bill.

Offered in hand-made ceramic bottles, the 2019 Edition of The Bootleg Series will feature Bob Dylan’s best-known paintings, Train Tracks housed in an individually numbered collectable leather journal.

The company has released 3,000 bottles, which are available for purchase for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $499.99 per 750ml bottle.

From December, the whiskey expression will be available for purchase at select retailers across the US. It can also be purchased online.

The expression will join Heaven’s Door craft whiskey portfolio, which includes Tennessee Straight Bourbon, Double Barrel Whiskey and Straight Rye Whiskey finished in cigar barrels from Vosges, France.
