Heaven's Door Spirits released Bootleg Series Volume V release: an 18-year-old straight bourbon whiskey finished in Spanish vermouth rouge casks, exemplifying the brand's dedication to offering unique and innovative expressions.
"Vermouth has long been a part of whiskey cocktail culture, and we wanted to capture that essence in this mature Bootleg Series expression. We chose Spanish Vermouth casks to finish the 18-year-old bourbon to provide depth of flavor and complexity that perfectly complements the whiskey's character," said Alex Moore, Heaven's Door master blender.
A tribute to Bob Dylan's long-running Bootleg Series of rare and unreleased tracks that provide a window into the mind of a great artist, the series from Heaven's Door offers rare and unreleased expressions with special blends and barrel finishes that showcase the brand's creative approach to whiskey making. Each bottle is adorned with one of Dylan's original paintings on a hand-crafted ceramic bottle and is presented in a bespoke leather journal.
Bootleg Vol. V showcases Dylan's painting titled "No Vacancies" (2019) from The Beaten Path collection. The road, a recurrent and central theme in Dylan's creative journey, takes center stage in this painting, symbolizing the endless possibilities and adventures that have fueled American art, literature, and music for generations. His ability to capture the soul of America through various mediums adds an additional layer of depth and resonance to Bootleg Vol. V, making it a collector's item that seamlessly marries the worlds of art and craft whiskey.
