Another one of the three initial Heaven’s Door whiskies produced in a collaboration between Bob Dylan and the Spirits Investment Partnership’s team of whisky makers, Double Barrel blends three different styles of whiskies from Tennessee and finishes them for a year in new toasted oak barrels.
The nose has a good oakiness with notes of pipe tobacco, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, cocoa, and a hint of leather. The taste is well-rounded and mouth-filling with caramel, fudge, and honey notes at first, followed by spicy touches of clove, black pepper and nutmeg. A hint of pipe tobacco comes out leading into the finish, which is long and smooth with that pipe tobacco sweetness, caramel, cocoa, and lingering spices. (May, 2018)
