The Decade Series is a limited-edition collection of ultra-premium American whiskeys, each aged for 10 years or more. The first release in the series is a high-rye 10-year-old straight bourbon whiskey, available at a suggested price of $109.99 online.
The whiskey is bottled at 100 proof and features notes of maple, poached pear and banana on the nose, with a toffee and bitter chocolate palate. The finish is long and silky, with a hint of leather and earthiness.
While this is the first expression from the Decade Series collection to be released, the brand says work on the small-batch release actually began more than 10 years ago, when the founders of Heaven’s Door hand-selected barrels from small producers across the country.

“We’ve been patiently waiting on our barrels of aged liquid to mature to the optimal flavor profile for many years, and we are thrilled to release them for our fans to enjoy,” says Heaven’s Door, in a release. “Our first release is whiskey the world has not yet tasted. This Tennessee bourbon has a mash bill that’s non-traditional to all other whiskeys ever created from the state, with 22% rye and without charcoal mellowing. The distillation is much more reminiscent of what you would expect from a traditional Kentucky bourbon.”
The Heaven’s Door Decade Series Release #01 is available in a 750ml bottle and can be ordered online for home delivery through Reserve Bar. Like all the bottles in the Heaven’s Door portfolio, the Decade Series features Dylan’s ironwork sculptures represented on the label (Dylan, a noted “bootleg whiskey” fan, started the Heaven’s Door brand in 2015).
The new expression follows last year’s release of a Heaven’s Door Cask Strength Single Barrel 2021, and the Heaven’s Door Whiskey x Redbreast Irish Whiskey’s collaboration, which sold out within days of launching last May but is now back in stock.
