  • Excerpt: The resulting product could have gone any number of directions, and either by chance or by choice the final result maintains a bourbon-focused flavor profile. It’s an interesting experiment, and one I hope to see more of going forward.

  • Excerpt: The taste is robust and well-rounded with a nice spiciness and notes of apple pie, dark chocolate, honey, black cherries and a lingering nuttiness in the background. The finish is long and well-balanced. Excellent!

  • Excerpt: Overall, the Master Blenders' Edition from Heaven's Door and Redbreast is a fun look at the cross over between American Whiskey and Irish Whiskey. Redbreasts casks definitely impart a lot of great tropical fruit, peaches and cream, and honey/toffee character that is a great yin to Heaven's Door's oaky, nutty, tobacco forward profile.

  • Intro:

    Heaven's Door is a familiar whiskey to many drinkers, but their newest bottling incorporates something that should certainly look new to many bourbon fans. Master Blenders' Edition incorporates finishing in Redbreast Irish Whiskey casks - one of our favorite Irish producers, known for their love of sherry casks. Heaven's Door Master Blenders' Edition carries a 10 year age statement.

  • Nose:

    Nutty, sweet, those Redbreast casks shine. Lots of honey and fruit - notably peach and pear.

  • Taste:

    The palate has some moderate viscosity, no sign of ethanol. Nutty and rich, tons of toffee, tobacco, sweet cream, fig, peaches and cream and apricot jam.

  • Finish:

    Long finish - tons going on. Tobacco, toffee, long peaches and cream finish.

  • Overall:

    Overall, the Master Blenders' Edition from Heaven's Door and Redbreast is a fun look at the cross over between American Whiskey and Irish Whiskey. Redbreasts casks definitely impart a lot of great tropical fruit, peaches and cream, and honey/toffee character that is a great yin to Heaven's Door's oaky, nutty, tobacco forward profile.
