A Quick Review of Heaven's Door Straight Bourbon Whiskey

74 General Review of Heaven's Door Straight Bourbon

The notes on the nose of Heaven's Door Straight Bourbon Whiskey come and go. When I opened the bottle the nose was very good with butterscotch, apple, rye spice, mint, and cinnamon notes. On the second tasting a week later, I did not get the level of complexity. 

Unfortunately, the palate leaves a lot to be desired. It is not smooth at all as one would expect for a 92 proof whiskey. It does get a little creamier after you open the bottle and after you let it sit for a week or so. Still, it's not enough to make much of a difference in the tasting experience. There’s a mintiness on the palate and ethanol.

The finish is extremely short.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
