I like that his gates are on the labels...the bottle is beautiful. This product fits him well, I guess he's having fun... and he is going to make lots of money.
Very interesting article, it must me terribly exciting to work with Dylan. I simply love this part :

“Sometimes you just get a long look,” Mr. Bushala said with a laugh, “and you’re not sure if that’s disgust or approval.”

I just hope they'll be available in Canada. Let's not fall in the ''he's a sell-out'' trap this time ok.

At least, when he does these commercial ventures, they're always aimed at the high-end market, so he's fleecing those with money to burn rather than the average Joe who likes their whiskey cheap and nasty. In fact, I'm quite happy that people who would think nothing at splashing out $300 on a bottle are redistributing their wealth to Dylan, fair play to him.

I'd like to see Bob combine all his interests and write a song about painting a picture of a sculpture of a bottle of whiskey.

I'm sure, no matter how good the whiskey is, that if you scoffed that whole bottle in one go, you'd waken up thinking you were at the Gates of Hell!

No matter what market he's targetting, he's forcing nobody to buy it. If an 'average Joe' buys anything that he can't afford, that's Joe's own fault, not the seller, who ever he is.

Bootleg whisky in his hand...

I love Bob's image as of Shadows. This sounds delightful.

I tend to only have whiskey at Christmas, probably a good thing as not likely to be cheap to buy. I want some though, that bottle looks great. Hope its tastes good.

I guess two fingers of Dylan's whiskey + two fingers + two fingers + another two fingers + more fingers + another bottle + hey! one for the road! + hey, let's make the penultimate... and you can finish knocking at anyone's door believing is your front door. There is no difference between Dylan's whiskey and other whiskeys. :lol:

I'm all for the ironwork designs on the bottles...looks great.

Limited edition ceramic ones with paintings on...

Wonder if they'll be a man on a bridge one ? :shock:

Found something very interesting on the Heaven’s Door website. Draft lyrics sheets including Highway 61 Revisited, Blind Willie McTell, Love Sick and others. Don’t know if these were available elsewhere before? All in hi-res though, handwritten, typewritten or a bit of both. Fascinating.

Bob’s spelling on Ballad of a Thin Man is atrocious, I suspect he had been at more than just the whiskey when he wrote it. :lol:

Also notice he wrote God as “g-d” on Blind Willie McTell, I will let the more Christian among you take from that what you will.

"Mr. Dylan has also made a novel licensing deal for his full song catalog to be available for use in a television drama now under development."

Booze. Okay. Whatever. But this is something else entirely...!

Did anyone else feel disappointed that the big business marketing dude convinced Bob to change the name from Bootleg Whiskey to Heaven's Door? I could just picture this guy in the $300 VIP seats yelling "play Watchtower, Bob!"

I am reminded of Gary Oldman in Coppola's Dracula.

"I do not drink....wine."
