Product Description

BLACKENED® American Whiskey is a masterful collaboration of Master Distillers and the iconic rock group Metallica. This unlikely pairing is made possible by a shared creative passion and dedication to the craft that results in an unconventional whiskey of uncompromising quality. At the end of August, they announced their new Masters of Whiskey Series, combining the strength of BLACKENED’s Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich with renowned whiskey makers to re-imagine the craft of whiskey and create more complex expressions.

The first installment in the series is a collaboration between Rob and Drew Kulsveen, Master Distiller of Willett Distillery—BLACKENED x Willett Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey. A marriage of low rye and high rye whiskeys selected by the distillers from the Willett Family Estate Reserve with an average age of 6.5 years, this rye whiskey is finished in Madeira casks for up to 14 weeks.

Using the proprietary BLACK NOISE™ finishing process, each batch of whiskey is blasted with its very own Metallica playlist selected by Drew and Rob, and sequenced by Lars Ulrich. The low frequency sound waves force the whiskey to penetrate deeper into the barrel, extracting more caramel, honey, and vanilla flavors from the wood. The result is a magnificently balanced whiskey, robust in flavor and ideal for sipping neat, on the rocks, or in a classic cocktail.

The complexity of the whiskey balances perfectly, gracing the nose with hints of sweet rhubarb, brown sugar, corn husk, cigar box, and vanilla. The first sip liberates the palate with notes of buttery caramel, earthy mint, and fresh-cut hay, rolling into a superb finish with vanilla, cinnamon butter, and dark walnut.

— Nose: Sweet rhubarb, brown sugar, corn husk, cigar box and vanilla
— Palate: Buttery caramel, earthy mint and fresh cut hay
— Finish: Long and smooth finish with vanilla, cinnamon butter and dark walnut
