A tasty way to help the community of Kentucky.

You know how plants are supposed to flourish more if you play them Mozart? Now imagine aging your Whiskey with music. What would you play? Metallica, of course. And that is what's really happening now: the original gangsters of metal just gave us their brand new Whiskey called Blackened American Whiskey. So metal, right? Before Master Distiller Rob Dietrich took over, the late Dave Pickerell, former Master Distiller at Maker's Mark, made a hardcore blend of American Bourbon, Rye, and Whiskey, tucked away next to subwoofers that blast low-frequency sound waves to enhance the molecules. And every new batch of five thousand bottles comes with a different Metallica playlist.

We know what you're thinking: just another rock star gimmick. Well, a 2017 study on Brandy and sound-aging actually says this thing works and Metallica's Whiskey in a jar-ow is really good. And while this blend of hand-selected, well-aged Bourbons & Ryes is finished with Hetfield's madness, it's matured in black Brandy casks, which brings apricot notes with honey and caramel flavors to this Bourbon-lead mosh-pit.

Made as a collab between Master Distiller Rob Dietrich and Angel’s Envy co-founder Wes Henderson, Blackened x Wes Henderson Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was released to give back to the Kentucky community. A complex 6YO Kentucky Straight Bourbon that was finished in White Port Wine casks, Rob and Wes felt they needed to help their region after the 2021 devastating tornadoes. So, they created this cask-strength and non-chill filtered beauty to donate money and support the rebuild efforts in Western Kentucky. Blackened will donate $25,000 to the Team Rubicon organization, while Metallica and All Within My Hands will match this donation, making the overall total donation $50,000.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
