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.
