A sonic-finished Whiskey from legendary superstars.

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? Dave Pickerell, the 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.

Blackened "The Empire State" Cask Strength Limited Edition is their superstar release. This is an exceptionally well-balanced batch that starts off savory and evolves into sweet corn, rye, and apricot notes on the finish. Rob Dietrich curated a unique playlist to bring this 115.57 proof Whiskey to life. You can find the playlist on the website and listen while you sip – get your other senses working, too.
