A California limited edition of Blackened’s signature “Black Noise-aged” Whiskey finished in Black Brandy casks.

A few years ago, legendary the late master distiller Dave Pickering cut a deal to partner with the Hard Rock band Metallica. The new Spirit would be a product of Sweet Amber Distilling Co. based in Mineville, New York. The master’s reins have been picked up by master distiller and blender Rob Dietrich — formerly of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. Currently, the team has a single product line called Blackened Whiskey.

Blackened has been doing a series of geo-targeted limited editions. Blackened "The Golden State" Cask Strength Limited Edition pay tribute to California. Like the rest of the line, it is a blend of Bourbons and Ryes abed a minimum of eight years. After the Spirits are married, the combined Whiskey is finished in Black Brandy casks while being exposed to their proprietary Black Noise agitation that encourages more of the Spirit to flow in and out of the wood, enhancing the flavor. The final Spirit is bottled at full cask strength of 58.7% ABV.

It’s “supposed” to be only available in California. But like Metalica, we’re not good at following rules… especially when it comes to Whiskey.

Smartass Corner:
Black Noise is a trademarked technique to keep barrels of Spirit in constant agitation using ultra low-frequency subwoofers. In this case, the sound comes from a custom Metallica playlist chosen for each release by members of the band.

Flavor Spiral TM
  • oak oak
  • honey honey
  • caramel caramel
  • berries berries
  • mint mint
  • cinnamon cinnamon
  • clove clove
  • warm warm

Appearance / Color
Antique Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is filled with notes of charred oak, wild honey, burnt caramel, and a hint of distant fruit.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Sipped neat, the palate is firm and very warm with notes of dark berries, more honey, mint, and a raft of spices from cinnamon and allspice to clove and anise.

Finish
The finish is long and warm, but softens over time into a butterscotch note.
