Blackened Whiskey is a collaboration between the rock band Metallica and master distiller Dave Pickerell. It is a blend of straight whiskeys sourced from undisclosed North American distilleries. The whiskey is finished in "black brandy barrels" for a few weeks. Additionally, the barrels are sonically enhanced in a process called "Black Noise". Low hertz sound waves--playing Metallica's music of course--causes the whiskey to further interact with the wood. The inaugural batch is labeled 081, to signify the year the band formed. Each batch of 5000 bottles will come with an accompanying playlist on Spotify and Apple Music.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is vibrant and inviting, with a hint of oranges and aniseed, as well as resin and oak shavings. Sweet too, while the rose petals and strawberries are presumably the effect of the black brandy barrels. The wood has done its work on the palate, as there is menthol and plenty of wood spices. But the sweetness makes an encore as well. A very solid whisky."
