Sonic-finished metal Whiskey in the jar-ow.

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, 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 Blackened American Whiskey 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.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Very aromatic, smooth, and flavorful!

Very sweet with hints of berry, vanilla, and oak on the palate. Finish is all barrel, fading into hints of rye. Surprisingly good whiskey.

LtCol,
This is a hidden gem. Holy cow. Opened this and it is one of the smoothest whiskeys I have ever ttasted. The brandy adds a nice fruity tone to it but it’s best feature is it’s smoothness. I won’t touch this except for special occasions now. I can’t recommend it highly enough for any one to buy.
 
DAVE
DAVE,
I bought it because I'm a Metallica fan, and expected it to be mediocre like many celebrity liquors. I was pleasantly proven wrong. Sweet honey and tart fruit flavors matched with just enough of a bite make for a good sipper on the rocks or neat. The fruit tones from the black brandy casks really do make all the difference; indeed, "blackened is the end!"

Kent,
Warm honey moving into slightly overpowering spice, finishing with a little burnt clove. kinda not my flavor profile but it’s interesting how smoothly the flavors blend. I look forward to finishing this bottle though I don’t expect to purchase again. 😏

Very mild to my palate...nice balance of taste and smell. I'd buy this bottle again if it were less expensive. Above average.

The late Dave Pickerell was an amazing talent and does not disappoint with Blackened. No wonder Metallica made him the 5th Horseman. It is smooth and pleasant, similar to Blanton's, except less expensive.

Mark,
Holy cow, this is the smoothest whiskey I’ve ever tried. I purchased a bottle at my local store and will definitely keep this in my home bar. If you haven’t tried it, you should.

Daniel,
Smooth - maybe too smooth sometimes. A little too light and not very complex for the cost. Very drinkable, but there are better buys out there. Only slightly above average.
 
Don
Don,
Eh...average at best. Disappointed when I tried it
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Of all the whiskey/bourbon I've tried, Blackened has been the most pleasant. It's complex dynamic, smooth finish, and post indulgence flavour, left me analyzing the remaining tastes, and prompted me to try more. Though it may be used as a mixer, I find it most pleasurable, chilled, sipped, analyzed and appreciated. A definite favorite.
