 is a marriage of the finest bourbons, ryes & whiskeys, hand selected by whiskey legend Dave Pickerel. Each of the whiskeys offer unique flavor that play a key role in the final spirit. Predominately bourbon, the sweetness of Blackened Whiskey pairs perfectly with the savory spice offered by the high rye composition.

Dave Pickerel was renown for his whiskey finishes—an aspect he calls “flavoring for adults”. By resting the whiskey in the barrel of another spirit during the maturation phase, the whiskey picks up some of the unique, residual flavors left behind in the barrel.

For Blackened American Whiskey, Dave chose to finish the whiskey in black brandy casks. The result is an added apricot note that plays perfectly alongside the honey and caramel tones of the pre-finished spirit.

After the whiskeys have been combined in the black brandy casks for finishing, they’re jolted back to life by the unmistakable, earth-shattering music of Metallica. Using our proprietary sonic-enhancement system BLACK NOISE™, the whiskey is pummeled by sound, causing it to seep deeper into the barrel, where it picks up additional wood flavor characteristics. The whiskey is then bottled at 45% ABV.

The process the whiskey undergoes is intense; the flavor is anything but.
