The Whiskey Wash: Whiskey Review: Blackened Whiskey Batch 106 Cask Strength
Blackened Whiskey, the band Metallica’s collaboration with late master distiller Dave Pickerell, late last year released a limited edition cask strength version of their flagship whiskey. Originally launched in 2018, Blackened is a blend of American bourbons and ryes. Blackened 106 Cask Strength is bottled at 110.7 proof rather than the typical 90 proof of previous releases. The blend is aged eight years in black brandy casks. During this time it is given the special treatment of the distillery’s proprietary BlackNoise sonic infusion.
