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 this blend of hand-selected, well-aged Bourbons & Ryes 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.

The list of awards is already so long we can barely fit them here but to name a few: 90 points by Wine Enthusiast, a Gold Medal at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Double Gold at the 2020 John Barleycorn Spirit Awards, Double Gold at the 2021 SIP Awards, and Gold 2020 Whiskey and Barrel Consumer Choice Awards.

Advent Calendar Day 15. While the burn on the nose is significant, I really enjoyed this dram. The taste was sweet and fruit-forward with a little bit of toffee. Warm finish with a minimal burn. I think for the price point this is a very solid whiskey with a nice blend of sweetness and spice.
