Musical artists Metallica partnered with Whistlepig in 2018 to launch Blackened – a whiskey pelted with sound waves
as a finishing process. Blackened has now collaborated with Kentucky-based distiller, Willett to produce Blackened x Willet Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Madeira Casks as part of Blackened’s Masters of Whiskey Series.
Blackened x Willett touts a rye whiskey aged for six and a half years in white American oak casks before being finished in Madeira casks for up to 14 weeks and is said to contain notes of brown sugar, corn husk, cigar box, vanilla and dark walnut.
Blackened x Willett Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Madeira Casks is being made available in limited quantities for $140 per bottle.
