Product Vendor: Blackened American Whiskey

Commercial Description:

Introducing BLACKENED Kentucky Straight Rye Double Cask Finished Whiskey – aptly dubbed RYE THE LIGHTNING™.  Inspired by Metallica’s 6x platinum sophomore album Ride the Lightning, this welcoming limited-edition rye whiskey is double cask finished using Madeira and Rum Casks.  Our proprietary BLACK NOISE™ sonic enhancement process utilized a playlist consisting solely of a live recording of the Ride the Lightning portion of Metallica’s June 2012 Orion Music + More festival setlist — the only time the band has ever played the album live in its entirety. RYE THE LIGHTNING is crafted from Kentucky straight rye whiskeys aged between 5-8 years and hand-selected by BLACKENED Master Distiller & Blender, Rob Dietrich. The whiskeys are then vatted and transferred for finishing in Madeira wine and Caribbean rum casks for 2-14 weeks each. The double cask finishing results in notes of dried fig, hay, pinewood, pear, and rum cake on the nose, and on the palate, clover honey, mint, corn husk, sugar cane, walnut, and cinnamon. Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich is well known for exploring bold finishes and balancing flavors – and this unique and approachable rye expression continues his journey of innovation. Bottled at 90 proof, RYE THE LIGHTNING™ makes for the perfect sipper and exciting addition to the growing craft whiskey offerings of BLACKENED.

TASTING NOTES

Nose: Dried Fig, Hay, Pine Wood, Pear, and Rum Cake.
Palate: Clover Honey, Mint, Corn Husk, Sugar Cane, Walnut, and Cinnamon.

Great Release

Have been a fan of Blackened for a long time now. When I heard that they were finally releasing a Rye I had to get it. This whiskey did not disappoint. Very smooth and sweet with just a little of that rye burn. This has to come from the rum barrel finishing. Wish it was available now in my state, Kentucky!! Glad I did the preorder. Get this it will not disappoint. Says Born In Bardstown on the bottle. Should have been released first here in Ky too. Instead of just California. Until then, I’ll have to make this bottle last. Cheers!!!
