One of the most interesting aspects of Metallica's BLACKENED whiskey, is the proprietary infusion system, where the eight-year-old aged bourbons and ryes are blasted with Metallica music to extract some more flavors. The newest, limited batch is now available with a fun twist.

Today, Sweet Amber Distilling Co. announces the launch of BLACKENED American Whiskey’s Batch 106 expression, which has been sonically-enhanced to a Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M2 playlist. The blend is finished in black brandy casks while being pummeled with the low hertz frequencies of Metallica’s music. The proprietary sonic-enhancement process called BLACK NOISE™ uses the movement from the sound waves to extract more flavors from the wood.

The new BLACKENED batch is sold in a limited edition box featuring a unique, original design by artist Squindo that is a rendition of the sonic-enhancement process, making it the perfect gift or collector’s item.

Here's the playlist used for the infusion:

“I was actually at the arena for both nights of the S&M2 concert,” said Rob Dietrich, Master Distiller/Blender for BLACKENED. “The insane energy that exuded from both the fans and performers is unforgettable. It’s amazing to bring that spirit and passion to BLACKENED.”
