Find Your Perfect Pairing

Everyone wants to find their perfect match, and the same goes for your bottle of BLACKENED. Take a look at our picks for the best pairings for your dram this February.

A Flavorful Feast

What’s a good meal without a whiskey to wash it down? And what’s a good whiskey without a meal to help uncover the flavors within? With BLACKENED’s wide-ranging notes of honey, cinnamon, allspice, dark fruit, clove, and mint, the food pairing opportunities are endless. To heighten the flavors of cinnamon and clove, we recommend pairing with any kind of dry rubbed meat, like a steak or chicken wings. If dry rubbed meat isn’t your thing, don’t fear; try sampling a chocolate or caramel dessert to complement BLACKENED’s sweet notes.

The Perfect Draw

Sit back and spark up. If you’re looking for the perfect stick to match your BLACKENED pour, look no further than BLACKENED Cigars “M81” by Drew Estate. A passion project between Jonathan Drew, Founder and President of Drew Estate, and our very own James Hetfield and Rob Dietrich, M81 utilizes the Maduro leaf for a smoke you won’t soon forget. With their darker wrappers and rich taste, Maduro cigars perfectly match that boldness of BLACKENED.

Heavy Sounds and Smooth Sips

You and your friends aren’t the only ones who crank the bass for a good time. We use the BLACK NOISE™ Sonic-Enhancement Process where low-hertz sound waves of Metallica’s hits are played to force the whiskey deeper into the oak staves of the barrel, helping to unlock its full flavor potential. Each batch of BLACKENED has a unique playlist that is used to sonically enhance the whiskey during finishing. So next time you’re enjoying a glass of BLACKENED, turn up the volume to become one with the whiskey.

From Roast to Toast

Coffee and whiskey are an unmistaken match. The robust and complex notes of BLACKENED perfectly complement the rich and bold character of coffee. And while the first drink that may come to mind when you think of the two is the Irish Coffee, there are countless ways to enjoy these staples, like an Espresso Martini or Cold Fashioned. Both drinks intertwine the rich and intense coffee notes with our BLACKENED whiskey creating a perfectly balanced marriage of flavors.

Whatever your relationship status, whiskey and these pairings will never disappoint and have no strings attached.
