Bottle of BLACKENED American Whiskey Cask Strength Batch 112


The BLACKENED® Master Blender Exclusive Batch 112 is Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich’s signature BLACKENED release! A super-premium blend of Rob’s carefully selected straight bourbons and ryes, finished in black brandy casks. This batch features Rob’s own curated Metallica playlist used in the proprietary BLACK NOISE™ sonic-enhancement process. Oh…and it’s cask strength!

Burnt caramel, oak & honey on the nose, with honey, cinnamon, allspice, dark fruit, clove and mint on the palate. The finish is long and smooth, slightly creamy with hints of butterscotch taffy, maple and honey.

Blackened Cask Strength Whiskey Reviews

"My hat’s off to Metallica, the late Dave Pickerell, & BLACKENED’s current Master Distiller & Blender Rob Deitrich, for coming up with a celebrity whiskey that actually delivers. This is another pour that makes me question my aversion to cask finished whiskeys."
"A cask strength version of Blackened is everything you’d expect it to be if you’re familiar with the 90 proof version. Because the black brandy casks used to finish the base whiskey already provide a wealth of dark fruit flavors, increasing the proof allows these great flavors to shine even more. The higher proof doesn’t reinvent the Blackened profile, but finds a nice complementary point to the standard release."
"For those who enjoy both bourbons and ryes Blackened 106 is the best of both worlds."
