Masters Of Whiskey Series
BLACKENED Whiskey’s Master Distiller & Blender, Rob Dietrich, teamed up with Rabbit Hole Distillery’s Founder & Hall of Fame whiskey maker, Kaveh Zamanian, to create BLACKENED x Rabbit Hole, the 2023 release of the Masters of Whiskey Series. This limited-edition expression is crafted from a 13-year old straight Tennessee bourbon whiskey, which is 64% corn/36% rye, and Rabbit Hole Heigold High Rye Double Malt Kentucky Straight bourbon, 70% corn/25% malted rye/5% malted barley. The bourbon whiskey blend is then finished in Calvados apple brandy casks, bottled at cask strength, and non-chill filtered.
Nose: Apple butter, rhubarb, honey-suckle, graham cracker, macadamia nut
Palate: Ripe pear, cinnamon stick, smoky campfire, field clover, honey, black walnut
ABV – 106.59 (Alc/Vol 53.3%)
Created By Masters Of Their Craft
This exceptional partnership stems from both distillers’ uncompromising passion, reputation for forging their own paths in American whiskey, and their ability to innovate. Rabbit Hole’s unique mash bills and sourcing malt from Europe, coupled with Blackened Whiskey’s sonic-enhancement process are proof that innovation can come in unexpected ways in whiskey making.
“We were really looking for something that balanced and layered the flavor profiles together, then added a dash of flavor through the Calvados cask finishing. I’m ecstatic at what we came up with!” -Rob Dietrich, Master Distiller and Blender for BLACKENED Whiskey.
“It seems like it was just an organic process, more art than science when we came together. It’s always great to be able to work with whiskey makers who are doing new things, such as BLACKENED, as it helps us learn more and improve our game.”- Kaveh Zamanian, Rabbit Hole Distillery’s Founder & Hall of Fame Whiskey Maker.
