BLACKENED Whiskey announces release of cask strength expression

The cask strength whiskey is a blend of straight bourbon and ryes, finished and sonically enhanced in brandy casks and bottled at cask strength

BLACKENED Whiskey has announced the release of its Cask Strength bottling, beginning with Volume 01 as a nationwide rollout, including Canada.

The BLACKENED Whiskey Cask Strength features a blend of North American bourbons and ryes, which is the same format as the original expression. The whiskeys are then married and finished in brandy casks, bottled at cask strength and non-chill filtered.

After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback on previous limited Cask Strength releases, BLACKENED Whiskey is answering consumer demand with this expression and rolling it out across the US and multiple provinces in Canada.

The makers of BLACKENED Whiskey sonically-enhance their whiskeys to extract more flavor from the finishing casks, using a patent-pending scientific process co-developed by the sound engineers at Meyer Sound, a global leader in sound technology. Dubbed Black Noise, this sonic-enhancement process produces low hertz sound waves causing the whiskey to reverberate at a fast rate, interacting with the oak staves of the finishing barrel, measurably releasing wood compounds and flavors. 

“I absolutely love cask strength whiskey,” said BLACKENED Whiskey master distiller & blender, Rob Dietrich. “You are drinking whiskey in its purest form; unfiltered, uncut and born straight from the barrel with one unapologetic purpose – to be savored.”

“When creating BLACKENED, we didn’t want to create just another whiskey. Our goal was to create something unique and refined that would appeal to even the top notch whiskey experts,” said Metallica bassist, Robert Trujillo. “We are so proud of Rob’s latest accolades with Rye The Lightning receiving the #14 spot on Whisky Advocate’s Top Whiskies of 2022. We know fans are going to be excited for the release of BLACKENED Whiskey Cask Strength, starting with the newly released Volume 01.”

BLACKENED Whiskey Cask Strength is on shelves now with an SRP of $69.99. To find local retailers or gather information, visit BLACKENED Whiskey’s website and follow on social at @BlackenedAmericanWhiskey. To hear the playlist, visit
