Yes, this still is the original Batch 81 distilled by the late, great Dave Pickerell!
"This is the essential gift for any Metallica fan or whiskey aficionado to add to their collection. "Re-Mastered" by Pickerell, BLACKENED Whiskey, is a collaboration of bourbons, ryes, and whiskeys from all across North America, carefully selected by Dave himself. Once married, they make their way into black brandy casks for finishing. Inside those black brandy casks, the liquid is bathed in low hertz sound waves so intense that it actually intensifies the molecular interaction and ultimately the finish resulting in
the most balanced delicious whiskey that's perfect for cocktails or on the rocks."
It's more than a whiskey. BLACKENED is a testament to the creative process, to the hard work and determination required to make something from nothing. It's a monument to the ones who charge into the fray and come out the otherside stronger, together. Fueled by decades of creative passion, BLACKENED is a distillation of the incomparable bond between the band and their community of fans.
