This limited release from the Metallica-backed whiskey brand Blackened is a collaboration between the brand and Wes Henderson, previously of Angel's Envy (now retired). It's bottled at barrel proof and finished in white port wine barrels. Let's dive in!
Rich and funky on the nose, there's tons of bread pudding, sweet wine and honey, apples and pears, a touch of blackberry and opulent nougat. Rich and inviting, there's a lot going on!
Medium to rich viscosity on the palate, a touch of heat. Grape, berries, honey, caramel and some rock candy sweetness. Light, nutty, funkiness.
Everything comes together with this long finish. It's enjoyable, sweet and full of fruit, sweet oak and an interesting touch of nuttiness once again.
Overall, this is an interesting pour that seems to touch on multiple different flavor profiles. I like it — if jammy fruits and a nutty, sweet bourbon profile is your go, this should be right up your alley.
