Married and finished in black brandy casks and bottled at cask strength of 58.7% ABV, this is a marriage of the finest bourbons, ryes, and whiskeys that has been subdued to a special subwoofer that would transfer vibrations of Metallica tracks through the casks. They dubbed this proprietary process BLACK NOISE. The process is intense, but the flavor builds delicately with honey, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and mint. Expect a long, slighlty creamy, and exceptionally smooth finish with maple and honey notes.

About American Whiskey
There are two main representatives of the American whiskey family, bourbon, and rye, but some other spirits don't fall into those two strictly regulated categories.
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
