Blackened X Rabbit Hole Master of Whiskey Series Bourbon Whiskey
53.7% ABV, 750 ml, Finished in Calvados Casks
"The BLACKENED x Rabbit Hole is the 2023 release in BLACKENED Whiskey’s Masters of Whiskey Series, which was created in partnership with Master Distiller & Blender, Rob Dietrich, and Rabbit Hole Distillery’s Founder & Hall of Fame Whiskey Maker, Kaveh Zamanian. 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 blend is then cask-finished in Calvados casks, bottled at cask strength, and non-chill filtered.
Blackened Whiskey and Rabbit Hole Distillery are both known for forging their own paths in American Whiskey. 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. Rob and Kaveh believe that creation is personal and that quality and artisanship drive everything they do.They constantly challenge the way they approach whiskey making and are always striving to surpass current standards. It’s these shared values and the appreciation for art in all its forms that came together in this collaboration that resulted in a complex, bold flavor profile.
