Metallica Blackened Whiskey 72 Seasons Limited Edition

Metallica have announced a brand new batch of their signature Blackened Whiskey. The new bottles will commemorate the release of their acclaimed new album 72 Seasons by blasting the record during the sonic-enhancement process of their latest batch.

“It’s kind of like we’re bottling key Metallica memories with these limited-release batches.” says Rob Dietrich, Blackened’s Master Distiller and Blender. “We did it with S&M2 and The Black Album, and now we’re doing it with 72 Seasons. It’s awesome to share this experience with the band and the fans.”

The 72 Seasons batch will be available in a limited edition bottle, highlighting elements inspired by the album, including a striking yellow capsule with the signature Metallica ‘M’ and the 72 Seasons logo prominently displayed on the front.

Blackened® is an award-winning whiskey that is a blend of the finest straight bourbon & rye whiskeys and uniquely finished and sonically- enhanced in brandy casks, using the BLACK NOISE™ process to extract more flavor from the wood. 

This week, Metallica wrapped up the first leg of their massive 72 Seasons World Tour in Denmark. The trek continues in North American on August 4 and August 6 with two performances at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. In October, Metallica are slated to headline the all-new Power Trip Festival in California alongside Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Tool, and Guns N’ Roses.

Metallica’s eleventh studio album 72 Seasons arrived on April 14 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track 72 Seasons is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. The album is available in on 2LP 140-gram black vinyl and limited edition variants, CD, limited edition cassette, and digital download.
