BLACKENED™ American Whiskey by METALLICA
BLACKENED™ American Whiskey is a really cool whiskey release I think a lot of you are going to love. This is a collaboration between iconic metal band METALLICA and some of the finest master distillers and whiskey blenders around, Dave Pickerell and Rob Dietrich. The name ‘BLACKENED’ pays tribute to every aspect of this release from METALLICA’s rock and roll to the charred barrels and black brandy casks AND their BLACK NOISE technology which is a proprietary sonic-enhancement process.
This release is a blend of bourbon and rye with an average age of 8+ years. The BLACK NOISE technology is probably the most unique element of this release. They’ve created a one-of-a-kind subwoofer to blast METALLICA’s music (low hertz sound waves) at the whiskey inside of the barrel which might sound odd but in practice, it causes increased interaction with the wood barrel itself and this brings out more wood-flavor characteristics in the whiskey than ever before. It has spice from the rye and notes of dark fruit. You can purchase a bottle of this for $49 on Drizly buy following that ‘shop now’ button below!
Accessories For Kicking Back And Relaxing
I’ve been fortunate enough to sample the past two Wild Turkey Master’s Keep releases and I recently uncorked the all-new Wild Turkey Bottled In Bond release. Only 14,400 bottles of this Master’s Keep 17-year-old Bottled in Bond are available. The ‘Bottled in Bond’ or BIB designation isn’t too dissimilar from Champagne or Port where it has very specific requirements. This BIB designation means the entire bottle comes from a single distillation season, so all of this whiskey went into the barrel within six months (there are two seasons per year). The initial BIB liquid must be a minimum of 4-years-old.
This Master’s Keep release was aged for 17 peaceful years at Wild Turkey’s Camp Nelson rickhouses by master distiller Eddie Russell and the finished product is now available in these very limited quantities throughout the nation. You can click here to see if it’s available in your area via Drizly.

The new black colorway from 8000 Kicks was launched this week and the beige colorway is finally (!!!) back in stock which means you gentlemen are about to meet your new favorite eco-friendly sneakers.

Every aspect of The Carter pocket knife has been carefully considered and crafted to deliver you a perfect pocket knife for daily use, one that will last you a lifetime if you treat it well, and one that is lightweight and discreet enough to easily carry in your pocket without taking up too much space. This Natural Micarta + Black colorway is a favorite of everyday carry enthusiasts all over I’m 100% on board with it.

This means you can use this knife regularly, in any conditions, and it won’t fall apart on you like some other cheaper knives out there.

Here we’ve got the Meater+ Wireless Meat Thermometer which is a grilling tool I’ve used since the day it was released, and one I’ve featured here on BroBible in the past because I stand by how incredible the Meater+ is. Seriously, I rarely run my smoker without using the Meater+ because it helps me achieve a perfect temperature every time. the built-in Bluetooth repeater in the charger extends the range of the Meater+ to a whopping 165-feet. There are no wires whatsoever and you an monitor everything on the Meater smartphone app to make sure you never overcook your meat.

Quick-Drying Onsen Towels Are 25% Off
I’ve used these before in an Airbnb and found them to be excellent but completely forgot about them until I saw this 25% off sale. They come in five different neutral colors (Cinder Grey, Denim, Oatmeal, Twilight Blue, and White). And the brilliant waffle weave design of these Onsen towels is what sets them apart from the competition.
The waffle weave design enables these Onsen Towels to dry extremely fast which means bacteria doesn’t have nearly as much time to grow as it does on most towels. In practice, this means you don’t have to wash them as frequently as other towels because they stay fresher longer.
