A Blend of Straight Rye Whiskeys. Double Cask Finished in Madeira & Rum Casks

The 2024 Edition of BLACKENED Whiskey’s Rye The Lightning is a blend of straight rye whiskeys (95% rye) and double cask finished in Madeira and rum casks. Bottled at 92 proof and non-chill filtered.

This limited-edition expression follows the highly acclaimed 2022 edition of Rye the Lightning, which received Gold from the John Barleycorn Awards, Best Finished Whiskey from Breaking Bourbon, a 93 rating from Whisky Advocate, and was awarded the #14 spot on Whisky Advocate’s 2022 Top 20 Most Exciting Whiskies of the World. Given the overwhelmingly positive response, BLACKENED Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich sought to bottle lightning again with this latest 2024 iteration.
