Anthrax Releases Celebratory 40th Anniversary Bourbon
Anthrax is celebrating four decades of their metal legacy with a specialty, limited batch bourbon whiskey, “Anthrax XL”, by Hillrock Estate Distillery.
The 155 proof “Anthrax XL” has only been poured into 400 hand-numbered bottles. The liqour is described by the band as a “smooth Solera-aged, single-barrel bourbon finished for 40 days in a 20-year-old Oloroso Sherry cask, providing the spirits with balanced flavors and layers of complexity.”
“On the nose there is an explosion of caramel, toffee and butterscotch with hints of dried cherries and fresh herbs. The pallet has a rich texture of bright red fruits, baking spices and toasted almonds.”
Each bottle retails for $155–save for the 40 very limited edition bottles priced at $350, packed in black drawstring gift bags with the ‘Anthrax XL’ logo inside a customized box encased in a SilverFoil cardstock wrap. Those extra special babies also come with a Golden Ticket, getting you and one guest into a headlining Anthrax show nearby as well as access to an in-person meet and greet on a 2022 U.S. tour.
This 2022 tour has yet to be officially announced aside from this brief mention but it certainly has fans excited for the prospect.
