After selling out the first batch of “Rock the Barrel” bourbon in less than 18 hours, Grammy-award-winning guitarist John Petrucci and internationally acclaimed craft bourbon whiskey distillers Iron Smoke bring you their newest batch in the “Rock the Barrel” lineup: “Rock the Barrel 2.”

“I am beyond excited for the launch of Rock The Barrel 2 and the opportunity to once again collaborate with owner Tommy Brunett, Skully, and the amazing whiskey artisans over at Iron Smoke Distillery,” exclaims John Petrucci.

“Rock the Barrel 2” is a 93-proof bourbon whiskey, honoring the year John and his wife Rena were married. This smoother, easier-to-drink edition features a fresh flavor profile, new artwork elements, and the unique combination of John’s personal taste with Iron Smoke’s commitment to excellence.

Petrucci is a founding member of the progressive metal band, Dream Theater, and is also a bourbon whiskeys aficionado. For this batch, Iron Smoke’s Master Distiller, Drew Westcott, focused on the original flavors John chose and nailed the lower proof for this savory bourbon blend.

Rock the Barrel 2 joins Iron Smoke’s collection of award-winning bourbon whiskeys. In 2018, Iron Smoke was rated a 95.5 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, and in 2019 was listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the “10 Best Bourbons Beyond Kentucky.”

Alongside Petrucci, Iron Smoke CEO and founder, Tommy Brunett, conceptualized this new batch to complement the legendary guitarist’s unique taste profile.

Each 750ml bottle, hand-signed by Petrucci, comes with a custom label and a tamper seal. Every order will receive a set of bamboo coasters emblazoned with the RTB 2 logo. In addition, every order will come with an invitation to join Tommy Brunett, CEO and Founder of Iron Smoke Distillery, and John Petrucci, in an exclusive virtual tasting session.
