The definition of whiskey is less restrictive, it can be distilled from a variety of grains without restrictions on storage and comes from anywhere in the world whiskey is made.What Kind Of Bourbons Are There?
Traditional Bourbon is usually made from 60-80% distilled corn-mash with only small amounts of other grains added for fermentation and flavor.
Wheated Bourbon is made from 51% or more distilled corn-mash, with the second greatest grain being wheat. Wheated bourbon has a creaminess to its mouth-feel, with a prickly sweet flavor that’s a little lighter than the traditional recipe.
Rye Bourbon is made from 51% or more distilled corn-mash and around 20% distilled rye. This gives the bourbon a spicy kick that complements the sweetness of the corn, without the full-on zing of a rye whiskey, which is made from 51% or more rye.What Does Bourbon Taste Like?
