What makes an American Whiskey?
North American whiskeys are all-grain spirits produced from a mash bill that usually mixes together corn, rye, wheat, barley and other grains in different proportions, and then generally aged for years in wooden barrels. The barrels may be new or used, and charred or uncharred on the inside, depending on the type of whiskey being made.
The flavors of your whiskey tell the story
Flavor descriptors such as toffee, pralines, vanilla, and dried fruit to describe the initial rush of flavors in a good, well-aged Bourbon. The charred oak barrels give Bourbon a distinctive spicy oak firmness that is unique to American whiskeys.
The taste descriptors for Tennessee whiskey tend to parallel those of its Kentucky cousin. The distinction and the difference comes on the finish which is long, clean, and very, very smooth—a result of the final sugar maple charcoal filtration. Legally, Tennessee whiskeys could be sold as Bourbon; but the two Volunteer State distillers are proud enough of their “sipping whisky” to insist that the difference be known to all.
Lastly, the best Rye whiskey makes its presence known with a spicy, grainy, hard-edged firmness that is distinctive and unique. Usually very dry, with notes of walnut, toasted grain, and black pepper, straight rye has a bold assertive character that has earned it a small but dedicated following among discerning whiskey fans.
