Unraveling the Terminology
What Is American Whiskey Called?
American whiskey goes by many names, including bourbon, rye, and Tennessee whiskey. Each of these designations carries specific requirements and characteristics, shaping the taste and character of the final product. Learn the lingo to navigate the world of American whiskey with confidence.
Bourbon: Sweet and Charred
Bourbon, often called the "sweetheart" of American whiskey, must contain at least 51% corn. It's aged in new, charred oak barrels, resulting in sweet, caramel, and vanilla notes.
Rye: Spice and Boldness
Rye whiskey, with at least 51% rye grain, offers a spicier and bolder character, appealing to those seeking a more assertive whiskey experience.
Tennessee Whiskey: Smooth and Charcoal-Filtered
Tennessee whiskey, like Jack Daniel's, undergoes the Lincoln County Process, filtering through sugar maple charcoal before aging. This process imparts a smooth, mellow flavor with subtle charcoal undertones.
