Ditto, brown liquor tends to make me heave, just the smell of Jack Daniels makes me sick....comes from some previous tendencies to over indulge. Big Grin

Bourbon is a type of whiskey.

For a whiskey to qualify as bourbon, the law -- by international agreement -- stipulates that it must be made in the USA. It must be made from at least 51% and no more than 79% corn, and aged for at least two years. (Most bourbon is aged for four years or more.) The barrels for aging can be made of any kind of new oak, charred on the inside. Nowadays all distillers use American White Oak, because it is porous enough to help the bourbon age well, but not so porous that it will allow barrels to leak. It must be distilled at no more than 160 proof (80% alcohol by volume). Nothing can be added at bottling to enhance flavor or sweetness or alter color. The other grains used to make bourbon, though not stipulated by law, are malted barley and either rye or wheat.

Bourbon is amber colored, and a little sweeter and heavier in texture than other whiskeys. Bourbon gets it’s name from Bourbon County in Kentucky where it originated.

And don't forget, there is whiskey and then there is whisky. The first is American, the second is Scotch/Irish.

I drove right by Jack Daniel's distillery earlier today. Didn't have time to stop this time. Maybe next week. Jack on the rocks is one of my favorites.

To answer the question... If I'm open carrying my 1911 I call it whiskey. If I'm conceal carrying then it's Burbon.

I had rye whiskey for the first time about a month ago, and found it to have a subtler taste than bourbon. I liked it!
