American Whiskey

Known for being a particularly rich, spicy style of spirit, American whiskey’s characteristics come in large part due to the barrels used for maturation. Typically, and always in the bourbon industry, fresh newly charred oak barrels are used to age whiskey, and the result of this is toasty wood notes and sweet vanilla flavour. Styles such as rye whiskey offer up even more spice and oily character, and there are some great examples on the market. Similar in many ways to bourbon, Tennessee whiskeys undergo something known as the Lincoln County Process, which involves filtering the spirit through sugar maple charcoal. Other styles in America include corn and wheat whiskey, as well as American single malt, and the unaged “white dog”, also known as moonshine.
