Whisky

Whisky also known as whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Various grains are used in the production of Tennesse whiskey some of these can be malted and include gains such as corn (maize), barley, wheat and rye. Whisky is generally aged in traditional wooden casks that are generally made from white oak which has undergone a charring process.
Whisky is a very strictly regulated spirit throughout the world, it has many classes and types and each must be prepared and produced in a certain way. The typical thought whiskey has several characteristics that are shared throughout all the different  classes and types, these are the fermentation of grains, distillation, and ageing in wooden barrels.

Scotch Whisky

whiskey for my flaskScotch whisky is as the name would have you believe made in Scotland, it is malt whisky or grain whisky which is often simply called Scotch.
Originally Scotch whisky was made from malted barley however in the late 18th century commercial distilleries decided to start introducing whiskey that was made from both wheat and rye. There are five distinct categories that Scotch whisky is divided into, these are; single malt Scotch whisky, single grain Scotch whisky, blended malt Scotch whisky (formerly called “vatted malt” or “pure malt”), blended grain Scotch whisky, and blended Scotch whisky.
It is a stipulation that to become a Scotch Whiskey it must be aged in oak barrels for at least three years. The age you find on a bottle of Scotch whisky should be expressed in numerical form and must show the age of the youngest whisky that was used to produce that particular product, for example if for argument sake a 10 year and a 7 year were mixed to create a whisky then the age on the bottle must be 7.   Any whisky which has a numerical age statement is known as guaranteed-age whisky, these are normally the best ones to go for.

Tennessee Whisky Flasks

Tennessee Whisky

Tennessee whisky is known as a straight bourbon whiskey which is produced in Tennessee in the USA. However is should be said that most current producers of Tennessee whiskey do not use the term “Bourbon”, they do not label their whiskey as Bourbon and so their bottles do not make mention of this, neither does any advertising materials.
Tennessee whiskey and bourbon whiskey are almost identical. It is said that most Tennessee whiskeys meet the criteria for bourbon, however the main difference in the production of bourbon is that after distillation Tennessee whiskey must be filtered through sugar maple charcoal.
Tennessee law requires that all current producers of Tennessee whiskey must make their whiskey in Tennessee.  There is one other main stipulation in the production of Tennessee whiskery and that is that the Lincoln County Process filtering process should be used prior to ageing the whiskey, this is said by some to make the product distinct from the more generic Bourbon.  There is one Tennessee whiskey producer that is exempt from this rule, Benjamin Prichard’s Tennessee Whiskey can produce Tennessee whiskey without going through the Lincoln County Process.
