American whiskey is a distilled beverage produced in the United States from a fermented mash of cereal grain. The primary types of spirit included under this designation are bourbon whiskey, rye whiskey, rye malt whiskey, malt whiskey, wheat whiskey, Tennessee whiskey, and corn whiskey. All of these are made from mashes with at least 51% of their named grains.
Also included are blended whiskeys, blends of straight whiskeys, grain whiskeys, and spirit whiskeys, which do not specify a dominant grain. In the case of blends, American whiskey may include artificial colors and flavorings. Laws regulating the above products vary between those produced for consumption within the United States and those exported abroad.
American whiskeys may often be categorized as pertaining to toastiness, spice and vanilla sweetness. This is in large part due to the generous use of new charred oak (predominant in most styles of US whiskey, and used exclusively in the production of bourbon), which lends such stunning sweet flavors. USA makes the best Whisky in the world. Who would have thought that a bottle of 45 years aged “James Thompson” American Whisky would sell for $10,000 or a” Pappy Van Winkle”25 years for $15,000. As the demand for American Whiskey continues to grow in the world, consumers can expect to pay more for their desired bottles.
