The Practical Still Podcast: My rye tastes like bourbon. Why?
Why is it sometimes difficult to tell the difference between rye whiskey and bourbon whiskey?
It often just comes down to the mash bill of the whiskey itself. When a rye whiskey also has nearly 40% corn in the recipe, it isn't surprising that it can be hard to tell if you're drinking a rye whiskey or a bourbon with just 51% corn in its mash bill.
We talk through these details and much more in episode 3 of The Practical Still.
