Early Times whisky and coke. Whisky is made from wheat and Whiskey is made from corn. Whisky is Scottish and Whiskey is Irish. From a Ky. boy who grew up on it. LOL

Bourbon is made from an almost even mixture of wheat and corn. There are many whiskeys. Scotch, Irish and Canadian are not made from corn. Rocky Mtn. Whiskey is corn and wheat based like Bourbon.

Take the bourbon trail tours and they will tell you what they are made of. I've been to several living in the middle of the tour. Fascinating tours. Also why you can't make boubon or whisky, whiskey much south of Ky. is the water. No plant ever moves either as the water is from limestone rock and the taste would change.

AH! Some of the few white wines i like are from Germany, the kabinett, auslese, spatlese, and something i can't even attempt to spell that sounds like gerverstermeaner.
