This may be a dumb question, but here it is anyway and I don't know what got me thinking about it.

I know there are wheaters and there are ryes. This, of course, meaning the the 2nd most used ingredienet (after corn) is rye or wheat. Is there another type of bourbon where the 2nd most usd ingredienet is not rye or wheat? Are there any barley bourbons?

This probably isn't exactly what you meant, but there are several venerable rye formula bourbons with more barley than rye. IW Harper/Old Charter come to mind. According to Regan and Regan they are 86% corn, 6% rye and 8% barley.

It's very possible that at least one of the Staggs had a higher barley content than rye.

Here (http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?p=45352&highlight=bill#post45352) in post #2, for one. One can't really know, but if Ken Weber states that Stagg has been made from the same mash bill as Old Charter, I put 2 and 2 together to guess it's possible.
