    Scotch "Grain Whiskey"

    I am assuming this product similar to American / Canadian grain whiskey...correct?
    Even bourbon if the maize % is high enough.

    In other words....if a Scotch whisky is made with grains other than barley.....wheat...maize / corn, rye etc....is it any different than any American or Canadian whiskey?

    Noting the flavor profile in the review above....not "Scotch" like in profile.

    Re: Scotch "Grain Whiskey"

    The ingredients are similar but I recall someone more knowledgeable than I, in some other thread, saying that Scotch grain whiskey and Bourbon/Rye were made differently...something about the way the initial fermentation is done I think.

    Re: Scotch "Grain Whiskey"

    While a Scotch grain whisky can be made from any grain it is usually un-malted barley or at least a high percentage of un-malted barley. That coupled with being stored in used bourbon barrels gives a very different flavor then bourbon or Canadian whiskies. I've never had or seen a Scotch grain whisky made from a high percentage of corn. It would be interesting I'm sure.
