Barton has a traditional mash bill, 75% corn, 15% rye and 10% malted barley. I've heard estimates of as much as16 or 18% rye but that's still not especially high compared to Grand Dad or Four Roses. The difference is Barton introduces the rye into the cooker with the corn earlier than other distillers which makes the final product more dry and rye forward in profile. I expect that production technique will remain irrespective of what other changes Sazerac may have in store for the brand.
