Hello All!

This is my first post, and I joined the site with a very specific question in mind. As a bourbon lover who's long on enthusiasm but short on cash, I'm always looking for a good bottle at an even better price. I recently switched from Jim Beam White Label to Evan Williams, which is cheaper here in Chicago. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I like it as much, if not more than, Jim Beam White!

One thing I don't understand, however, is that Evan Williams is a charcoal-filtered bourbon. I always thought that charcoal filtering is what distinguishes Tennessee whiskey from bourbon.

Maybe this question was already answered in some thread that I just can't find...
