When it comes to picking out whisky, the options can be overwhelming. There are so many flavors and options to choose from. In its simplest form, whisky is a spirit distilled from malted grain, specifically, barley or rye. The three most common types of whisky are bourbon, Tennessee, and rye whisky. The types and flavors of whisky come from the grain that is used to craft them.
