There’s an old story in the whiskey world:
Before trucks and bottling lines, all American whiskey was aged and shipped in barrels, soaking up the flavor as it sloshed down the Mississippi River. Eventually, people took a particular liking to the barrels marked “Bourbon County, Kentucky.” They started clamoring for “bourbon.” And that’s how that whole thing got started.
There are many delicious types of whiskey or whisky, but bourbon and Scotch are two of the most beloved varieties. While both are known around the world and are strongly associated with their places of origin, that’s where the similarities stop.
There are many whiskey stores online which will serve you both but getting to the key points before that is a must.
