How to Select the Perfect Bourbon


It’s a great time to be a Bourbon fan, with lots of different bottles and producers on shelves and drinks lists. Even though all of it is made from at least 50% corn and aged in charred new oak barrels, not all Bourbon is created equally. Maybe you like a spicy one with a high rye mash bill, or a soft one made with a high wheat mash bill. Food Republic has some advice for finding your perfect Bourbon, no matter your flavor preference.

The recent spike has sparked an onslaught of new brands, and old brands are doing their best to keep up with a steady stream of new expressions. Amid all this abundance, it can be difficult to settle on a bourbon that’s right for you. Read the entire article on Food Republic.
