Bourbon vs. Tennessee whiskey

e.d. | Feb 14, 200304:12 PM     41

Since we've raised the bourbon issue already, I'd like to see what other hounds think about a pet peeve of mine: Tennessee Whiskey. While bourbon has to be made to rather strict specifications--at least 3 years of aging in new charred oak barrels, at least 50% corn, but not more than 75% corn (except when produced and bottled by the actual distiller)--I don't believe there are any specifications for Tennessee whiskeys. And to me, Jack Daniels is over-rated, over-hyped, and over-priced. Does anyone agree?
