If you're looking to shake off the last of the winter chill before spring finally arrives, a nice glass of bourbon can really do the trick. Bourbon is a type of whiskey, but it's actually only made in the US and must be distilled from at least 51% corn. Also, it can only be aged in new oak-charred barrels, which helps promote the delicious smoky flavor.
