I don't know much about American Whiskey, but they mentioned something interesting to me at the end of this video on the Heaven Hill website: https://heavenhilldistillery.com/making-americas-whiskey.php It's the fact that the whiskey is charcoal filtered before being bottled. I thought this charcoal filtration step was unique to Tennessee Whiskey and is what sets it apart. I didn't think that Kentucky Bourbons use the same technique. Am I missing some detail that sets the Lincoln County Process apart from the rest, or is it just a regional thing? Again, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to American Whiskies, so I may be the only one surprised to learn this about Heaven Hill.
