A Rye or a Scotch whiskey?

Rye and Scotch are both types of whiskey, but they are made from different grains and have some distinct differences. Rye whiskey is made from a mash of at least 51% rye grain, while Scotch is made from a mash of malted barley. This gives rye a spicier flavor with notes of fruit and pepper, while Scotch tends to be smoother and peatier. Rye is primarily produced in the United States, while Scotch is primarily produced in Scotland.
