Color/tannin extraction - rye v. other ???


Recommended Posts

Does rye – or any other type of whiskey – pick up color from a newly charred barrel any faster or slower in comparison to bourbon? Or even brandy, for that matter? I thought color extraction and the rate thereof was entirely dependent on alcohol percent by volume, depth of char, and surface to volume ratio. If there is a difference, why?
