      'Bourbon Whisky' pages 26-45:
      "Many grains are allowed in Bourbon but the mixture must contain a
      minimum of 51% corn and the remaining ingredients are generally
      proportioned between rye and barley malt. A common mixture is 60%
      corn, 28% rye and 12% barley malt....Other popular proportions would
      be 70% corn, 18% rye, and 12% barley malt and 75% corn, 13% rye and
      12% barley malt....
      The more flavorful Bourbons have around 60-70% corn; the lesser
      flavored up to the maximum 80%."

      3 Commercial Mash Bills are given -

      Traditionally cypress vats were used to ferment the mash. Back set or
