Grain used for Whiskey?

Question: What grain is generally used to make whiskey?

Answer: A bit tricky. Traditionally barley has been used to make all whisky. It is still the main grain for Scotch & Irish ones. However Canadian Rye Whiskey (and American) has more than 50% rye. Bourbon which originated in Kentucky uses more than 50% corn or maize.
