BTW, bourbon is corn-based, not rye-blech! based...
I see you're from Lithuania; What do local people there usually use to make Samohan?

They must have had other distilleries in Canada, also, since they were/are nation wide. Anyway, he was one of the people there that would blend CR. This was pretty amazing since he didn't drink. When he was blending, he would go by how the mixture smelled, since he would never taste the stuff. He would blend about 5 or 7 types of rye whisky to make CR. It was also aged for about 7 years, maybe longer. He had a really good nose for this and I remember him once telling us that he thought the Tequila we were drinking was fusel oil. Since he used to blend CR, we all thought he was some kind of god. To him, Tequila was real crap.
