Hi musi--as I suggested elsewhere, if you want your questions to be considered, you would do well to start a new topic, rather than tacking onto someone else's. And if you are looking for interesting facts about whisky, just read as much of this site as you can! You might even find some actual true facts here in the forums, if you don't mind wading through all our nonsense.

musi,
If you want to learn about whisky, I would buy a book on the subject. Something like Jim Murray's Complete Book of Whisky - you can get it on amazon.co.uk for around £10.

You need to know about blends, single malts, bourbon and I guess Jack Daniel's to start with.

The Jack Daniels's (JD) question is tough to answer and very hard to understand unless you first know what bourbon is. Essentially JD undergoes something called 'the Lincoln county process' - google it. This changes the spirit in some way and is at the root of the controversy. Whether JD still qualifies as a bourbon or not is a subject of tedious debate. Bourbon does not have to be made in Kentucky to be bourbon. It is also made in Virginia.
