If you have an all grain fermented mash distilled not exceeding 160 proof then it is a Whiskey. If the grain bill is %51 a certain grain (wheat, rye, corn, ect,) then your whisky is wheat whisky, rye whisky, corn whisky, ect… There is no indication / requirement as to the char level required for aging whiskey.
Hope this helps.
