For the record, the Templeton website still says they're the 95% rye mashbill. Well actually, they say 90+% specifically, but we all know what that leaves.

Thanks to everybody for all the posts regarding the MGPI mashbills I really think that to keep this from spinning out of control, the tree needs to stick to mashbills and other data that goes with products actually on the shelves. Including products that used to exist or may exist in the future is a black hole from which there is no escape.
I'll update the tree this week if I can.
While not quite the same as the Whiskey tree maintained here, GQ put out a visual representation recently:

CW - thanks for this view - totally cool.
Interesting but suggests a lack of true whiskey nerdiness was involved in the creation! Also interesting that they show a lack of separation between BF and HH while most everything else has a line separating them where appropriate.
For example while it may soon be true the current Saz 18 and VWFRR don't really belong on the same branch of the BT tree do they? And the two older Pappy's are in a state of transition from one branch to another.
Four roses ought to have ten trunks with branches growing to gether rather like a Banyan tree!
Old Fitz seems to branch off a wee bit early on the HH tree for some reason.
JD rye doesn't rate a mention while Dickel Rye, Jacob's Ghost and other white dogs make an appearance.
And I guess they have no clue what to do with the various CEHT or PHC expersions!
It does help to emphasize the rarity of well-aged stock, tho.
I wondered about the placement of some, like the ETL looks like it well below Blantons and AAA 10 yr, when ETL is bottled (at least recently) closer to 9 yrs (and I read somewhere that Harlen said Blantons was typically in the 6-8 yr range). Interesting display of information though!
