    That's funny. So I wonder what the Beam mashbill actually is. Would Parker and Craig Beam at HH be using the same mashbill as they are at Jim Beam due to family heritage or would that not matter when it comes to stuff like mashbills?
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Brands on the market with whiskey from closed distilleries:

    Mix of Medley Rye and Cream of Kentucky rye (Bernheim distillery)- Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye.
    Stitzel-Weller bourbon- Pappy Van Winkle (20 & 23 only?), Jefferson's Reserve 17, 18 et al

    A few American bottlers and/or marketers have been purchasing 100% rye rye from a Canadian distillery or distilleries. It is often presumed these are from Alberta distillers in Calgary, but as of yet there is no firm evidence. So far, these are Whistle Pig, Jefferson's and Masterson's Rye. Jefferson's may be switching to American-made rye.

    *Brand(s) not wholly owned by the distiller.
    **Based on more current information.

    PROBLEMS/QUESTIONS/CONTROVERSIES: Regan & Regan list an approximate mashbill for all the bourbons made at "Ancient Age Distillery" as 80/10/10. That can't be right, but which mashbill does that represent, #1 or #2?

    Also, a mashbill of 75/20/5 is listed for Old Fitz, Weller and Rebel Yell while at Bernheim. What is the current mashbill?

    How much Stitzel-Weller is in Pappys 20 & 23, if any?

    How much Medley and Cream of Kentucky Rye does VWFRR contain, and how much Buffalo Trace distillate?

    Again, if anybody sees anything screwy, don't be shy! Post it here so it can be corrected.
    Time to get this post to the front/back of the thread. Great resource.

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Concerning Wild Turkey's ryes, I picked this off somewhere (sorry I didn't save the attribution) - "The Rye is made much like the bourbon, except there is about 65% rye in it (with about 23% corn and 12% barley malt). I say "about" because Jimmy doesn't hold with giving out exact figures, or too much information in general."

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Just plug it in, unless there's better information elsewhere. It was obviously the result of an 'interview' with JR and redbear has that confirming bit from Chuck, too. OTOH, it may be old data. You decide.

    In Josh's tree the WT Rye is double starred to denote that it reflects new information. He also refers to the same Regan book that Chuck does in the post you linked. I'm guessing that the info in that book is not correct.

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Okay, I noticed that the percentages changed between tree post #19 and tree post #56, but no discussion concerning the change for WT occurred between those posts - so what is the source of the 'new information'? I'll buy into it, but I'd like to see how it evolved ('cause the way it looks, WT was updated along with the HH information). Oops, now I see it in post #62 - a 2007 interview with Eddie Russell per Chuck. Never mind.

    Here's the most recent quote of the 65% rye stuff:
