    Your Beam bourbon mashbill does not equal 100......
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Haha.

    I'd agree, this is probably the most handy and most comprehensive undertaking on the net when it comes to American whiskey!!!

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    Adding something, yet nothing at all ...

    At a recent bourbon tasting in Toronto, Harlen Wheatley said this:

    "1792 is the highest rye bourbon that we [Sazerac] offer. We have 3 different Rye bourbons. ... It's almost close to maybe a Rye Whiskey. It's not Rye Whiskey, it's a bourbon. But it's close." The latter bit was speaking about the taste, not the mashbill.
    trying to walk a straight line,
    on sour mash and cheap wine

    What a weird thing for Harlan to say. They have at least 4 rye bourbon mashbills in regular production. Three if BT #2 is excluded, I guess. As for the "highest rye" bit, VOB I could believe, but 1792? Doesn't taste anything like a rye to me. Oh well, different strokes & all that. Thanks for the information Smithford!

    Yes. It wasn't, since Blanton's Gold was part of the tasting event. Perhaps he meant he was presenting 3 that night.

    Yeah, it doesn't taste like much of anything to me ...

    It's very weird, as Harlan would never say anything contradictory.
