Where does the Bourbon Cask come from?

When distillers use Sherry Casks the always tell us Oloroso, PX. Madeira, etc. They don't tell us what type of Bourbon Cask is used? Is it a WL Weller or a Elijah Craig or Jim Beam? Do you know which distiller uses what type of Bourbon Cask? I'm curious! I know Deanston uses mostly Four Roses Bourbon Casks.

Thank you @vanPelt for the link, and @FMichael for starting a simular discussion 4 years ago. The information I distilled (ha!) form this discussion:

Some are more sure than others, some are ‘facts’ some are ‘rumours':

• Ardbeg - Jack Daniel's

• Ardmore – Marker’s Mark

• Arran - Jim Beam, Old Granddad, Eiljah Craig

• Benromach - Jim Beam

• Deanston – Four Roses

• Glenglassaugh - George Dickel

• Glenkinchie - Bulleit Bourbon

• Glenmorangie – Jack Daniel's, Heaven Hill

• Jameson - Wild Turkey

• Kilchoman - Buffalo Trace

• Laphroaig – Maker’s Mark
