The vanilla used is Madagascar Bourbon
Keep in mind that purchasing "Madagascar Bourbon" is kinda like purchasing "a burger". There is a vast array of different Madagascar Bourbon vanilla out there, and depending on where you source it from, where it was originally grown, how it was grown, how it was conserved etc..., its flavor profile can be vastly different.

So even if you started with the exact same recipe as Nielsen-Massey, you may not end up with the same result.

I thought Madagascar Bourbon referred to the bean and region where it was grown?

There are half-a-dozen recipes on the internet. Why guess?
I have been searching/looking at the recipes. Since this is going to be the first time I am making it.... I am hesitant as the vanilla beans were so costly I would like a recipe to duplicate the NM brand which I use.

WOW. ... I just looked up recipes too. ... It's brutally simple. You do not have to follow the ingredients from the side of your bottle. NO ... YOU ... DON'T. ... Leave the gum tragacanth and the xanthum gum on the shelves of wherever you were going to buy them. ... SERIOUSLY ... Just use the highest quality vanilla beans you can afford.

Here are some recipes:
