    Successful Two Bourbon Vattings

    Gary, thanks for the input. I will give those ratios a try next time around.

    Re: Successful Two Bourbon Vattings

    Down to the last tidbit of of my only Van Winkle bourbon (a Lot B from last fall), and with PVW of any sort being virtually unattainable in the NY/NJ area, I figured I'd take a simple shot at recreating a Lot B with what I had on hand. Took 2/3 Weller 12 for the same essential profile, mixed with 1/3 Vintage 17 wheater for the extra richness and depth it provides, and it was quite delicious. Probably even better than the Lot B due to the V17 adding quite a bit of aged wheated goodness to the mix.

    My post was going to be simply "toluene" but that's too short. To me, Testors Model Cement smells strongly of toluene.

    It should, it's about 70% toluene.

    I have a house vatting that I like very much: 2/3 Very Old Barton BIB to 1/2 Old Grand-Dad BIB. They complement each other nicely. (I first tried half and half, but I like this ratio better.)

    I find that wheaters vat well. I combined Weller 12, OF 12, DN 1843 and Bernheim in about equal parts and came up with something better than any of them on their own. Several other tasters of this vatting have agreed with me.

    Re: Successful Two Bourbon Vattings

    I too am a big fan of the 1:1 vatting of Weller 12 and OWA 107. It makes a great whiskey. I am now just buying a 750ml of each, pouring into a large pitcher, and then re-bottling.

    I am looking forward to trying some of the other suggestions posted above.

    Thanks again for the ideas.

    Re: Successful Two Bourbon Vattings

    This thread made think about blending my two all time favorite bourbons: HH white BiB and VOB BiB. Ratio was 1 part HH to 3 parts VOB. It's got the spiced heat of the HH and (by comparison) the refined less spicy but more orangey flavored of the VOB. Glad I picked up a bunch of both in KY last week!

    Re: Successful Two Bourbon Vattings

    I tried one of 3 parts Weller 12 to 1 part Larceny. The Larceny adds a whole new layer of flavor, very interesting. It takes a week or so for the flavors to meld, but I am starting to enjoy it.
