    Re: The SB Blend.... Best ratio of OWA & Weller 12???

    This is a great idea that I had never considered before. I love OWA, and have yet to try the W12, but I think this will be something I will try when I grab a bottle of W12.

    Re: The SB Blend.... Best ratio of OWA & Weller 12???

    I'm gonna post here just to bump this up, and......... If I have some time in the next few days or so, I just might start working on my next special Weller vatting. I've got an 09 WLW, some Weller SR, and a SW Old Fitz Prime amongst other things that I might try and work with this time.

    I've got a vatting of WLW'05:OWA:W12 (2:1:1) that's delicious.

    Re: The SB Blend.... Best ratio of OWA & Weller 12???

    Taking a cue from an Oscar post a few days ago I went 2/3 Weller 12 (bottled 2007 and delicious with no soot that has creeped in to current versions) and 1/3 of another beaut, a 9 year OWA SB. The sum was equal to and different but not greater than its parts.

    I'm a big fan of the 3:1, maybe leaning to 3:2, ratio of OWA to W12 myself.

    I prefer a W12 heavy blend of about 3:1.

    This thread reminds me that I need to mix a new batch up...

    As a housewarming gift for a friend I gave him a blend of about 60% age stated OWA with about 25% Van Winkle Lot B (which is very akin to W12, but better) and about 15% WLW. It was excellent.

    Re: The SB Blend.... Best ratio of OWA & Weller 12???

    After growing paranoid about the posts of W12 disappearing, I've mixed some "micro-batches" of OWA & Larceny and OWA & Old Fitz 1849. Then (of course), found a W12 I love my 60% OWA/40% W12 mix, and if anything might go heavier on the OWA (or I like the idea of throwing a little WLW in there). But for now, can't mess with it when it is so freaking delicious as is!

    Haven't tried it yet, letting it marry for a week first. But hopefully!
