    I would say experimenting with a vatting of W12,V17 and JPS 18 would be your most likely combination for success.I mean you would then have all key components including Bernheim,BT and SW should be pretty close with a little tweaking of ratios.

    That small splash of KC sounds interesting Steve and going to try myself. My last bottle of Knob Creeek Reserve, a Binny's pick was quite excellent and in its own way as good as a PVW. Time to grab another.

    I like what I'm hearing here. If one want's something a bit different or to reproduce a flavor profile vatting is the way to go rather buying a more expensive bottle.

    There is no holy grail.

    Bradley's suggestion is a good one.
    Well said. I bought my first PVW last year and was unimpressed for the hype and dough. I would take a WLW over PVW.

    Gary I expect a number of folks will eventually come to your conclusion.

    A most interesting discussion ... I regularly have OWA and Weller 12 on-hand ... if VW doesn't offer a quantum leap ... guess I'm not missing much based on $.

    Wow, Sailor! Now there's a concoction if ever I saw one! I happen to have all 3 of the ingredients, and by the by, I must say I really enjoy the KCSB. Say what you will, right now I put that way up high on my list of fav's. A li'l splash of purified water and it's hard to believe it's a 120 proofer. I shall try that recipe. Down here in S FL you never find dusties of any kind (not counting the '09 4R Mariage I stumbled upon), so you make do with what you have. That is one of the reasons I started this thread.
