A day of firsts:
1st bourbon and ginger ale combo. Used 1:2 OWA to ginger ale and added splash of Angostura bitters. Tasty. Definitely better than Manhattan I made last week (blech!), but not as good as my Old Fashioneds. I've been drinking lots of bourbon neat lately and wanted give my taste buds a break.
Also mixed first bottle of OWA and Weller 12 (50/50 ratio). Giving it a week before comparing it against the source bourbons. Hoping it will decrease the wood notes in the W12 (one of my favorite everyday pours) just a hair.
