    Re: Favorite Personal Blends, or mixes, of Whiskies

    am drinking the mambamix, 1:1 OGDBIB and RR10, right now. gotta say it is much better than most of the vattings I have tried, and might even become a regular offering in my kitchen.

    Favorite Personal Blends, or mixes, of Whiskies

    Tried a new blend tonight, 75% OWA and 25% Bernheim. Interesting. I thought it may be a good mix to add in some of the smoothness of the Berheim to the OWA but it was cloyingly sweet and lost that subtle leather/wood note from the OWA. Still tasty but no where near the OWA/W12 blend.

    Re: Favorite Personal Blends, or mixes, of Whiskies

    On melding, I believe there is a difference (but I also once believed there was a Santa Claus, so take that for what it's worth). I did a blend and tasted it a few minutes later, and when I tasted it a few weeks later - I thought it was quite a bit better. What I hadn't done though, is taste side by side the same blend at different "mingling times". That might be a fun experiment - make a blend and wait a week, make another wait another week, make a third and wait an hour - then compare. My guess is that the greatest difference (which may yet be very subtle) would be between the hour and week. But I've heard others wait several weeks. My approach has been to mingle, then have a pour (I usually make a 750 mL batch, so the rest has plenty of time!)
