I've been pretty obsessed with vatting things together lately, probably after I learned how incredible the OWA/W12 mashup is blended. I wonder, there's got to be other offerings like this, one shorter on proof or age, the other bigger and rougher, needing taming. I put together a Heaven Hill vatting like this not too long ago that I actually felt was better than the sum of its parts; some Old Heaven Hill Bonded plus Fighting Cock plus Evan Williams Single Barrel resulted in something not necessarily better than the single barrel, but definitely smoother and more complex and surprisingly delightful.
The only other one like this that I've discovered is that I LOVE Old Grand-Dad bonded mixed equal parts with Knob Creek. I just feel it reveals and enhances something in each that I don't notice while consuming each.
As I missed the Four Roses 125th this year and don't really want to plunk down $50 on a bottle of the single barrel in Oregon (not that its not good, but its around thirty bucks elsewhere) so I've been messing with Bulleit, Bulleit 10 year, and FRYL in differing parts, trying to reveal something not seen in either. It still needs work. Also, upon revisiting, I forgot how much I like Bulleit. I never even think about drinking it, but it was hitting the spot last night unbelievably, and then made a rather mind-blowing old-fashioned.
