I mentioned 'vatting' above, where you mix various straight whiskeys to 'vat' a new drink. I do this at home by mixing some 'dry' tasting bourbon with some 'sweet and spicy' bourbon, add some rye whiskey and drink it up.
If you're interested in trying this, just mix a shot of Wild Turkey with a shot of Old Charter, or what have you, add another shot or two, tasting all the time until you find something you like better than the original whusk. My current go-to recipe is 1 part wild turkey 101, 1 part old charter 8 year, 1 part wellers 7 year, 1 evan williams (black label), 1 Ezra Brooks and 1/2 part Old Overholt rye. I usually mix this with 1.75 'handles' of bourbon and a fifth of rye. I re-bottle and relabel the result and drink it year round + give some away to a few pals. It proves you don't have to pet to be popular, just show up with a bottle of tasty whusk and you're welcome almost anywhere.
