I use their walnut DO from time to time, mostly to reinvigorate an old walnut piece after stripping it. The Watco Cherry “flavor” is awful. On light colored woods it just turns it a light pink. Perhaps it is only for use on cherry? I do not really like their natural Danish Oil either. Last time I tried it I was pretty disappointed in the results and ended up applying a wipe-on poly to fix it.

I would much rather use Tried and True Varnish Oil when I want a natural finish and do not intent to top it with a poly finish. T&T finishes are probably the closest you will find to a true BLO. They use a heat process to polymerize rather than the additives that most of the others use. I actually like the smell of their finishes. T&T released a line of stains recently but I have not found anyone locally that carries them yet to try them.
