My dad used to use real Whale Oil-- in little yellow cans with a whale spouting on the label.
Then there was Hoppe's #9 solvent and gun oil.
Then Break Free CLP- great for cleaning and freeing up dirty actions.
For gun oil- whatever's available on the shelf when I run out.

For copper fouling I recommend you all try Wipe-Out bore cleaner foam. Zero brushing of the bore. Keeps the copper fouling under control with less scrubbing, fewer patches and elbow grease. Smells good.
As far as oil, there are many new gun oils and they're all pretty good.

I never saw whale oil, but my dads gun oil was in the traditional recangular metal can with a spout (like 3 in one)  It was called "Gun Oil"   i assume it was either Parker Hale or Bisley.
I use Outers gun oil because, thats what the store had? or it came in a cleaning kit? Who knows.
