You might want to try a dye rather than a stain. I’ve oly used dye once but it worked quite well at evening up colors and worked well on top of an oil based rub on poly finish.
I know it’s too late for this but a coat of dewaxed shellac as a sealer before staining would have prevented the blotchiness.
