Forbes looks at a forgotten utility adult beverage, in a piece called “Blended Scotches We Love“:
The big advantage of drinking blended Scotch is that it doesn’t have to be taken seriously; you don’t have to treat it with the ritualistic reverence that goes along with drinking single malts.
Rather, it’s a comfortable, everyday drink–something you don’t have to think too much about. Simply throw a handful of ice into a glass and add a good, blended scotch (and, perhaps, some soda). It’s a drink you can enjoy it in the bar after work with your buddies or at a raucous party, and you won’t have to concentrate on savoring all of its subtle nuances.
Won’t make me give up my favorite clear beverage, but it certainly sounds good to me.
