Funny, I don't really like Dewar's White Label either. Nor Johnny Walker Red. I'm not a single malt snob - well, okay, maybe I am, but there are inexpensive blended scotches that I like a lot. Teacher's is great stuff, and I think Ballantine's is a terrific value and very drinkable. Famous Grouse, while a bit over-caramelized, is decent too. I have a lot of respect for Ballantines, especially their older offerings. Their 17 year old blend, most commonly seen in duty free shops for about $50, is better than JW Blue Label as far as I'm concerned - and much less expensive.
