HOWEVER - just as it is with wines, other spirits are also often subjected to blind tastings, and when a consensus of educated palates agree about the superiority of something, it becomes damned likely that it is simply "better". Of course, it goes without saying that it doesn't matter which is the better orange when you're comparing apples to oranges. If what your taste craves is the best apple, the best orange simply won't do.
That is not really a HOWEVER.
Better blended whiskies could exist.
But it is just not done. It is not produced.
Nobody would pay the higher price.
There is a lot more foolish snobbery in the field of whisky than there is in the field of wine.
