A blended whiskey (or whisky) is the product of blending different types of whiskeys and often also neutral and near-neutral spirits, coloring, and flavorings. It is generally the product of mixing one or more higher quality straight or single malt whiskies with higher-alcohol-content spirits or neutral spirits and water. Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and the United States are common countries of origin for blends.
Some examples of blended whiskey include Dewar's, Johnnie Walker, Seagram's Seven Crown, Jameson Whiskey, Chivas Regal, Old St Andrews, and Black & White.

Famous quotes containing the word whiskey:
“Off Highway 106
At Cherrylog Road I entered
The 34 Ford without wheels,
Smothered in kudzu,
With a seat pulled out to run
Corn whiskey down from the hills,”
—James Dickey (b. 1923)
