Interesting - I know a number of people who really prefer blended scotches. And not simply the low end swill, but they'll break open the Royal Salute and other high end blends as well on occasion.
My father swears by his Johnnie Walker Black. Won't drink red and doesn't see the need for anything higher, and doesn't really care for most single malts. Will drink different variants of Old Grouse as well.
I don't have a taste for Scotch so I can't comment but the whole single malt vs. blended debate is interesting to me. Some folks, who take their whiskey seriously, seem to prefer blends. As with everything, its a matter of taste, I guess.
