Scotch 101: How to Tell The Difference Between a Blend and a Single Malt

What are the best ways to drink a blend and a single malt scotch?

"When trying any whiskey for the first time, I’d suggest trying it neat. Then, add a little less than a capful of room temperature distilled water, and try it again. Water will allow the liquid to reveal more of its character.  I like one large ice cube in Dewar's 18. The large ice touches more liquid, which will cool it without diluting too quickly, making every sip reveal different levels of flavor. Occasionally, you might want something to help you keep cool on a hot summer’s day: I suggest Dewar's White Label and Ginger beer."
