    I thought light whiskey was by definition a blend of whiskey and neutral grain spirits. I may be wrong but here is the description from the Barton website:

    "Barton's QT Premium WhiskeyThe leader in the growing light whiskey category. Taste stands up on the rocks or mixed. A light-tasting, smooth blended whiskey made to satisfy today's drinking preferences."

    You are. Light whiskey is a special type, distinct from a blend containing neutral spirits. That the end result is difficult to distinguish from a blend is why "the growing light whiskey category" was a case of a marketeer hoping that saying it would make it so.

    This has been discussed to death here. Do a search on "light whiskey".

    I actually never thought there was any wrong with crown royal (but nothing that good either). Now, 7 crown- that just tastes like whiskey flavored vodka.

    That stuff wasn't even being made at the real distillery.

    As for whiskey blends, I'm afraid I simply avoid them so I can't say what is the worst for me.

    Boy, will I catch flak on this one. I thought Old Portrero single malt was the worst whiskey I'd ever experience, the I tried Wasmunds. I'd take Early Times over either of them - In fact I'm not sure I wouldn't pick old dish water over Wasmunds. However I know there are people on the board that love each of them.
    There's no such thing as bad whiskey, there's only over priced whiskey.

    The worst blended whiskey I ever had was Four Roses when Seagram made it. God awful stuff. I know why it's taking Four Roses so long to shake that off. But I also agree with Stu. That Old Potrero was
