    I can't think of any mixed drinks with scotch in them that taste good.

    Scotch should always be neat, or with water, or on the rocks.

    I'm sure there are some just can't think of one at the moment.

    Cameron's Kick leaps to mind for me. An interesting blend of scotch, Irish Whiskey, lemon juice and orgeat. Although it doesn't necessarily sound like it I find it surprisingly good. Blended scotch and particularly Famous Grouse is usually recommended for some reason.

    The Blood and Sand is the other scotch classic I suppose besides the Rob Roy that comes to mind. Although I tend to like mine with Mezcal replacing the scotch.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    My favorite bartender made me a "smoked" old fashioned once that was pretty tasty (he suggested it to me).

    There was a movie starring Ray Milland called 'The River's Edge" made in 1957. He and his lady friend sit at a bar where he orders "A Martini and an Old Fashioned made with Scotch". The tone of the scene was to suggest sophistication but I wondered if that might have been a popular way to make the drink at the time.

    The reason is probably that it is a very very mild tasting scotch, and also probably the most commonly available scotch found.

    This is not a smoky whisky. Don't see a source for smoke flavor in his "smoked" old fashioned.
