A happy suprise: blended Scotch (like Dewars) mixes together a variety of sub-par Scotches. By some magic instead of creating a thoroughly loathesome drink, the defects mask each other out instead of amplifying each other while the good tastes emphasize each other, leaving you with something drinkable. I tried this with coffee and found that much the same thing happens. You may get funny looks as you pump one pot after another (the woman behind the counter double-checked the pots after I finished, thinking they must have all been empty. She shrugged her shoulders when she found them all full and decided I was just weird). Try it next time you have to choose between a variety of mediocre coffees!
