Exactly, this is what all blenders do. It's a complicated art, and the resulting blends are often worthy of as much, and sometimes more, praise as their single malt components. The first episode of the BBC series Scotch! The Story of Whisky (free on Amazon Prime) provides a nice intro to the history and craft of whisky blending.
Depends how smokey you like your Scotch. My fav is Bowmore — it’s a great balance between sweet and smoke. (Laphroaig is way too smokey for me.) Anything from Islay is going to have some peat smoke and sea flavors — it’s what makes Islay Scotch famous. Try some non-Islay Scotch if you don’t like smoke.
If you can, find a good bar that has tasting flights.
Great resource here: ScotchWhisky.com
I also LOVE any whisky tutorial by Richard Paterson.
Watch and enjoy!
Last, if you have Amazon Prime, give this short little documentary about Scotch whisky a view: Scotch! The Story of Whisky
I found This: Scotch! The Story of Whisky on amazon prime.
It's also available for free through tubiTV for those (like me) without prime.
Or on Acorn TV for people who subscribe to that.
I couldn't find anything called Scotch: A Whiskey Story.
There’s also this one, free on Amazon Prime:
This one is quite good.
