Blue is more refined. It's good don't get me wrong, but I want character in my whisky. Green is a bit intense in comparison. It's all about what you like and what you can afford.
Black is a staple at my bar and for the cost is a nice introduction to whisky.
I agree with your comment about "refined" and "character" which is why this thread have me thinking about trying out the other brands. With the new coupon book at Costco, it is perfect timing for me to check out a 12 or 18 year scotch while my family do their shopping.

If I can find Blue label at this price I'm in. The odd thing is I have had Blue label on several different occasions and because it's a blend it has tasted dramatically different (also, they switched the blend recently as a distillery went out of business for them). One Bottle was fantastic (about 7 years old now) and one of the best scotches I have ever tasted while others were "meh".
My personal favorites:
Balvenie 17 Doublewood
A.D. Ratray Bowmore 20yr 1991
Dalmore Bordeaux Finesse
More Regular Drinkers:
Black Label, Green, Double Black
Balvenie 12, 15
I haven't had a whole lot of higher end scotches but have had a good amount of scotch.
