Interesting fact… Bailie Nicol Jarvie Blended Whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bailie Nicol Jarvie Blended Whiskey, instead of whisky.
I really like this. The nose reminds me of pear drops and is slightly grassy. Taste is quite complex - no one flavour really hits me, which makes me want to drink this and think about this a lot. I get some peat (not a lot), some barley, some citrus - actually quite a sharp impact there. Best to hold it on your tongue for a few seconds and savour. The finish is quite different to the initial slap you get in your mouth - I get soft toffee, vanilla from the casks, quite unexpected. I agree with Ralfie's review - this should be drunk raw to get the best effect.
Almost as good as a 10 year old Glenmorangie. Hard to beat at any price.
For me,this is the best blended whisky on the planet. It is smooth,mellow and so so drinkable. I would drink this before many other Malt Whiskys that profess lineage above BNJ. Difficult to buy in Supermarket chains.
Without doubt the finest blended whisky I have ever tasted. Beats my single Malts. Can be found in Waitrose Asda Sainsbury and Morrissons from time to time.
