Whisky or Whiskey

Insider knowledge: J&B Rare whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be J&B Rare whiskey, as opposed to whisky.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is of medium-body with a distinct nutty note. There are hints of fruit and dry wood, a citrus character and a little barley. The palate is of medium-body with good balance. There are notes of berry fruits, hints of cut fruit salad and caramel. The finish is quite short with a touch of oak and spice.

User Reviews of the J&B Rare

do not waste your money

one of the worst whisky ever made, made for mixing so you do not taste this foul drum

8th September 2014

Mr. J&B

My favorite blended scotch. Has a nice little bite at the end. I like it better than Johnnie Walker Red, Dewar's, and Chivas Regal(expensive rotgut in my opinion). Take a Mello Yello soda add two measures of J&B. Very nice drink Call it a Mellow Scotsman

a classic whisky

This one has stood the test of time. I find it to be crisp, refreshing and elegant yet simple (and I mean simple in a very good way). As long as they don't go crazy with the amount of caramel colouring, this one should continue to be a reliable blend for eternity! I agree completely with one reviewer here: I prefer this over some single malts too. Much depending of course on my mood, wallet etc etc

High Volume Blended Scotch... but a good one

This is the blended scotch with the best "nosing" ever to me... astonishing complex and various aromas - take a nosing glas and try it. Quality is "upper middle class" of young blended Scotch, much less added caramel like in J.W. Red Label, Grants, oder Hankey Bannister , but still not on the level of B&W and Vat69... It has a pleasantly light&sweet taste without the typical rough-bitternes of grain whisky... and the blend isnt boring at all, even if goes down so well...I prefer it over many cheap Single Malts... if you more into "Speyside-Style" J&B is the Blend for you... its very easy to drink, even in summer. and I thinks thats why it is so popular in Spain, Italy, France etc.

J&B my favourite blended scotch

Why is it so difficult to find J&B on sale in the UK but it is available from supermarkets in France & Belguim?

18th June 2014

Drink way to much

I took a slip off of one if my friends bottles but before I ever take a drink I smell it first and it smelled like tequila and I don't really like tequila then I took a swig of it and it tasted like tequila is that normal

Light and refreshing

I find this blend to be light and refreshing! I taste light citrus, minimal floral and a hint of smoky peat. I do prefer deeper layered blends, and I find Chivas Regal to be a little richer in taste. I really enjoy a single malt on the rocks with a splash of ice water! The J&B experience is light-hearted in comparison!

From a newbie's poin of view

Now, I don't have as much of a cultured palate, and I'm not as armed with the whisky vocabulary as most of the people here, but I'm not quite sure I'd drink this neat. The nose was quite inviting as it smelled refreshing, but I didn't appreciate it in my mouth. It reminded me of those gummy bears that I'd soak in gin for a day before eating. But hey! It's really great with rootbeer or cream soda! -M.G. (MNL, Philippines)

What has happened to this old blend, used to be a nice blend with all the qualities you'd expect.... But I've just had a dram of a new batch...... YUCK....to light and to floral with a very strong vanilla finish, there are far superior blends on the shelf for the same price...... I hope they find the error of their ways and get it sorted.

Drink

its like a dogs cock soaked in good a good malt ok but you don't want it

21st January 2014

GREAT TASTE !!!

This is one of the Best compare to brands even more expensive and surely over rated. I recommend J&B Rare to lovers and amateurs who would like to experiment a smooth and tasty blend of Scoth and Wiskey

7th January 2014

Awesome value

If you like Glenlivet, this is a steal in the States, where it sells for $20. Glenlivet sells for about $40. J and B is half the price and just as nice.

I'm tired of talkin', I just wanna get up to my shack and get drunk.

If it's good enough for R.J. MacReady when he's trying to cope with a shape shifting alien at sub zero temperatures, it's good enough for me.

Great Value

J&B Rare is a great tasting blend. Quite friendly with fruity gentle flavour. It goes particularly well with ginger ale.

3rd August 2013

J&B Rare

This is a good blend, basically its like a slightly better, more refined version of Bells.

31st May 2013

Great straight

A petite scotch. If you like overpowering smokiness this isn't for you. It is for those liking a good tasting whiskey that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. In this price range you can't beat it.

1st May 2013

Good whiskey

OK. It's not one tasting like an ash tray or smoked dirt. It's a light tasting scotch. It tastes good. I can't for the life of me think why it gets such a bad rap. It is not overpowering or harsh. It goes down smoothly and has a floral note to the taste. Not a long finish but it's good.

1st May 2013

stay true!

This one is an old classic of a blend; as long as they don't go crazy with the caramel colouring!! J and B Rare should be crisp and fresh. Whats that old sayin'?..Oh, yeah, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it."

1st March 2013

yuck

Even cheap Cluny is better.

Why pay more for less? This is a good quality Scotch and personally feel if you pay a premium for a single malt your are being foolish. Comparable in quality (not flavor) to Dewars.

10th November 2012

I wouldn't buy it, but it's not that bad

It's bad as far as whiskey goes, but it's still better then most blends out there(J Walker, Ballantines) I would go for Vat 69 or Grant's FR. but beside those it's the best in it's price range

20th October 2012

premier leugue scotch for a football league price

Reasonable price for a great blended scotch. Great drink that does not kick your head the day after.

J & B Rare

Very good for the price. People who like to drink Scotch frequently but want to economies of every day things.

27th January 2012

Truely

Truely the best scotch on the market, as in this is not a malt fantastic as a long drink with a mixer or truely delicious on it's own and I don't like scotch!!!

I love malt,ever since living in scotland for a period .I find J&B Rare suits my palette the best of all I have tried, It is smooth,delicate with a beautiful aftertaste

29th November 2010

Not bad... not bad

as i write this i am sipping this delightful concoction. J&B have made a very smooth drink for those with a balanced palet. For the money i paid this hastruly surprised me, after some bad choices in the past....Grants scotch whisky to name one. I would rate this up with Teachers highland cream as one of the best blended Scotches for ones money. Buy and enjoy...Responsibly!!!
