Bailie Nicol Jarvie Blended Whisky Reviews

Did it threaten Glenmorangie's other sales?

How sad! I can no longer buy the finest blended whisky in the world. Other enthusiasts, too, sadly miss it, with the entertaining and very "cod" label. Bring t back, unchanged, please!

11th November 2019

Great blended

A blend with, apparently, the highest single malt content BNJ was as good as any reasonable single malt. Saturday to hear it's no longer available. A sad situation indeed.

16th June 2019

Simply the best

I am now down to under half a bottle!! Since BNJ has been discontinued I have tried many different whisky's and there is NOTHING to compare. PLEASE, PLEASE, consider seriously returning this gem to the market.

19th October 2017

A perfect whisky.

I went through a few bottles of this gorgeous whisky. Better on the palate than any of the forty or so malts and blends of my stock. How could anyone justify creating such a perfect product, and then removing it from the market, makes no sense. This wasn't simply a nice whisky it was a perfect one, and sorely missed. The creatures of this should either bring it back, or a replacement of similar perfection.

7th September 2017

Mourn a great whisky that is no more

Marvellous! So sad it is discontinued. It was a blend with many of the wonderful qualities of a single malt.

27th August 2017

any alternative around ?

anyone have a good alternative to the wonderful BNJ ?

24th May 2017

My favourite blended whisky ever

I loved BNJ and used to buy it all the time. Then they stopped making it. What an awful shame.
Luckily I still have 2 bottles stashed away!
Hopefully they will let BNJ rest in peace and not re launch it with a new recipe like JW Green Label.

11th April 2017

My Favourite Whiskey - Ever

The first Whiskey I ever enjoyed when starting out on the drinking journey. My tastes have matured since but I still remember this one. Have some stashed away for a special occasion.

28th December 2016

Need it back

In school we were at scottland and i bought it for my dad in a little shop in edinburgh, a customer told me to take these one this was in 2004

My dad turns 60 this year and it would be sooooo cool to give it to him again

Fyi: we bought it several times at a hp from germany, but they also dont have it since 4 years

2nd October 2016

A taste from the past

A couple of weeks ago I was in a whisky bar in Aberdeen and found they had half a bottle of BNJ hidden behind a row of other bottles. I bought a wee dram and it reminded me of just what a wonderful whisky this was and how much I missed it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!

28th September 2016

O. Yersel, Calgary, Canada

I first heard of BNJ at "Whisky Galore" in Christchurch, NZ, about 15 years ago. They were out of stock. On the way home, I tried it in Australia. Fell in love with it. None was available in Canada or USA. Since then, every time I was in UK, or Australia, I enjoyed BNJ, and brought a bottle or two home. It was an exceptionally enjoyable whiskey at a reasonable price. Today I found out that it is available no more. It is a pity that the owners of Glenmorangie (Macdonald family ?) sold it to a French industrialist firm LVMH. Obviously LVMH have no pride in making a great product. Devoid of human touch? As Mr Graham Mackenzie said, it probably is the work of accountants who know the cost of everything, and the value of none. They could even be totally alien to Whisky. What a pity. Please bring it back. 16th June 2016

20th June 2016

Graham Mackenzie

The most tasteful, smooth blend of whisky that was available to the world has been withdrawn, obviously by anonymous philistines who have never even tasted this nectar. Could it be that the accountants have looked at the figures and decided that the returns weren't good enough. Typical, they know the cost of everything, but the value of nothing. It's time for the return of quality!

11th May 2016

Marelle Grahame

This has been my favourite whisky for years. Please go back to production.

24th April 2016

martin steel

After drinking this for years searching for it since xmas 2015 I am sorely disappointed to find it has been discontinued! It was far better than most cheap single malts and way ahead of the usual blended whiskies.I wish I had known it was to be discontinued I would have stocked up.

9th March 2016

Bailie Nicol Jarvie Blended Whisky

Fantastic drop, one of the best I've tasted in quite a while. I'm half way through one bottle, only two left, so PLEASE bring it back.

20th February 2016

darryl haddaway

Why ,i,ve been wondering why i couldnt buy this exellent whisky anymore and now i know . It was simply the best blended whisky on the market . Please please please reconsider and start producing again

9th February 2016

So it's true

Why, oh why has this wonderful whiskey been discontinued? No one could tell us the reason it was no longer on the shelves. My husband and I have really enjoyed this whiskey over the years, we still have a few bottles which will be kept for special occasions

5th February 2016

Discontinued? This is an outrage!

A delicate blend that was much nicer than many of the lighter Speyside single malts I have tried. It was superb value for money. Now I know why I haven't seen it for a while. I can't believe it will have gone forever. It is far too good to never be seen again.

29th January 2016

My Favourite Blended whisky by a long mile, and its discontinued!!!

It was smooth,full flavoured and with a lightness of a Malt. Do I miss this BNJ Whisky, damn right I do.

21st January 2016

Car Batty

For such a super whisky to be discontinued... pah
we miss it v much!
Please bring it back.

7th January 2016

Jack Sleeth

Probably the best blended whisky ever produced WHY have they stopped producing somebody should be taken to task over this travesty

6th January 2016

Anthony Dale

My wife and I have been drinking BNJ for some years (in the suburbs of Melbourne and elsewhere) and find it delightful. I'm deeply disappointed, even horrified, to hear it has been discontinued and wonder at the crassness of the maker. Please bring it back, but I suppose that might take several years to build up stocks of the various whiskies used and, at 81, I probably don't have several years to wait! (I still have four bottles, which will probably not be widely shared.)

17th December 2015

Tragic! a classy blend unlike any other whisky..

This is so depressing - a wonderful whisky with a noble history, discontinues allegedly because the malt is needed elsewhere. I'd have happily paid 50 % more, even twice the price. To me, far superior to most Glenmorangie single malts, the sharpest, most barleyish citrous whisky of them all. If the distillery reads this, PLEASE bring it back!

5th December 2015

Great blend whisky get

Best blend whisky on the market I have only got one bottle left please get it back .

20th November 2015

Where has it gone

Fantastic, but why is it not produced any more?

4th November 2015

My favourite.

I wondered why it had vanished from my Morrisons now I know. A sad loss! Can consumer pressure persuade them to bring it back??

4th November 2015

Best blended Scotch around.

This is and has been the best blended Scotch whisky available. It has been one of the most popular in Scotland for years. What "bean counter" made this decision?

4th November 2015

Simply the best

This is the best blended whisky i have ever experienced. just finished a bottle i had as a gift only to find it is no longer available. What a travesty

2nd October 2015


My favourite blend for many many years, then the supermarkets come into play, knock it out cheap, then discontinue it, same old story, now the Distillery have discontinued it, be brave, tell us WHY

24th September 2015

Their gain is our loss!

This travesty summed up with a line from the film "WHISKY GALORE"

" Ach, there's No-o-o-o Whisky.!

20th August 2015


Extra special blended Whisky

16th August 2015

what a travesty!

My favourite blend & always hard to source south of the border & now the idiots have withdrawn it! Not enough profit in it I guess - bar stewards!

9th August 2015

very very nice blend

I bought it some months ago in The Netherlands. But now not available anymore. When I went to France Normandie for a holiday I found myself three bottles of BNJ!! Wow I'm so happpy.

26th July 2015

We still have it in Australia

Bailie Nicol Jarvie Scotch Whisky 700mL $38.99 per bottle

Sits on the shelf next to the Glenmorangie original.

I have only started to drink it, so it might be time to stock up.
So I will have scotch for when the relatives come a calling.

24th July 2015

terry stokes

it is the smooooothist throught ticklin an experiance one can ever taste smell drink uuuu can exsperiance

15th July 2015

terrible sadness about loss of this wonderful blend

Like OUTSTANDINGLY BEST BLENDED WHISKY AROUND I can't understand why the best blend available is withdrawn. Have been buying this for the past 7 or 8 years, wonderful after coffee (straight, no ice or water) just so smooth and rich. Jim Murray would be tuning in his grave (if he was there!) WHY???

14th July 2015

Mr Jack

Best blended whisky I have ever tasted

26th June 2015


Bought this from Waitrose only because the label looked so cool. That was 6 years ago. Got a bit bored with my single malts tonight and finally cracked it open. It did not disappoint. This is a beautiful whisky with a long lasting taste of many flavours blending together like a favourite old Woody Allen film. Unlike Woody I understand this one is no longer around.

Brilliant mix of subtlety, flavour, strength and 'och, aye, the noo!"

Bailie Nicol Jarvie

excellent, the best whisky I have my favourite tipple.. I have a job finding it though...Mick.

4th March 2015

Sad times

So something that is amazing and in demand has been withdrawn!!! Marketing ploy? absence makes the heart go stronger?! Missed, loved and irreplaceable even when it was in stock!

14th February 2015

Bailie Nicol Jarvie

Untouchable. The greatest blended Whisky. Why discontinue this historic, magnificent blend? Neil D

13th February 2015

Best blended whisky ever.

Please will someone tell me with what I can replace this and where from? I am almost teetotal after not being able to find anything yet. And why does not Waitrose come clean and say that Glenmorangie has discontinued it?

12th February 2015

brian l notts

great we had three bottle when we were on hoilday in Edinburgh LOVE IT

28th January 2015

Mr. P. Underwood

Without dought the best whisky I have tasted.

25th January 2015

What should I drink now?

This is my favourite whiskey but I can't find it anywhere. Used to get it at Waitrose and Oddbins. What's happening?

25th January 2015


One marvellous whisky a smooth satisfying drink to relax with.

Possibly the best blended whisky I have had the pleasure of drinking.

24th January 2015


one of the best I have had

20th January 2015

Love it!

Smooth, sweet a hint of toffee? and fantastic value for the price.

31st December 2014

Jack T

I live in Sydney, and can buy it there in several liquor shops! My very favourite blend.

29th December 2014

Sad Times Glenmorangie

A great blended whisky with heavy influence from Glenmorangies 10 year old original, but with so much more complexity and flavour. I believe they have now pulled the plug and are no longer producing it. Sad times indeed

18th December 2014

Harry P Hall

I've loved the BNJ ever since discovering it some years ago. Just perfect. But now so difficult to find. Where, oh where can I buy it in England? Morrisons and Waitrose used to have it, but no longer. Why?

11th December 2014

cid jackson

my favourite whisky,but now difficult to find. Been pulled from Morrisons and Waitrose, unavailable on most webstores. Any clues as to why? anything to do with LVMH buying Glenmorangie? BNJ doesnt figure on their products list....

9th December 2014

mrcarl kukla

This is my favourite whisky it is not sold everywhere .delicate and smooth.for me .it is the best

4th December 2014


The Bailie reviewers on here all seem to refer to it as a "Malt". Read the label and you'll discover that it isn't a malt - it is a blended whisky - but with highest content of single malts - of any blended whisky in the world. Morrison's used to sell it at £16 a bottle when I first discovered it in 2006 - I am broken hearted that they have recently stopped selling it.

21st November 2014


A very beautiful and soft whisky. I love buying it for my husband. I am just wondering why I cannot find it in any supermarket. What happened !!!

3rd November 2014

Excellent Blend at an Excellent Price

Smooth - very well done.

26th October 2014

excellent choice

what a whiskey, its a sweet one but not to sweet with a distinctive taste and a quite a nice clear yellow colour well worth buying even though its a blend its my choice every time far nicer than most other bland blends

15th October 2014

What the doctor ordered

I love this whisky. I get through about one bottle a year of Scotch and always come back to this wonderful drink. It seems to be a well kept secret here in England, although a certain supermarket now stocks it. If you like Islay and Highland malts you will probably appreciate this delightful blend. I just hope if it becomes more poular that it doesn't become inferior (as sadly happened to a well known and cleverly marketed, formerly superior blend some years ago).

2nd October 2014

From France

Love the taste, the flavor... but it's cheaper here... Monkey Shoulder goes for 21 euros...BNJ goes for 23... it'd be silly to buy from you... Cheers

27th September 2014

Trev. J. Scotch whisky drinker for 50 years.

Bailie Nicol Jarvie is indeed one of rarest of its kind. Who would ever guess it was a blended whisky and not a single malt? I've visited quite a few distilleries in my time; the last one (4 years ago) was to the Highland Park Distillery on Orkney. It was quite a trip yet well worth the effort. Highland Park 12 year old is a good single malt, but in my opinion not quite as 'easy-going' as BNJ. Highland Park also produce a 15 year old malt which is the best single malt I've ever tasted. Sadly, you can't buy this in the UK because it's for export only (I don't know why). The point being; Bailie Nicol Jarvie is up there with the very best of the single malts, yet it's a blended whisky, which is quite astonishing and tastefully amazing.

23rd September 2014

Ian McGregor ( .........yet a 5th Generation Australian ! )

BNJ is smooth, consistent, tasty, and has body without malice ! BNJ is discounted here @$36 per & routinely wins blind-tasting tests against all similarly priced and many greater priced whiskies. I permanently tour Australia 4x4, from the Outback to the Alps to the Tropics and I would not happily do so with any other brand. If ingestion of BNJ also cured toxic stings and snakebites,it would be the perfect travelling companion !

22nd August 2014

Mr Dugald McKellar

This is simply my favourite whisky, and I have been researching for 77 years!

21st August 2014

One of the smoothest whiskys

An exceptional whisky, given the price even better.

14th August 2014

Phew, found it again

This is probably my favourite blended whisky (ahead of Black Bottle and Aldi's Highland Black) - not seen it in the supermarkets around me for a while but came across some in Waitrose on holiday in Norfolk. Ultra smooth, loads of flavour, shame the price is creeping up above £20.

13th August 2014

Affordable Quality

I had never heard of this whisky before I saw it on sale in Booths supermarket whilst on holiday in Windemere. Out of curiosity I bought a bottle, as it cost only a little over £20. Probably one of the best £20 I've ever spent! A gorgeous sweet and smooth whisky for the price, which meant I bought another bottle before returning home from my holiday in the Lake District. I've been home for just over a week and I had the final dram last night. This could turn out to be more expensive than I envisaged! My favourite whisky (and a very rare treat) is Middleton Rare and although the Bailie Nicol Jarvie is only half as good, it is a fifth of the price.

10th August 2014

The only blend that rivals the malts

I live in Scotland and found this in my local supermarket, discounted from the already low price. Tried it on a whim and I love it. It's easily my "drinking" whisky as it's so affordable, tasty, and smooth.

I like the range of malts, from growly to smooth; and this one very much shows its Speyside/Highland roots, it's SO smooth and delicious. And it tastes like a malt, the only malt that I've ever countered that does so. (I think Black Bottle, a good and worthy blend of the Islay malts, still doesn't match any of the Islay malts).

Even if you're rich enough you never need to consider the price difference it's really so good, and historic, it's worth getting at least one shot of. For anyone else you'd be crazy not to try it if you like your malts.

24th July 2014

A superb blend

Tried it for the first time during my holiday in Scotland. A superb blended whisky. I was really surprised. Full body, good value for money. More than that: wonderful value for meney.

30th June 2014

Just tried it for the first time

Usually I am a Isley malt whiskey drinker but this one took me by surprise very smooth and sweet I think this is the best blend I have ever tasted.

27th March 2014

You Must Try It

This is one of the best. Great value.

23rd February 2014

Royal Navy recommends

7 years ago a Royal Navy officer who knows his whiskeys told me about this. A wonderful whiskey. Very similar to a single malt. If you put it in a blind tasting against single malts few people could recognise it. Lovely toffee and caramel and hints of smoke and peat, very very drinkable.

18th February 2014

No e in Whisky for goodness sake ! how can you review it if you cant even spell it ?


22nd December 2013


Great "malt"at a blended price.

15th December 2013

The best £20 or under whiskey around. Simple.

The title of mine sums it up. The fact that this is only a few quid pricier than the awful Bells, Grouse, etc that populate supermarket shelves and a good £10-12 cheaper than original Glenmorangie is a joke - though a rather wonderful one! I picked a bottle up earlier this week in Morrisons... for £17. Yep, you read that right. Only one on the shelf mind..... or I could have ended up buying a few of them.
I find this nice, crisp and quite refreshing.

1st November 2013

Delicious gem

I took a chance on this one, without any prior knowledge. That was three years ago and I've always got at least two bottles in my stock since. a stunning, light yet complex dram, full of character and at £20, a real bargain. Although the price has been steadily creeping up these past couple years. Get in there now, while the price and quality are still there. x

20th June 2013

Mike Kenworthy

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.

11th March 2013

A superb Whisky

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.

23rd January 2013

A gentle dram

Almost as good as a 10 year old Glenmorangie. Hard to beat at any price.

17th December 2012

A very nice blend

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.
