    An absolute classic, and much like Johnnie Walker Black and Ballantines, J&B is always a welcome friend wherever you find yourself in the world. Predominately for the export market it seems, it’s a shame you don’t see it more often in pubs/bars here because in Spain it is in every bar you walk into! I’ve always thought the light colour of J&B in the glass as not great on the eye, but don’t let that put you off. What you get is a nice sweet whiskey, with a hint of smoke and a pleasant fruitiness to it.

    Undeniably a fantastic blend and a fantastic blend but if you like this you should give Teachers a try it's cheaper and has more malty crunch! They're very similar in many ways.

    ABSOLUTELY the cheapest scotch I will drink. Perfect flavor for a blended. Always enjoy on the rocks or with soda... No other way.

    J&an has been my choice for about 40 years. Started with a lemon slice at first to cut taste. Now just over rocks. Love it. However not readily available in southern states and Florida. Usually have to drink Dewars which is usually available. Not really a fan of single malts. Would get them as gifts and would give them away.

    From single malts to blended, for twenty years this stuff is my constant whiskey in the house. Either over two cubes or with Rochester ginger ale is how i enjoy it.

    I've been buying scotch lately in contrast to bourbon, got some Johnny Walker, red, black, double, and even some gold, they seemed ok, but put a hole in the pocket, wanted something affordable and picked up some J&B, boy was I surprised, you can taste the speysides and even a fruitiness I like, with even a wisp of smoke...after drinking Johnny black this is a little better then the red to me and almost as good as the black if not equal due to the difference in blend and price!

    Love it, in rotation with Jameson & Bushmills. Hugging 70 years young.

    Clean and delicious, for a blend can't be beat for the price or quite a bit more. Very smooth with just a bit of peat, first class on the rocks.

    This is almost too good for the price, for a blended I agree with the other reviewer about a blind taste test. I believe this would beat anything you could put in front of me $60 or less in a blind tasting!

    Truly value for money. Slightly complex and you can really feel it in your mouth. I would prefer it over other brands of the same range. I'm highly satisfied for the nature of this dram..

    I've been drinking J&B rare for over 40 years, loved every minute of it, until earlier this year, Jan/Feb 2016, I bought a bottle and thought the recipe must have been changed, it tasted so very sweet, almost too sweet to drink, certainly too sweet to really enjoy!

    It is not all that rare, as I have found it almost everywhere. Still, goes done well with ice and soda.

    Don't let these snobby reviews prevent you from giving this old girl a whirl. It's light, clean and good value. I'm closer to 60 than 50 and have been drinking it for 30 years. It's been consistently enjoyable.

    For a blend this is remarkably smooth and tasty. OK your not getting the complexity of 15/21/25yo single malts or blended malts but for the price it's very good, if you don't agree you've got a bad bottle.

    I am not a regular J&B SCOTCH drinker ,but it always was an acceptable scotch over many years,however, the bottle I bought recently is totally unacceptable,in fact I refuse to drink another drop.I do not know the reason for this dramatic drop in quality of the product,but life is too short to drink it .there are many other brands that are far superior.
