    Poured in a glass and was put off by the lightness on the eyes. On the palate made up for anything I thought would be lacking.

    Not sure why the the rave reviews. A little bit like white spirit: not enough aging and flavour. Inoffensive though. 2.5 stars

    Absolutely stunning for the price. Sweet, with a touch of smoke & peat, J&B has been a staple on my bar for years. Without doubt it is one of the classic blends along with Johnnie Walker and Ballantines. The only negative is the colour, I imagine the lightness puts some off, but it doesn’t bother me in the slightest! Such a shame that this is rarely available in bars in the UK, we seem to prefer to serve lesser blended scotch, but when you travel around the world, this will feature in the selection of any bar worth it’s salt.

    What a taste

    My grandmother has had this in her cabinet since I can remember. The yellow label is just one of those childhood memories (visually of course). Until now! 39-years-old and a traveled Chef who has tasted, sipped, enjoyed as well as simply guzzled my fair share of pleasant to rot-gut liquors. I finally tasted her J&B with quite the satisfied outcome. Then I slowly poured myself two more! My conscience slapped me thinking maybe this is some high dollar hooch! Pleasantly surprised to find that it isn't even close to the price of Murray McDavid or even Macallan 18. Fantastically smooth and rich, without me having to be personally! Thumbs up all around.

    Have been a J&B man a long time, as Dean Martin was. Puts JW to shame. Great taste, great price.

    I have it is a pleasant drink. It is not exactly RARE considering how freely available it is?

    Tried it on a plane and loved it. Tasted like expensive, world-class whisky. So surprised to see it so cheap! Definitely buying a bottle or two.

    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!
