    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.

    I was introduced to this by one of my friends whom I consider as an expert in whiskies. And J&B rare an Ballantines finest by have remained my companions for long now.

    I have found memories when my grandmother used to sip J&B in the evening outside in her backyard. I too now enjoy doing the same thing a couple of times a week. This is an excellent blended scotch whiskey....very smooth with a flavorful distinct taste. I prefer it mixed with a little water on ice.

    I would like to give some of you snobby reviewers a blind taste test. J&B Rare will stand up to any blended Scotch Whisky. Single malts are better, for sure, but if you want to pay $90 a bottle and more...go right ahead. J&B was THE SCOTCH to drink in this country in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. I just paid $24 for a bottle and it is very smooth and flavorful...neat, or with a little ice. I''ll buy it again.

    A true classic. When the mood and/or the wallet directs me to something other than a single malt, this blend fits the bill quite nicely. Crisp, refreshing and clean.

    I've been drinking Rare J&B 8yr old for over 40yrs, and loved every minute of it. I have also tried the 10yr ld and the 12yr old and my favorite was the 10 yr old Rare J&B blend!

    This is a good blend, it's basically like a better, more refined version of Bells.
