    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.

    I have tasted many scotches and have worked in the industry. This is the scotch I always ask for.

    This stuff saved my life!

    I just love this drink,Palate: Sweet, light bodied, very faint peat,basically very smooth.Great to have it on the rocks or just neat.

    drink it on the rocks( when rested for a good 10 mins) or use it as a mixer. This is a classic case of a movie making a scotch seem better than it is. Next thing you know.. everyone will love Cutty Sark as it was in Goodfellas. lol

    Nose: Faint peat and a little marsh salt air. Palate: Sweet, light bodied, very faint peat, cinammon, more candied sweetness, like a couple of packets of Sugar Twin. Finish: A little pepper, slight salty tang, a little tingle of the nostrils as the peat disappears very quickly leaving a pepper and sweetness on the palate. This blended scotch flavor disappeared from the palate as quickly as it appearred.

    This proves to be exceptional value for money. Sure I agree that there are many better for a higher price. However at this range it offers as an excellent choice for a mid week tipple.

    Watery and characterless more or less sums this one up. Overrated fire water!Good scotch has complexity, smoothness and delivers uplifting satisfaction. After forcing myself to drink this one, I left scratching my head and holding my throat.

    All people that have rated this Whisky "good" have obviously never tried a quality one. Drunken straight this J
