The blending of whiskies is a practise aimed at creating a product of broad appeal. It was for this purpose that Justerni & Brooks developed their now famous J&B Rare for the American market. By using a high proportion of the softer Lowland malts, J&B achieved a classic in its genre which remains one of the biggest selling whiskies on the American market.

Over 40 different malt and grain whiskies are matured and then married together for an unusually long time. Distilled, blended & bottled in Scotland.

Tasting note: [2012 bottling] Pale straw colour. Nosing reveals toasty cereals, vanilla wafer and a whisper of peat. Aeration releases more cocoa. Light to medium bodied. Exhibits a lovely malt/grain balance with gentle spices and a fluff of peat adding depth at mid palate. Finishes crisp, clean and beautifully dry with good persistence. In its latest incarnation, one of the best value blends on the market.
