J&B Rare a back bar favourite blended Scotch whisky has long been a go-to for whisky fans across the globe, particularly in Europe. Following the end of Prohibition in the USA, it was created by Justerini & Brooks to appeal to the American palate, hitting shelves in 1933. The blend itself is made with a combination of 42 Scotch single malts and grains, with a generous portion of Speyside whisky at the expression’s core. Perfect for use in mixed drinks and cocktails.
Nose: A medium-bodied nose with hints of walnut, toffee apples, cedarwood, orange zest and malt.
Palate: Balanced and rounded nose – lots of fruit here, with a little toffee and malt.
Finish: J&B Rare has a medium finish with oak and cinnamon.
