What is the best J&B Whisky, price-quality wise on 2020?

Are you familiar with J&B Whisky? Well of course you are, all of us who’ve gone to a party or to a club know a good J&B Whisky.

It’s cheap, can be mixed with other spirits, it’s a good whisky but, maybe it can leave you a bit hung over, like my granddad used to say, it’s great on a budget!

I’ll tell you a bit about it, J&B is a blended scotch whisky or scotch malt whisky. If you wish to know more about blended whisky, then visit our article on the types of whisky.

Product of an association between an Italian master brewer, Giacamo Justerini, along with Alfred Brooks, whisky lover.

It was, however, Andrew Usher, an Edinburg trader, who after collaborating with them, took the brand to what it is today.

Together they created the J&B Club Blend, one of the oldest scotch malt whiskies brewers.

J&B Rare Blended Scotch Whisky

The J&B Rare Blended Scotch Whisky is a blend of at least 42 malt and grain whiskies, the J&B Rare has no age statement on the label, that means it has spent less than three years aging on barrels.

J&B Rare Blended Scotch Whisky

It’s a smooth whisky, I assure you it flows well. However, on the palate a very strong alcohol taste is felt, after a few shots it goes unnoticed.

With a caramel apple and vanilla flavor. It stands out for being sweet, for this, it is perfect for making whisky cocktails.

Like J&B Ginger Ale Twist, J&B cola Twist (one of my personal favorites) and J&B Rare Whisky Sour, it is very good for meetings or even in the summer, it can be very refreshing.

The main disadvantage of this whisky is that it could leave a bad hangover. If you like pure whisky, I don’t recommend it.

Take a long glass, add a bit of ice or cold water, it helps to improve the taste. It usually comes in 200 ml, 700 ml, or 1000 ml presentations.

Really recommended if you’re on a budget and you want to drink a good whisky cocktail or share with some friends

Pros

  • Presentation: three different ones to choose from.
  • Cocktail base: great if you want to make up some cocktail.
  • Price: you could save up some bucks.

Cons

  • The day after. Some say it leaves a bad hangover.
  • Too much like alcohol.
