Whisky Reviews for J&B Rare

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 65.44 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 55 points Administrator

    J&B Rare is a low-cost Blended Scotch of rather insufficient quality. The nose is sweet and fruity with a pervasive and unpleasantly dominating toffee note. Although said to be slightly peaty, I couldn't detect that. Drunk neat, the youthful harshness of the spirit turns into indistinct and sweet spiciness. There is a metallic aftertaste, and the grain whisky is doing an awful lot of work in this blend. Mixed with Coca Cola, the dominant toffee does not harmonize with the sweetness of the drink. To sum up, I did not enjoy J&B Rare - neither neat, nor as a mixer.

  4. Andytka3 scored this whisky 63 points Connoisseur

    N- Honey and citrusy, nutty, dry wood with a little heat. P- Grainy with lots of sweetness on the palate, peppery comes and go.
    Minimum wood influence, with coffee bean and light earthy smokes.
    Astringent, otherwise balance and gentle on mouthfeel.

    F- Light and simple, oak spiciness remains.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  6. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Not the screamer in its price range, but you can if necessary be considered as a nightcap for beer.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, nutty-sweet, cereal ... not bad at all, unfortunately there is still a youthful and brittle solvent note on the half nostril
    • Taste
      I've been sucking on it for a while, there's chocolate, spicy, bitter ... benevolent association: cheap brandy beans with pepper
    • Finish
      it stays bitter and (slightly) hot for a while

  7. Matt80 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Strong vanilla,woody, custard, green apple, banana, porridge. It becomes creamier with a drop of water.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla, wood spice, weak mouth feel, wood smoke. It gets a little spicier with a drop of water.
    • Finish
      Medium, spicy, creamy

  9. Ivynor scored this whisky 45 points Expert Senior

    An appalling product at a distressing price.
    • Nose
      A nice nose of alcohol to burn
    • Taste
      Iodé, very present alcohol. A note of lemon, very very slightly woody. Grain
    • Finish
      Final humus, undergrowth, with the iodine more present. The whole burns and dries.

  10. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Apple nose, grain. Mouth grain, grape. Basic Blend.
