J & B Rare Blended Scotch
J & B // Scotland
J & B began as most Scotch blends did--through wine & spirits merchants. J & B stand for the names "Justerini", an Italian who had followed his heart to London and subsequently became a wine & liquor merchant and "Brooks" who purchased the business a few generations later. The blend as we know it today came about in the 1930's, just after the end of Prohibition.
Peated BlendA mix of grains and malted barley. From more than one distillery. Dried with peat.
"The nose is full of malt, lemon, and honey. The flavor continues with more lemon and honey with some gentle wood spices and nuts. It is not a terribly complex whisky, but the brightness and pleasantness are reason enough to drink (and overlook its awful Discoball mascot). "
