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 confirm 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 dominance of toffee doesn't harmonize with the sweetness of the mixed drink. Altogether, I can't recommend J&B Rare - neither neat, nor as a mixer.
