Nose: Kaboom - that's fresh. Loads of citrus fruits and barley. Maybe just a hint of some smoke.

Taste: Fresh and fruity with some real zing. Great interaction between the grain and barley. There's some vanilla coming through as well. This is a real mouthful.

Finish: Just bursting with those citrus fruits and some nice spice intermingling as well. There's some real sweetness on the finish as well. I detect vanilla and butterscotch. Actually just slightly too sweet for me on the end.

Balance: There citrus everywhere in this sharp and well blended dram. The slightly sweet finish doesn't quite sit right though.

This is a most enjoyable blended whisky that offers good value - never a bad thing! An excellent whisky and more of this will be finding it into my cabinet.

Nice review. Great whisky. It is nice that you can go out and buy BNJ at your local store. It isn't sold in the US, and where I live it is a crime to accept spirits through the mail, so when I want BNJ it requires somebody to cross an ocean to bring it to me.
