BNJ

What they say:

A very popular blend from Glenmorangie. Bailie Nicol Jarvie is a sweet, delicate blend with Highland, Islay and Speyside whisky, blended with top quality grain whisky.

What I say:

Blended whisky typically consists of a reasonable amount of Single malt scotch, bestowing the flavour and character; and grain whisky to bulk out the volume and alcohol content making the blend much cheaper to produce. BNJ is a particularly old and well established blend and is though to consist of Islay, Highland [possibly Glenmorangie from where it is produced?] and Speyside malts blended with Ayrshire grain whisky [Girvan distillery]. This blend boasts the highest malt content of a blend [around 60% malts].
