Whisky review > Bailie Nicol Jarvie

The Bailie Nicol Jarvie, or BNJ as it is affectionately known, is a blended whisky that was first produced in the Scottish town of Leith in the 1890s. It takes its name from a character in Sir Walter Scott's novel Rob Roy. BNJ contains one of the highest percentage of single malt of any blend (60%). Blended whiskies usually contain many more whiskies (between 20-40 single malt and grain whiskies combined), with the grain whisky having the higher proportion of the volume (60-70%).
