It's the "Bailie Nicol Jarvie" from the Glenmorangie 'stable'. Only £13+ from my local Oddbins.
Supposedly, the sole grain is North British (whatever that is) and there's 60% malt content. These malts, which unsurprisingly include Glenmorangie, are between 8 and 17 years old - and there are only 8 of them
David Broom (in "Handbook of Whisky") gives BNJ a maximum score of 5/5. Jim Murray (in "Whisky Bible") gives the blend 93/100.
I can't wait to try it.
PS: From how you describe the BNJ vs the C' Loch (There's a complexity and richness to it, and the flavour seems "alive" vs "fairly forgettable") I'll have to be safely seated when I try the BNJ for the first time - my senses are likely to be positively overwhelmed .
