We have had problems with the last two enzymes purchased from Sigma: Bgl

I have been using MluI from Sigma, and it seems to work ok.  The
odd thing is that Sigma lists it as a dam-blocked enzyme, Promega
and NEB both don't.  And NEB indicates that heat incativates at 65 deg.C
for 20 min, and Promega only partial inactivation.  I don't know if 
I'd reccommend using MluI.
