Bell’s Original Blended Scotch Tasting Notes

Bell’s, a blended Scotch whisky that has been around from as early as 1825, is a well-known brand that is found in most pubs, bars and restaurants. After finding a bottle on my recent move, it would be unprofessional of me to let it sit there and not be sampled! So here goes – on the nose there’s a light nutty aroma with fresh fruit coming through as well. On the palate, a rather smooth oak taste lingers with a slight nut and spice coming through. A warm tingle after-taste follows which leaves a long flavour (which will be making you want to finish your dram rather quickly!) and at 40 % it’s not too strong and overpowering as some blended whiskies can be.

 

Bell's Blended Whisky

Something I never knew was that Bell’s is the only major blended whisky to be aged for 8 years, so you’ll be drinking something a little bit special! Its steeped in history that includes Arthur J Bell and his two sons Arthur Kimmond Bell and Robert Duff Bell. His sons are responsible for expanding the product overseas and to trademark the now familiar ‘Arthur Bell & Sons’ and their motto ‘Afore ye go’.  

Its rrp is around £15-17 so a bottle can be easily picked up in most places, and as mentioned, can be found in nearly all pubs, bars and restaurants. Other brands in that price range include Teachers, Famous Grouse and Grants.

I would recommend Bell’s Original to the whisky novices as it’s a good introduction to blended whisky. Give it a try!

  1. Regrettably there might be simply no speedy repairs on how to remove double
    jaw. There’s no getting away from the fact that jogging to lose weight worked
    for me but when I combined it with other methods I really did get
    the results I was initially looking for. Start off slowly
    and set tiny objectives for oneself. Just remember to
    keep your breathing steady and your posture correct when doing your double chin exercises.
    Though you can have this consequence if you happen to go overboard.

  2. There are over 50 important facial muscles, but a handful of enjoyable exercises can work them
    into a state of improved tone and looks. Take a trusted friend shopping and try
    on all sorts of styles and colors until you find which ones are most flattering on you.
    s great in that it works the majority of the muscles in your body without
    placing excessive pressure on your body. If you live in a hilly
    place, you can increase the aerobic value by increasing your speed
    only slightly. This visually monitors the patients heart and the way
    it moves when it is stressed by exercise.
