Proof66 Notes

Bell's blended scotch is blended and bottled by the Arthur Bell and Sons company (itself owned by Diageo). As reported by Whiskey.com, the slogan "Afore ye go" became associated with Bell's scotch in 1925 where the company sent bottles of scotch to troops departing for World War I.

Bell's Original Blended Scotch is a blend of single malt and grain whisky. They say the key malt is a highland malt style (low in peat with fruity notes) from the Blair Athol Distillery (also owned by Diageo). It is the bestselling blended scotch in the United Kingdom.

To come straight to the point, Bell's Original is cheap bottom shelf Blended Scotch that shouldn’t be tried neat. The nose is barely there at all. Indistinctly sweet and distant floral notes are suppressed by biting alcohol burn. There is a faint hint of smoke and weak bitter sweetness on the palate, but the industrial grain alcohol dominates it all. It's needless to speak of the finish. The rough and metallic aftertaste underscores that Bell's is only useful as mix and stir whisky (although there are much better options!), or to fuel your engine when you have run out of petrol. RATING: 1.5/5.0 ≙ 50 pts
