Arthur Bell was one of whisky's pioneers. Contrary to his extremely cautious, modest, highly moral character he recognised early the potential of blending malt and grain whisky: “Several fine whiskies blended together please the palates of a greater number of people than one whisky unmixed", he wrote enthusiastically. This confidence led him to appoint a London agent for his brands as early as 1863 - the first whisky firm to do so.
There are 35 constituent whiskies in Bell's blend today, including Oban, Inchgower, Caol Ila, Dufftown, Glenkinchie and Cameron Bridge, with Malt whisky from the Blair Athol distillery in Pitlochry forming the nutty, spicy heart of the final blend. Every whisky in the blend, both malt and grain, is aged for at least 8 years. (The legal minimum age for Scotch whisky is 3 years, thus Bells offers exceptional value).
Today Bells is a bartenders standard for mixing any drink that involves Scotch, and maintains its market position as one of the top five selling whiskies of the world. Bells allows for versatility.
Other reviews... The soapiness on the nose and late finish are compensated for by a surprisingly rich malt, biscuity backbone. Rating: 83 40% Alc./Vol. - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2006.size>
Nose: Briney. Fresh earth. Arousing. Palate: Grassy, juicy. Malty, firm, chewy. Shortbread. Cookies. Lemon marmalade. A lot happening. Finish: Distinctly oily aromatics coming through. Long, peppery, dry. Comment: Assertive but rounded. A wonderfully satisfying whisky. Enormously improved since its (and my) younger days.
