in 1851 Arthur Bell Bell's Original, the standard expression of the Bell's brand founded by Bell's brand, consists of a blend of approximately 40 malt and grain whiskeys. At the center of the Bell's Original blend Blair Athol while malt is included, Dufftown, Glenkinchie and Caol Ila and other prominent whiskeys in the blend.
Bell's, one of Scotland's best-selling blends in the 1970s, is now a very popular brand, especially in England.
Bell’s Original (İskoç Harman, %40 abv)
Nose: Sugary flavors such as vanilla, caramel, honey and apple are accompanied by grain and light synthetic (yellow tube glue and gauze) scents. With the first sniff, the distinct youthful smell of alcohol softened with the airing of the glass. But I can say that sweet aromas disappear with this airing.
Palate: The caramel, apple and vanilla flavors that I take on the nose are also present on the palate, albeit a little. Spices and grain character are dominant. Salted nuts and very light oak. Although I cannot say that it is a creamy whiskey, its fullness on the palate is surprisingly successful in this price range.
Finish: A short, warm, dry and very slightly salty finish. Sweet aromas feel very light.
Comment: In general, I can say that Bell's Original is a good price-performance blend. Despite its volatile aromas, grain-dominant character on the palate and a short finish, it is a successful expression for its price range, with its easy-drinking and full-bodied structure.
