    I started drinking Bell's scotch whisky in 1977 and it's still the best economical whisky I have tasted.

    Not bad at all. Mixes well and is okay to sip.

    Terrible blended whiskey, which has got worse over the years. It is very raw with a lingering after taste.

    Just opened a new bottle, I will drink anything wet but Bells is disgusting, horrible, chemical smoke flavour. Won't buy again.

    It's affordable and taste good. I can drink this anytime, sweet, spicy and a little bit dry.

    Tried this Whiskey again ( last time I tried was the mid 90s) after having experienced the Jds, Buffalo trace and Jim beam I thought I’d probably like it now. Hell no! It doesn’t taste good at all and my partner opposite me in the pub even laughed at my grimace and disgust. I’d use it mixed heavily with coke if I had to drink this against my will.

    I don't usually like whiskey. But Bell's surprised me with a lovely aftertaste reminiscent of a good ale. Wish I could get it in Oregon.

    This the perfect Scotch to mix with dry ginger ale and a few ice cubes. Don't waste your money on anything else, Bell's is best!

    I have noticed a change in bells whiskey it taste more like whyite mackay with a germaline taste. Won’t be buying again I loved bells but no more I thought it was a bad batch so bought different brand but no just the same a month later. I have given it a one because I can’t go below sorry.

    An everyday blended scotch. Sweet and spicy notes, plus some smoke in the finnish. What you pay is what You get. This whisky is not for tasting nights, more like for poker nights with drinking buddies.

    I was a bit of a snob about whiskey, preferring the West coast peaty single malts. However, for one third/one half of the cost I have the peaty flavour. I do not need to spend a fortune on a Talisker etc.

    I was looking for Bells Scotch in the United States. I also tried Duty Free at many airports since I’m a Flight Attendant. No such luck. I finally did some research online and found this company that would ship to the United States. I found this scotch to be very good and a great price for an evening sip. It was shipped in a timely manner and was able to give it to a friend for Christmas. I’m pleased with The Whisky Exchange and it service as promised. I will be ordering again in the near future.

    For its price you can’t go wrong. Traditionally a mixer. It’s not as sweet as the other blends, a bit more earthy. I love it with ice and soda water which brings out a surprising smoky element. It is a bit spirity but it isn’t a single malt so unfair to compare. Not bad at all, if neat add a touch of water which I find helps

    I tried this when I was 16 and I remember thinking, "so this is whisky, it's disgusting" since then it's got steadily worse and people even prefer asda own brand whisky to it nowadays. I hear nobody in Scotland drinks it and it only sells at all due to tv advertising and mass marketing. Grouse is pretty bad but even that is preferable to this rubbish. If your going for the cheap end of the market, go for ballantines or whyte and mackay 13 year old. This stuff is good for dressing wounds and de greasing engines! Luckily, people are starting to avoid it. One for alcoholics only who think white cider is drinkable.

    I have partaken many whiskeys. I prefer rye bourbon. But do love my slightly peat scotch almost as much. Bell's , IMHO is a blend made to satisfy those who do not wish to part with money for a satisfying and easy to drink slightly peaty scotch. It is raw. Rough. Tries to be more than its price can afford. It will never be a smooth drink. It cannot as the mix seems to try to hide some awful flavoured cheap base that is part of the blend. It is a rough masking like a cheap wine tries to hide it's additives. The good is its price and the fact it tries to give that smoky note to an audience that will not pay more for the truly masterful blends. The blend does what it sets out to do. Introduce you to the peaty perfection that some scotch's have in abundance.

    Lovely mixed but I like this on its own as well. Whereas Grouse is very sherrish, this has a hint of smoke, spice, fruit and sweetness. I had written this whisky off but I will be buying it again. Good to have a trusty blend to have with my malts
