    Have come to love this blend over recent times. used to be somewhat harsh. The session whisky my dad drank in the sixties. But today's blend reminds me of Bell's Islander, a brand I can't understand why it was withdrawn. Now the blend is mellow, with a highland base, and an overtone of subtle island malt. I love the Islay base of Black Bottle, but I have come to love Bell's mellow taste too. Highly recommended. get into it, lest it too disappear.

    Along with Grant's, Teacher's and Famous Grouse, Bells is one of the best standard blends. You will not find better for the money it's just a matter of taste which is your favourite.

    Good, reliable blend for everyday sipping. More sherrish than Famous Grouse, IMHO freshier (more peat/smoke), fruitier and with fuller body than a majority of its competitors in this price-range.

    Im a major fan of the islay single malts but some of the critical reviews on here are way off. Ignore the snobs. Bells is a great tasting blend probably my favioret blended whiskey.

    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.

    i dont confess to be a conesir of whiskey nor a good speller but have tried a few decent malts and i have to say i was surprised at the smoothness enicially followed by a pleasant peatyness from such a cheap cheerful bottle, i wouldn't reccommand but it is good to know the lower end has come on leaps and bounds over the years and long may it continue

    Trying some now, really not that bad, used to hate the stuff a few years ago, would take it over something like JWR, but still not a patch on Teachers, White Horse or Black Bottle which are the same price, But its fine with a splash of water.. if you want a nondescript non offensive tipple on a warm summers eve.
