I recently purchased a bottle of whisky from eBay.
It's my first blended whisky as I normally only drink single malts.
Out of curiousity I want to try some old blended whisky because I heard from several sources that those are a lot better tasting than the current bottlings.
I was hoping that someone here might know something more about the following bottle of Scotch:
Bell’s Old scotch whisky , "extra special" 0.75 liter 43° %
great for cleaning windows with
I was hoping to be at least making some sauce out of it
looks 1960's to 1970's to me, 43% means mainland europe stength. tax strip will tell you which country...
That will be Italy
I'll be reporting back here when the bottle has arrived from Italy[/quote]
After a long trip through Europe the Bottle of Bell's finally arrived at my place this weekend together with some whisky-enthousiasts who came to my house for a nice informal N&T.
The Bell was opened rather soon and compared to some also quite old blends (A 5 year old Cluny from the late seventees and a Crafword from around 1973)
All three were great compared to the modern blends... Way more maltwhisky involved in making this stuff than nowadays and a much better interplay between malt and (very good) grainwhisky
The Bell needed a little time to get some fresh air into the bottle after holding it's breath for over 35 years. And than it revealed a great nose and an excellent taste. Lots and lots of sherrycasked malts did go into this blend that will beat several malts in any contest.
