If you read my previous post about this cask you know how it ended. If you don’t, I will try to be brief about it, I fucked spoiled two awesome Laphroaig 10 years old Cask Strength by ageing it a bit more of what it was needed.

So, now that you know where we came from, keep reading about what I did.

Bell's 8 years old Tasting note

By Miguel in Tasting , Bell's
76
Bell's 8 year
Up to 40 of the finest malt and grain whiskies are matured in oak casks before being skilfully blended to give Bells its rich nose, warm taste and lingering finish.

Established in 1825 by Arthur Bell. Bells Scotch Whisky is a finely balanced malty, fruity and rich whisky from Blair Atholl, Scotland.

Famed for its distinctively mellow character and uniquely complex taste, Bell's Scotch Whisky has earned its reputation as one of lifes truest indulgences.

This dram has a white-like color.

Nose (76): inexistent. sweet, honey, vanilla, wood. First nosing data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.

Palate (76): . sweet, wood, honey, peaches and vanilla. Bouquet data is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.

Finish (76): no finish. wood. Finish length is innacurate as the previous tasting sheet lacked of this field.

So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Bell's 8 year with 76 points over 100.
