Whisky Reviews for Bell's 05-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 72.67 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Some low ratings for this one but no notes so lets put that right.
    The label states :-
    'A blend of the finest Glenlivet whiskies'

    A light nose on cereal and grapefruit mainly with green leaves in the mix along with pencil shavings.
    It is sweet and a little rough with the grain element to the fore.
    I also get instant mashed potato with a little pancake mix which knocks the edge off the sweetness.
    A difficult one to score, it is `light` so Bell`s were not lying were they?
