Bells Vatted Malt

Postby BruceCrichton » Wed Oct 29, 2003 10:14 pm

I hear that there is a new Bell's vatted malt coming out. Has anybody tasted it yet?

Is it already out?

Any idea how much it costs?

It will apparently be called Bell's Special Reserve, and will be for the off-trade market.

No real word on its style or taste yet, other than that it will have a high proportion of Diageo malts in its makeup.

It is apparently being launched as a marketing initiative linked to the popularity of the regular Bell's blend, but intended to persuade the drinker towards malts.

I guess it is therefore reasonable to assume that the price will not be too much higher than the standard Bell's 8-year-old blend.
