05-11-2010, 03:33 AM
Hello there! My name is Cecilia and Iím new in this forum. I got here through google. I was looking for information about a bottle of Bellís Scotch whisky. I have found this at my grandmotherís house and I have absolute no clue how old is this whisky, ďveryĒ old for sure. The bottle is unopened with the security label intact. I also have the box, which shows a little wear as the label itself due to the years.
I would like to know how old is it, and approximately how much it worth. I have taken a couple of pics that Iím including at this time.
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advanced. Best regards!
I may be able to have it dated for you - will check. I might need better photos, will let you know! As for value, try mctears.com or bonhams.com :D
This Bell's decanter has been dated to be from the late 1960s. :D

One of the industries most recognized authorities is John Rose. He is featured in each issue of WHISKY MAGAZINE. You can write him through the magazine. Normally, when Bell's shows no age statement on the bottle, it is usually an 8-Year-Old whisky inside. Remember, once whisky is bottled, it stops aging. When bottled at 8 years old, it will always be an 8-year-old.
Also, here's a bit more information on this particular Bell's decanter....You can't see it in the photos posted here, but this decanter was made by Wade, this means that it was produced in the late 1960s. (Spode and Royal Doulton produced them before this). This decanter is from the original standard series, known as the 'Brown and Gold' series, and these were produced up until 1988 when they were replaced with the 'Tan and Cream' series. ;)
