vol. 43% - 75 cl.
Rare Bell's 5 years old whisky from around 1960 - 1970 - 75 cl. - Vol. 43%
The accepted practice at the time was to use young, immature whiskies for blending. Bell, however, was adamant that only mature whiskies be used in the blend - a decision that earned him a reputation not only as a specialist blender, but as a man of vision with the highest regard for quality.
It was only in 1925 that "Afore ye go" was registered as the official company slogan. During the First World War, the Bell family would have a few cases of Bell's Extra Special Old Scotch Whisky sent down to the docks to be distributed among the troops going off to the Western Front with the idea being that they should have a wee dram, …"afore ye go". Bell's Extra Special Blended Scotch Whisky is the UK's most popular blend.

Born in 1865, George V served as king of the United Kingdom from 1910 to 1936.
King George V of Great Britain was born on June 3, 1865, the unpromising second son of Edward VII. Initially, he sought a career in the British Navy, but the untimely death of his brother, Albert, placed him on the throne. He became king in 1910 and played an active role supporting the troops during World War I. Though lackluster in personality, he won the loyalty of the middle class and many in Great Britain with his steadfast dedication to his country.
