A nice blended malt whisky from William Grant, made with single malts from three famous Speyside distilleries. The result is a smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch which works well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels).

Description

Monkey Shoulder is a nice blended malt whisky from William Grant. Made with single malts from three famous Speyside distilleries. They brought a good news – A smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch whisky came out. Neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels) are good choices.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Elegant and stylish. Hints of marmalade, Crema Catalana, cocoa and malt. Plenty of vanilla and a sprinkling of winter spice hints (nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon) alongside a mouth-watering aniseed scents.

Palate: Very malty, creamy delivery with a suggestion of berry fruit. Juicy toasted barley, cloves and butterscotch. Manuka honey, hot-buttered-toast and dried apricot develop.

Finish: Medium length, spicy oak and a hint of peppermint on the tail.

According to the Monkey Shoulder website: “Some say it tastes just like riding bareback on the wild moors of Scotland, with a flame haired maiden on Christmas morning.  Others agree it tastes like 007 wearing a tuxedo wetsuit.”

What our whisky loving friends have said about Monkey Shoulder

Quote 1 “Very much liked this malt as it was not as harsh as most malts. A neighbour friend introduced me to it and it will be my favourite for a long time.”

Quote 2 “A blend this good should be on your top shelf. Made from a blend of a 3 single malts -Balvenie, Glenfidich and Kininvie makes this a Speyside charm. Taste more of the malty notes than any other blended Scotch. Honey, vanilla, toffee and wood make this a cracker of a dram!”

Quote 3  “Smooth, creamy, love the malt taste.”
