Monkey Shoulder Scotch – A superb 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 that works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels).
It has banana, honey, pears, and allspice notes on the nose. The palate is mellow with vanilla, nutmeg, citrus hints, and generic fruit. Its finish is dry with a short burst of menthol.
It was originally created to make perfect whisky cocktails and has been getting in the mix ever since.
