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 was originally created to make perfect whisky cocktails and has been getting in the mix ever since.
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.
Get a lovely whiff of zesty orange, vanilla, honey and spiced oak before tasting mellow vanilla with spicy hints as you enjoy a cheeky sip.
Never one to stay quiet at a party, the smooth, malty and fruity character is bold enough to stand out in a drink but balanced enough not to take it over.
Monkey shoulder has richness and vibrancy that combines with fruity aromas and mellow vanilla notes, making it perfect for mixing.
