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

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Golden yellow.
  • Aroma: Marmalade, Crema Catalana, cocoa and malt, vanilla and a sprinkling of winter spice (nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon) alongside a mouth-watering hint of aniseed.
  • 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.

Description

Monkey Shoulder 700ml Blended Malt Whisky

The Monkey Shoulder is a mix of three different Single Malts – Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie. Fist of all, the term “Monkey Shoulder” harks back to our whisky making heritage. It’s a reference to a condition that maltmen. Sometimes, they picked up while working long shifts, turning the barley by hand.

 

However, it had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey’s. So, they nicknamed it ‘monkey shoulder’. Whilst our maltmen are among the few who still turn the barley manually, working conditions have changed which means this injury has been consigned to the past.

 

Today, the name Monkey Shoulder lives on as an affectionate tribute, to honour the hard graft of all the maltmen past and present. Cheers! A superb blended malt whisky from William Grant, made with single malts from the company’s three neighbouring distilleries in Dufftown- Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie.

 

The result is a smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch which works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails. It’s a whisky that loves company and shows its versatility in cocktails.
