About Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch:
Monkey Shoulder is a ‘blended malt whisky’, marrying together 3 of Speyside’s finest single malt whiskies first aged in first fill bourbon casks before being married together in a Tun. Our Master Blender set out to create a liquid with all the credentials of a single malt whisky with the versatility and mixability to put it front and centre of a cocktail revolution.
And we’ve succeeded – Monkey Shoulder is the:
• TOP TRENDING SCOTCH in the world’s 50 best bars, and was just named
• “BEST BLENDED MALT SCOTCH WHISKY” at the prestigious
2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The term ‘monkey shoulder’ harks back to our whisky making heritage. It is a reference to a condition that maltmen sometimes picked up while working long shifts, turning the barley by hand. It had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey’s, so they nicknamed it ‘monkey shoulder’.
Zesty orange, mellow vanilla, honey and spiced oak and toasted sesame aromas. Tastes of spicy cinnamon, ginger, zesty orange, mellow vanilla and baking spices. All this with a super smooth finish.
