Monkey Shoulder Blend Bottling Note

Monkey Shoulder Scotch is 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 which works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels).

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: An elegant, stylish nose of marmalade, Crema Catalana (apologies, but it really is there), cocoa and malt. Plenty of 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.

Overall: 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." This is whisky to be enjoyed.

Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Reviews

A lovely gentle unchallenging drop. Cheap too.

Not normally what I would gravitate towards...but I am glad I did. It's very well priced...almost too easy to drink and surprisingly elegant. I really like it. My more high end stuff will last a bit longer as a result which is always good.

Worthy but rather dull

Pretty good value at the price and I think that creamy is a good description. It's nicely balanced and there is nothing unpleasant about it but I tasted it immediately after a dram of Bunnahabhain 12 (a favourite of mine) and by comparison I found it lacking in complexity and character, and short on the finish. It's not a bad introduction to vatted malt but don't expect anything very interesting.

A malt to remember by.

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.

No Monkeying Around

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!

Very very average Scotch considering price,you can get far far better. Short finish too.

Will be buying again

Flavor explosion in my mouth!!! Honey sweetness, smoky earthiness, and a bright spiciness. What’s not to like? Great scotch.

Stay away unless if you are a pro

I tried this whiskey after the 18year old Glenfiddich. This is a stereotypical whisky, burns!! Toffee and smoke in the nose.

Are there bad bottles? Because WOAH

An unpleasant sting to the tongue and short, no fun. I could easily note the vanilla, however all that molested my tongue was an acetone wash.
No matter how much I've tried to enjoy this my flavour open orchestra begins off-tune and disperses to a quick end, with tears....
It's rather okay in cocktails.
Sadly not exploding with the hype I was handed by others, a friend keeps homemade whiskey in their bottle now....only had one bottle, it's empty and replaced, probably for good reason.

I'm curious as to why so many vouch for this whiskey? And those that dislike it....are like me, 0.5-3 stars in pure shock. I'm wondering if there have been impacts to tamper with the flavour profile of some bottles, shipping, storage etc. Because those that enjoy it, seem to note every flavour and kiss their bottle!

Not Smooth

Not fun as this one is mentioned as smooth & creamy for Monkey Shoulder
