Batch 27 Smooth and rich
Blended (vatted) malt Scotch Whisky
Rooted in malt whisky history and inspired by the malt men who still turn the malting barley by hand.
Monkey Shoulder is a triple malt whisky blended from three of Speyside’s finest single malts. Using batches of just 27 casks for a smoother richer taste.
The skill of the malt man is demonstrated when he turns the malting barley using a shiel (wooden Shovel) Years ago some Malt men used to develop a temporary strain known by the men as Monkey Shoulder. Practices have changed and thankfully the condition no longer exists.
Inspired by their craft William Grants have created Monkey Shoulder. Their first ever blended triple malt Scotch whisky, unlike traditional blends Monkey Shoulder uses just three of Speyside’s finest single malts and no grain whisky resulting in a richer blended malt of exceptional smoothness.

Colour / Nose: Full (old) gold, sweet, flowery, light spice & soft leather. Becomes sweeter coconut to the fore. With water, there's chocolate, orange & more vanilla.
Palate: Citric with a good balance between vanilla, spiciness & some soft, sultana-like fruits. Lovely melted chocolate on the finish.
Score: 91 / 100
