Monkey Shoulder is a blended malt Scotch whisky that originates from Scotland. It is crafted by William Grant & Sons, a renowned distillery with a rich heritage of whisky making.
What sets Monkey Shoulder apart is its unique blend of single malt whiskies from three different Speyside distilleries. The whiskies are carefully selected and expertly married together to create a harmonious and balanced flavor profile.
Monkey Shoulder is known for its smooth and approachable character. It offers a delightful combination of fruity, malty, and creamy notes, with hints of vanilla, honey, and delicate spices. The result is a whisky that is incredibly versatile and suitable for both sipping neat and mixing into cocktails.
The name “Monkey Shoulder” pays homage to the hard work and dedication of maltmen in the past, who tirelessly turned the malted barley by hand, often causing a temporary strain on their shoulders. This tradition is reflected in the whisky’s character, which is made with great care and a nod to the craftsmanship of the past.
