Monkey Shoulder 1L
Monkey Shoulder is a mix of three different Single Malts _ Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie _ and is great with mixers or just on its own. Smooth, sweet and very easy to drink.
The name may seem contrived, but this blended malt from William Grant & Sons refers to a condition among workers in the maltings _ turning the damp grain by hand. They often incurred a repetitive strain injury. More about the name here. Three metal monkeys decorate the shoulder of the bottle and just three single malts go into the blend _ Glenfiddich, Balvenie, and Kininvie. At the launch, great play was made of the whisky?s mixability. You are likely to encounter it in a cocktail menu as you are in your local off-license. Monkey Shoulder has banana, honey, pears, and allspice notes on the nose. The palate is mellow with vanilla, nutmeg, citrus hints, and generic fruit. Its finish is dry with a short burst of menthol.
