If you're looking for a whisky with a bit of personality, then Monkey Shoulder is the one for you. This unique blend gets its name from the Scottish slang for a muscular strain suffered by malt men during the days when whisky was still made by hand.
The three main single malt whiskies in Monkey Shoulder are Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie - all from Speyside, the spiritual home of whisky. This gives Monkey Shoulder its distinctive fruity and rich flavour profile.
Monkey Shoulder is a smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch which works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels).
So if you're after a whisky that's fun, full of flavour, and has a bit of history behind it, then pick up a bottle of Monkey Shoulder. You won't be disappointed.
