Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Review

Tasting Notes: A solid blended malt scotch, nice medium to satin mouthfeel, a hint of smoke and peat with a sweet malt consistency.

A nice sweet blend with satin smooth mouthfeel and a mildly sweet malt profile. It’s not exactly a “single malt” and is considered a blend, but it’s a blend of single malts which means you don’t fill it with other whisky grain alcohols. Monkey Shoulder is an exceptional blend of what must be exceptional single malts because you’d think this is a highly expensive bottle of scotch and not a blend of anything.

So, if you have the option to skip a blended scotch for a blended malt like Monkey Shoulder, you’re definitely going to find many of the great properties of a single malt within what Doug defines as “that’s so good.”  At a cost effective price and a mastered blend of great products into what we can only say should be considered the “Greatest Hits” of single malts, Monkey Shoulder should be the next thing you buy.

    Saw your review of Monkey Shoulder and went to buy some. Was pleasantly surprised by a blend that I believe was as good as most of the single malts I’ve tried and for $30- A great buy! Thanks
