Meet Monkey Shoulder, the world’s first triple-malt Scotch. A labor of love by legendary Malt Master David Stewart, this cheeky blended whisky is actually a marriage of three of Speyside’s finest single malts.
For each batch, 27 casks are hand selected by malt masters David Stewart and Brian Kinsman. These precious liquids are then blended together in a marrying tun before maturing in first fill Bourbon casks. The resulting liquid is a smooth, rich, 100% malt Scotch whisky celebrated for its unique identity and wonderfully malleable tasting notes.
And while we can’t reveal the specifics of Monkey Shoulder’s recipe, we can promise that it’s a whisky rooted in authenticity yet blended for the next generation of drinkers.
Nose: An elegant, stylish nose of marmalade, Crema Catalana (apologies, but it really is there), cocoa and malt. Plenty of vanilla and a sprinkling of winter spice (nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon) alongside a mouth-watering hint of aniseed.
Palate: Very malty, creamy delivery with a suggestion of berry fruit. Juicy toasted barley, cloves and butterscotch. Manuka honey, hot-buttered-toast and dried apricot develop.
Finish: Medium length, spicy oak and a hint of peppermint on the tail.
Overall: According to the Monkey Shoulder website: "Some say it tastes just like riding bareback on the wild moors of Scotland with a flame haired maiden on Christmas morning. Others agree it tastes like 007 wearing a tuxedo wetsuit." This is whisky to be enjoyed.
