Monkey Shoulder | Smokey Monkey Batch #9
Speyside Blended Malt Whisky
70cl / 40%
The ever-popular Monkey Shoulder has now had a little spice up. The guys at William Grants have put a twist on the original blend by adding a peated malt to the usual blend of malts from Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie. The result is an amazing and balanced mix of oak smoke, vanilla and spice...
Blended Malt is a procedure where different types of single malts whiskies from different distilleries are married together, also called vatted malt - Pure Malt.
What is'monkey shoulder'? It is a reference to a condition that maltmen sometimes picked up while turning the barley by hand. It had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey, so they nicknamed it 'monkey shoulder'.
