Monkey Shoulder Triple Malt Scotch Whisky
A superb blended malt whisky from William Grant, made with single malts from three famous Speyside distilleries. The result is a smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch which works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails
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 07 wearing a tuxedo wetsuit. If you haven't tried either yet but want a handy little cheat sheet to check out, here you go- but remember it's completely up to you, what you think it tastes like. The term 'monkey shoulder' harks back to our whisky making heritage. It's a reference to a condition that maltmen sometimes picked up while working long shifts, turning the barley by hand. It has a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey's, so they nicknamed it 'monkey shoulder'.
