The first sip didn't taste like anything, but after leaving the glass on the table for a while opened it up nicely. Still discovering this one. Pretty bottle.

sweet tasting easy to drink blended malt. I found it to be a pleasant change from the single malts oi normally buy, can wholeheartedly recommend taking this monkey for a spin

Originally given MS by a single malt connoisseur. A lovely discovery which I prefer to many of the single malts in my collection. Smooth, slightly sweet, pleasant after-taste - all in all a real winner for its quality and price.

Younger market? I'm 37 and have tried almost all single malts. McAllen 18yr being my favorite but monkey shoulder is really a great tasting scotch whiskey for the money. The new age multiple single malt blends are really making a name for themselves. Especially monkey shoulder! At $30 it's an incredible buy

Harsh, hot and simplistic compared to a nice single malt but the aftertaste is very nice and lingers well.
This is typical over priced trendy nonsense that only people who have never tasted better would consider buying twice.

I was very impressed with the smooth character. To my mind, it has a lot in common with some of the best young bourbons; creamy, slightly sweet, and a lovely touch of spice.

Being a single malt man myself i have to agree with most other reviews this is a sweet and is as smooth on the palate as a blended malt can be will definatley buy this again

Love this stuff, sometimes I feel I had to go few a thru bottles before I can give a good review, cos some spirits last and some become dull, but off first impressions I like this

Bought a bottle in the duty free on my way to a holiday in Turkey. Excellent choice IMO. A light lingering after taste, easily enough to be very enjoyable. Dare one say almost a 'session whisky'. Certainly wont but taking any back to blightsy! Would definitely buy more.

Bought a bottle of Monkey Shoulder in my search for a quality blend that is a great value for the price. I had no idea that I would discover a fantastic scotch with a wonderful nose and a great finish! Will put this scotch up front and center of my liquor cabinet.

I have being drinking malts for a LONG time and have tried a few 'blended malts' but this is pleasant drinkable and different. Good.

Great whisky in my opinion, nice to share with family/friends. Save the extra good stuff for yourself, haha. Would recommend to everyone because its not worth not trying.

Can you say "Bang for the buck"? That's Monkey Shoulder! Not the best whiskey on earth, but a nice blend that is far more single malt in character, with that typical speyside sweetness. Not a lot going on with this whiskey, but what is there is very easy to drink. I'll buy another bottle when this one is gone ... and that's really the bottom line with this one. It's good, not great ... but great doesn't live in this $$ neighborhood, right?

Ha ha Anonymous, who do you work for? Personally I LOVE IT!
- anonymous, 6th Mar '13
Normally like Irish, or a single malt. tried this and liked it. Lovely tastes that linger enough to make you think,but gone quick enough to make you want another.

Had the bottle bought for me as a Christmas present, and as one who usually drinks Highland park I find the Monkey Shoulder very pleasant..Sure it doesn't have the body and the depth of the Park,(Which I'd expect) but it's very drinkable; It might only be me but I get a very slight licorice aftertaste with the Monkey.
