Monkey Shoulder is a mix of three different Single Malts - Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie - and is great with mixers or just on its own. Smooth, sweet and very easy to drink.

A very easy .smooth blend of triple malt ,not my usual single malt. Was bought for as present ,and would certainly try again.

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?

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.

It is not the brilliant whisky which was earlier produced as being "Triple Malts" -now it's any old thing that can be derived from 27 casks. Not my thing - I'll stick with Highland Park - a bit dearer but not by much but it is one you can rely on.

Dare I say a little bland. Certainly smooth and easy to drink but just seems to be lacking something. That may have some thing to do with it being a 'Starter Whiskey' aimed at the younger market. Overall a very nice Whiskey, just that if you have a bit more of a broad knowledge of Whiskey you may want something with a bit more of a challenge to it.

Just terrific. First tried it in Oban. Have ordered a case, due here in two days. WHAT A REAL THRILL.

I am a whisky drinker and have been for over 50 years, so I have tried a few bottles in my time, some good some not so, and one or two would make excellent barbecue starters or coin cleaner, however I've just tried the monkey for the first time and all I can say is where have you been all my life. I only hope that if it gets too popular the quality will not suffer, very nice one Mr Grant, keep up the good work.

A fantastic drink for the money, there is no better 'session whiskey' to waste an evening with friends! There will always be a bottle of this on my shelf! For how long is a different matter!

This is my first bottle but it won't be the last' much to my wife's annoyance!

How 'anonymous' can say this is boring is plain stupid. I'm usually quite sniffy about blends but as this is a blend of two of my fav single malts in Glenfiddich and Balvenie I was delighted when a friend bought me a bottle of this. It is every bit as good as either of those single malts, with lovely honey aromas and a sweet gentle finish on the palate. Highly recommended.

I'm on my 3rd bottle and I must say it's a nice change of pace from all the single malts and the best of the blends I've tasted in a very long time. Being a fan of the Highlands, this is sweeter and more floral. Nice by the dram straight up or chilled..it's easy to drink as it's surprisingly smooth for 86 proof. It's a blend, but with way more mouthful and complexity. JW Black was our pedestrian scotch whiskey since day one, not any more! Worth every penny.
