Monkey Shoulder is a mix of three different Speyside single malts and is great with mixers or just on its own. Smooth, sweet and very easy to drink.Tasting Notes (1)

From day one it has become my 'go to' scotch. Excellent quality at a very reasonable price. Makes a GREAT rusty nail.
Rather new scotch drinker myself, so let me say this. Seasoned veterans will enjoy it, but may not find a tonne of depth. But if you are newer to whisky, specifically scotch and/or just moving to having a dram neat, I can think of nothing I've enjoyed better. It's a step up from your cheap mix of Jack or Crownn, but still smooth, friendly, I notice a lot of sweet honey caramel and a bit more woody finish. The One bottle I would give any other beginner.
Sweet and slightly spicy, with a slightly woody finish. A lot of people find citrus notes (which I don't agree with), but I noticed sweet banana. Maybe this is just my mind leading my mouth based on the name... tried to look past it but that's what I tasted. This is not the most complex scotch out there, but it's certainly very drinkable and enjoyable. I would recommend this for anyone getting into scotch, but even those with experience can find something to enjoy in this daily drinker. Are there better bottles? Yes. At this price? I don't know.
Very smooth, rich and creamy, very nice on its own but works well with mixers.
Monkey Shoulder is one of the best blends out there. It is three Speyside single malts mixed together. It's hard to find a true 100% barley, single malt whisky for this price. I'll admit that it is simple. Very little smokiness and almost no peat, but it captures the Speyside essence well. I suspect the price of this bottle will go up in the near future.
