Why is Monkey Shoulder called Monkey Shoulder we hear you ask!
Well, in the traditional malt whisky making process, malted barley is turned by hand by malt men using large heavy malt shovels. Years ago, some malt men would develop a strain injury which had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey's, so they nicknamed it 'monkey shoulder'. Thankfully, the condition no longer exists but we're still proud to honour our whisky heritage.
- Rooted in malt whisky history, and inspired by the malt men who still turn the malting barley by hand, 'Monkey Shoulder' is blended in small batches of speyside's finest single malt whiskies then married to achieve a smoother, richer taste.
- Inspired by the malt man's craft, Monkey Shoulder has been created using speyside's finest single malt whiskies, resulting in a rich blended malt of exceptional smoothness.
- Taste: Mellow vanilla with spicy hints
- Nose: Zesty orange, vanilla honey & spiced oak.
