Monkey Shoulder 50ml miniature
- Scottish Blends
Making Monkey Shoulder: One day, our legendary Malt Master David Stewart decided to create the world’s first 'triple' malt, by combining single malts from three of Speyside’s finest distilleries. Why's it so mellow? Well, for starters, there’s not a single drop of grain whisky in our Monkey Shoulder, and the chosen malts mature in first fill ex-bourbon casks. Our own coopers repair these ex-bourbon casks so that they impart a smooth and mellow vanilla flavour into the resting malt whisky. And then, there's Brian Kinsman our new who's our Master now. He always chooses the right combination of casks for every batch he makes, ensuring each one is deliciously smooth and rich as the last. A Threesome is Better than a Onesome: The three Speyside malts are then blended together in a small marrying tun where they hang out making eyes at each other for anything from three to six months. A Marriage Made in Heaven: When it’s ready and taste tested by Brian, this triple malt whisky gets bottled and receives its triple monkey badge. Destined for great bars and homes, that’s our Monkey Shoulder. Smooth and rich, 100% malt Scotch whisky, distilled, matured and bottled in Dufftown, Scotland.
