Honey sweetness. Little bit of caramel. some fresh citrus can come through. Slight malt flavour on the finish.
a blended speyside with quite a bit of spice, dried fruit, and character. not my favorite whisky ever, but way more interesting than a Johnny walker, even if the more expensive ones are smoother and a bit more refined than this. typical malt and muskiness of a malt whisky
spicey, light dry fruits and mild honey. malty with a pungent musk
very light and citrus flavored. some vanilla and a little oak. fair amount of spice
very short light finish, tastes of honey and oak spice. light sour note
nose just great, too much alcohol on palate and finish for me, but very nice dram
Good bang for your buck even when compared to Johnnie Walker black. Great for beginners.
very nice especially for beginners, excellent blend, very friendly
butterscotch, honey, vanilla
a bit of spice
best taste for a buck, recomend
buttery, caramel, oily
Excellent blend. Smooth, sweet creamy vanilla taste. Absolute great value choice.
Great beginner scotch. Good deal for the money.
not my favorite. not as smooth as i would like but it is a strong blend

One of the best blends
Quite sweet and fruity blend.
Apricot, peach and red apples.
Sweet in front end with some honey. Spicy alcohol burn on the side.
Spicy alcohol burn and som sweetness.
the smell is like vomit which makes the wiskey taste like vomit also. terrible, I'll never but this again.
A beautiful mild blend, perfect for everyday dram.
nose: floral, pear, vanilla, orange
pallet: Orange, vanilla
finish: first vanilla then turning a little bitter
Ein toller Blend, weit verfügbar und gut bezahlbar. Kann man pur trinken oder als Basis für einen Scotch-Cocktail.
Monkey Shoulder ist vom Profil her vergleichbar mit den meisten anderen Scotch-Blends derselben Preisklasse: eine Nase die viel verspricht, ausgewogene Süsse auf der Zunge und ein sehr kurzer, etwas schwacher Abgang.
Vanille, Zitrusfrüchte, leichte Andeutungen von Zrockenfrüchten, rund und ausgewogen aber eher zurückhaltend
Süsse, Vanille, Caramell, Limone, helle Rosinen, Andeutungen von Aprikose und Muskat, kaum Alkoholische Noten, kaum Schärfe
Sehr kurzer Abgang, dominante Eiche, leichte Andeutungen von Sherry, Süsse
Nice sweet vanilla and hiney with a bit of smokey on the nose, little spice but smooth tast.
Just a nice, easy, simple whiskey.
Wonderfully smooth and tasteful. Touches of vanilla, honey, coconut. Sweet and warm. A perfect blended malt.
nose full of honey with a sweet taste to follow. little bit of vanilla and oak. fines has a hint of pepper with a medium finish. nice blend especially for the price.
sweet honey vanilla

super smooth blend , speyside orange notes. comfortable
orange , creme de catalana
sweet, smooth , orange again. little bit of banana and honey. spice.
Definitely get the Orange and Honey in the nose. Smooth taste with some fruit and sweetness on the tongue. This is a great scotch for the price and its everyday approachable makes it a winner.
Orange and Honey
Smooth with some fruity sweetness.
Medium strength with a slow burn that's not too powerful.
very nice whiskey
Sweet but not too sweet. Malty dram that suits any stage of drinker.

Pleasantly smooth. Nice vanilla notes. Not overly sweet.
Pierwszy blend, który pozytywnie mnie zaskoczył.
Great to mix with Ginger ale
Première attaque douce, corps rond et sucré (miel) arrière-goût franc, descend lentement
Not too bad blend
Great flavor and easy to drink blended Scotch and the best part is the price. Really drinks better than the price indicates and an amazing value. Of you haven't tried it, you should.
nice blended malt of 3 distillery's Glenfiddich,Balvenie and kininvie.
light and sweet
vanilla,sweet peat,fruity,apple well balanced
fruity and sweet
Very good blend for those who like aromas from bourbon casks
Best bank for buck! Easy to drink. Best blend so far
Niet zeer speciaal maar een lekkere, toegankelijke whiskey. 'waterig' qua substantie, short-medium
orange and vanilla on the nose, very little alcohol burn, not overwhelming flavor, but it is good, short to medium finish. Great value for a bottle.
Smooth, no burn. Light vanilla and fruity flavors. Amazing value for the price.
for a blend very nice
Nice Speyside whisky
Smooth and fruity
good sipable whiskey
Top notch blended whisky and also very affordable. This is like one of your laid back friends who has a sketchy background but they're fun to hang out with.
Very smooth blend of vanilla and honey. Not much burn at all. Great sipping scotch.
smooth herbal vanilla notes. surprising consistent for the three blends
Lekkere fruitige frisse zachte whiskey, niet complex
Vanille, honing niet rokerig
Fris, honing en citrus
Lange scherpe afdronk
Très doux, facile
Un nez miellé, une bouche vanillée
Un whisky dit "de femme", excellent en toute occasion avec des personnes débutantes dans le whisky.
Lots of honey, not much else.
Smooth and reasonably priced warm and rounded not complicated
Nice and easy. Excellent example of Speyside for beginners.
malt. banana. sweetness.
barley. roasted nuts. almonds. honey.
short and sweet.
Smooth and easy intro scotch. Vanilla or something similar.
A nice sweet blending. A good whisky for starters.
Way too sweet but would be good in cocktails
Approachable and inoffensive. Good if you are looking for straitforward caramel and honey notes.
A sweet fruity and easy to drink. Yet there are more notes to find. An amazing blend for the price.
Good taste, Good price.
Pas assez exotique
Вроде и неплохой купаж, но цена не очень конкурентная, можно и односолодовый найти. тем не менее хороший вариант для тех кто любит покрепче.
rather smooth, I get banana laffy taffy from tasting it but I like it
bon blend. vanillé. bon rapport qualité prix.
really enjoyed. flavors really come through not harsh
bit bitter, smooth not peaty
The first Scotch I have found that I like.
Very smooth. sweet vanilla flavour. the prise is very good - quite affordable.
Smooth initially with hints of sweetness. Soon turns to sharp with hints of spiciness. No real ongoing aftertaste but very warming feel which lingers on. Overall a pleasant no nonsense everyday tipple for a blended whiskey at the price.
Nice whisky at a good price, easily finished in a sitting with friends
A fresh whiskey, but without any special character. A good whiskey for a sit in with your student friends.
Sweetness, a very little note of oak
A lovely scotch whiskey. smoother than I expected.
warming burn but not harsh
Smooth, butterscotchy and easy on the palette.
обалденный, настроение после на 100, послевкусие сухое. Очень рекомендую.
Inexpensive and delicious!
Very smooth and no harshness but the flavour and smell fade quickly. Nothing wrong with it but not distinctive.
mellow, buttery, peat finish
goeie smaak, gerust vaker kopen
Not all blended scotches are made equal, so don't sleep on this one. Tastes like a barrel dipped in melted butterscotch. Lovely on the pallet and the wallet.
very nice banana and vanilla flavor.Easy to drink.Good price
My gateway into whisky: smooth, friendly, easy to drink. Sweet on the nose and palate; caramel, vanilla. A solid whisky.
This is a delicious blended scotch! Very approachable for people who are just getting into scotch and don't want a smokey taste.
Sweet, light, vanilla, caramel
First sip: light, sweet, caramel
Second sip: same
Easy to drink and affordable
Great blend with a buttery flavour.
definitely sweet to the nose
small spice a little vanilla and smoke
sweet Brown sugar
Not very special.
Love the monkey’s on the bottle!
easy drinker. good idea of what a blended malt can be at a low price point.
overwhelming banana in both nose and taste. with a bit of green apple and honey
strong smoke notes that linger on the pallet. I taste literally nothing else.
Easily one of the best beginner whiskeys. Bright and not too complex, notes of apple or pear with the slightest spice note.
Fruitig en zacht van smaak.
Very smooth and easy to drink.
Honey, vanilla tones
Short and smooth
smooth and nice
fruity, pear, soft vanilla
smooth and lingering, fruity, spicy
Very good taste, fruity apple and vanilla taste

Sweet and light. Does well with a little water. maybe an ice cube
sweet, honey, vanilla, malt
Sweet and nutty with a hint of honey. Very woody neat. Tastes best with a little water added.
Fruity and great value for price
very nice blend
testés a multiples reprise
Easy to drink, not too firey. Sweet with honey tones.
standaard in de kast
smooth. Great easy to drink beginners whiskey.
very friendly, easy sipping!
Very nice blend, easy sipping and an all-around crowd pleaser.
Sweet and rich with a spicy finish; great value whisky that has plenty of taste and character.
sweet, fruity, citrus, like orange, a bit of cinnamon and spice so sweet it almost seems artificial to some extent, to people with who like challenging whiskies this would be dissapointing most of the time, but it does what people need it to, and it does it damn well
Smooth, easy everyday sipper
God og rund whisky der det er vanskelig definere en smak, men det er hint av vaniljesmak.
bra wiskey, med fin avsluttande vanilje smak
geur: fruitig, zacht, fris
smaak: duidelijk spicy, friszoet, flink aanwezig houtsmaak
finish: niet zo lang, licht pitje
Made by blending whisky from 3 distilleries including the Kininvie. Its soft and sweet, but not boring. Floral, earthy, harvesty notes. Nothing intense or edgy. But it tastes genuine, fresh and natural. This is my favorite blend.
rather sweet and very smooth
Pretty good scotch, not too much peat well blended.
Main event Farmingdale
Light and sweet.
it's a very nice and simple whisky, amazing to drink daily. it's good considering the pricetag
it goes away very quickly
One of those you need to mix with coke... I'm very disappointed.
Nice beginner whisky.
Incredible value. not the best you will ever have, but nothing wrong with this considering the price tag.
a good wisjey
Not really my thing but because of some surprising and interesting notes it's not a complete failure to me. If I got it as a gift, I wouldn't be angry 😉
Nose is voluminous but quite flat and easy. Vanilla, cereals, raspberries, orange cest and a gingery or herbal spiciness.
A bit more interesting than expected but not too enjoyable for my taste. The herbal touch comes in a medical way and it developes some salt and roasted nuts.
Finish adstringend and drying with a really metallic bitterness.
Good blend with vanilla and peaty notes.
Gewoon lekkere goede whisky voor een leuke prijs
Very good blend of three great Speyside malts (Balvenie, Glenfiddich, Kininvie). Great value and great beginner scotch but in due time one’s palate craves a bit more complexity.
Opening level scotch
Honey and applr
Apple, maybe some cherry, light sweetness
Simple and short
Nice Whisky with decent smell and full taste. Not very complex, but still aromatic. Fair priced
Nice easy whisky. Personaly preffered cold with a few drops of water
good and cheap blend. The monkey is smooth.
good for cocktails.
A blend of 3 malts.
glenfiddich, balvenie, kinichie...nice budget blend..try it for your collection
Good rounded and smooth
Voor het geld is het een whisky die in je kast hoort.
Tried this with a friend, and he wholeheartedly agreed......this whisky smells and tastes like vomit.
I can't go near this stuff.
en dejlig let begynder whisky.
First foray into Scotch whiskey and I must say, I'm impressed. Mild flavor, very little burn and no aftertaste. Fantastic for mixing with cola (Mt. Dew, yum). Glad I started with this brand.
One reason I give this goodness a 95. It is excellent for mixing cocktails. Highly recommend for a inexpensive scotch.
great stuff would definitely recommend!
Not bad, but the taste is completely gone after 2 seconds. Good for mixing with cola I guess.
floral notes, easy beginner scotch, toffee and banana flavor, hint of brown sugar
Smooth, dry aftertaste
honey , vanilla
my first blend and was a bit disappointed. not much depth in the flavors
found it diluted... with no real flavours confirmed.
The first blend i have had. not the best.
spice but not a nice spice
strong alcohol aftertaste
Exceptional value, at under $50 AU this is a great everyday dram. Versatile and well balanced. For a blend this has identity, sweet with notes of vanilla and honey.
Vanilla and honey
smooth, fruity, never gets bored.
extremely tasty blend, fruity with nice chocolate notes, superb price/quality ratio
Very good for first time Scotch drinkers. Price is lower than I would have expected.
Definitely best buy Whisky at the moment.
I was skeptical about this at first but when I open it up nice Aroma Nice taste
Good for after work sip!
Very drinkable. Sweet, soft and smooth. Great starter!
Very smooth and flavoursome for a young whisky. Hints of marzipan on the finish.
Decent blended whiskey, perhaps a little too floral on the nose. But I like the smoothness, the vanilla, and the oak.
Vanilla, Spice, Oak
Sweet fruity. Not bad but there is nothing that makes me want more.
Banana bread, caramel and vanilla
butterscotch type warm buttered toast feel. My new favourite blend 😎🥃
Smoky smell but fruity taste. It has a rough feel that is displeasing for me since I prefer single malt whiskies.
A great Whisky to taste, it's so smooth as mentioned it can be mistaken for a Single malt. all in all, a great after taste and a bottle needed in every house
Very smooth and mild whisky.
After taste is not very strong and doesn't last very long, but a nice whisky.
nice vanilla, a bit of fruit
nez vanille, miel corsé en bouche... longueur moyenne
Really nice. Sweet, gentle, quite smooth and a bit floral. Not overly complex or with a strong finish but very pleasant to drink. A great entry whisky and a good casual dram, which is sometimes all you need.
Floral, vanilla, toffee, slight nuttiness.
Some dried fruit.
A smooth taste. for me not to special
Vanilla vanilla vanilla !! :P
I do not understand why you are so fond of it. I even wondered if there was not a problem with my bottle ...
It's the worst of my collection.
smooth and a bit bright
soft. fast fade of after taste. nice whiskey for beginner introduction.
Smooth and delicious. Thoroughly enjoyable.
For this price, a very tasteful blend.
smooth just nothing special
Maybe a bit too sweet. Fast fade of taste, but a really "well done" blend.
A very nice blend, vanilla and honey. It became one of my favorite.
This is my favorite blended Scotch. Mildly sweet, smooth, delicious, and affordable!
Too sweet, should be classified as liqueur rather than whisky.
The taste dissipates quickly and leave nothing but a watery remnant behind.
As a basis for your drink, I can recommend this. As a whisky to enjoy neat, I would stay clear.
Mildly sweet, nice honey scent.
very affordable blend. vanilla/honey and a smooth finish. nice one for beginners and the more experienced.
Bon rapport qualité prix pour ce malt blend.
One of the better blended ones and not very expensive. I've never owned a bottle but have had it a lot when going out. I recommend going with a little water or one cube of ice for this one. As always, I tend to prefer a single malt, so I probably won't buy myself a whole bottle, but you can do a lot worse than Monkey Shoulder.
Nice blend from "William Grant & Sons Distillers". Easy drinkable. Sherry sweetness. Also as usual there is E150a (food coloring) in it. It is normal for most scotch and other whiskies, but nonetheless I keep in my mind - this beautiful color is unnatural, for a pity...
Good, pleasant dram, for a blend. Definitely entry-level scotch, but a well-done one.
Easy whisky, lekker en simpel. Originele verpakking
nice whisky. little short in taste.
easy to drink whiskey. soft smoothly flow.
Fantastic easy drinking whiskey
smooth and creamy, good balance
creamy, malty vanilla, winter spice
malty, creamy , juicy berry fruit, honey, dried fruit, apricot
medium, sherry, spicy oak
Malty / fruity / creamy whisky. Also honey. Good whisky under €50,00.
a nice go to well blended good balance
full flavor,but all the flaver are a litter weak and short.
a very well blended whisky
Love it. One of the tastiest blended malt I have tried.
when I want to buy à good whisky without breaking, Monkey Shoulder is always my first choice. its a very good whisky, a bit smoky, some fruity nose. excellent overall at that price.
déçu. prometteur mais peu goûteux
Nice blended whisky
bon whisky, bon rapport qualité prix
향긋한 과일향이 확퍼지고 향은 부드러운편
안주를 곁들이기보단 가볍게 한잔씩 하는 정도로 좋을듯
Smooth with hints of vanilla and caramel
