They need to change the name. "Monkey Shoulder" label caused me to pass it by multiple times. But this is fantastic blended Scotch around $30, kind of bargain you only see in say a great rye. Bold, caramelly, sweet notes come through balanced without any nasty surprises and wholly delicious. Sure this is not as complex or cerebral as some high dollar Scotch, but are we here to drink or think.

General description

Picked up on a whim, not bad at all. Oak with vanilla and malt notes and a peppery finish that lingers just long enough. Yes it is a blend but for the price it is a good value scotch. Yes it is not complex but sometimes you just want an easy sipping dram.

Angenehm milde Nase. Birne, Melisse, Marzipan, Obstgarten, feuchtes Holz, saurer Apfel, Honig, Weintrauben, Hauch Lavendel. Geschmacklich überraschend fruchtig, dominanter Apfel und Honig Geschmack. Mehlig aber nicht ungut. Mittellanger Abgang, betäubt die Zunge dezent. Überraschend guter Triple Blend.

Haven't had many different samples of scotch, but this is my favorite so far. I really enjoyed the flavor and smooth finish. Sweet nose with hints of peat. Mellow with hints of tobacco on finish.

Very dry and lacking complexity. I am not sure what the fuss is about? I got it on sale but would not pay the full price of almost $40 in NC. Definitely a bar pour. Much better blends out there for much less.

General description

Nose is reminiscent of wine, and has a faint peat scent up close. Gentle mouthfeel with stings at the edges of the wave, but then mellows completely. Flavor changes in seconds in your mouth, from tart grapes to burnt grain. Finish is the burnt grain, occasionally popping up into the grapes again.

Overall I truly enjoy this whisky. It’s a good blend that does a fantastic job of displaying Scotch to people new to Scotch. For the more experienced, it stands on its own as a good sipper when you don’t want to have to think about every sip. Will always keep in the home bar.

Very smooth and fruity flavours. My favourite as it comes to blended whiskeys. Almost like a single malt, but ofcourse it is a mix of 3 good malts.

This is definitely not my favorite. It has an overwhelming smell of acetone that only slightly dissipates on letting the whisky rest for a few minutes. The taste is pure black pepper with a harsh unpleasant finish.
