smooth. not big fan of blended scotch
A well balanced Scotch that never fails to please.
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.
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.
Surprisingly smooth. Good mild notes of oak and smoke.
Really good blended scotch.
Amber colour, Light honey to tangerine peel taste, semi smooth. Great value
Honey to tangerine peel taste
Honey to citrusy taste
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.
simple taste, great for the price
It's light and smooth. Needs a bit of depth. Excellent value for money though.
Zesty orange meets mellow vanilla, honey and spiced oak.
Mellow vanilla with spicy hints.
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.
suave, buen sabor, toques de vainilla
vainilla, poco a canela
tiempo medio suave agradable
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.
sweet vanilla taste, perfect for new people in the whisky family
nice with a single ice cube
oké blended scotch
on the sweeter side. nice vanilla notes on the for front. went well with cigars. great beginner scotch
a bit spikey, but a drop of water opens it up. hint of woodiness, good everyday scotch
not too bad, obviously an immature Whiskey when you taste it.
I'm new to scotch and I enjoyed this one.
a nice introductory blend, nothing overwhelming
Smooth. Great intro to Scotch.
Great tasting beginner Scotch.
very pretty whisky. soft nose, light body, short finish. easy sipper. nothing extraordinary.
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.
Smooth. Favorite at this price
Introduced by a friend, will not think twice to buy.
well balanced, nice easy sipper
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.
Hinta-lastusuhde kohdalla. Täyteläinen ja pehmeä whisky.
Bought this after seeing some good reviews and not dissapointed.
Vanilla, creamy, butterscotch
Sweet, buttery like taste
Slight pepper and mild floral like finish
Smooth...good value' no lingering after taste...not complex
Aroma leve com traços finos, adocicado, florais, laranja. Sabor médium +, boa presença, certa oleosidade, final curto e rústico. Interessante.
Vanilla honey and orange nose. a little spice and smooth finish. Good blend.
My go to whiskey. Always on the shelf and easily disappears in one seating.
Buttery, caramel, fruity. Sweet and vey approachable. I see why this one is getting popular.
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.
I prefer a Smokey whisky. But I did try this with soda and it made it buttery, which I like. would prefer not to drink this neat.
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.
had with my neighbor
not my cup of tea, has something tastes like plastic (as someone else mentioned)
Not my taste I didn't enjoy this one. tasted like plastic nuts. I know A lot of people that give a very high review on it.
What a rich and smooth whiskey, you could mistake it for a single malt. Very smooth with vanilla and toffee and rich in honey, cream and finishes with just a very subtle hint of pepper
Incredibly smooth. great after dinner scotch
Banana creme pie, wine, vanilla, and honey.
subtle and smooth
Smooth and Delicious!
Wonderful and smooth.
Great scotch! mellow, smooth.
My wife loves this one.
expected much more
subtle honey notes. good chilled over ice.
Sapore pieno e non affumicato.
