triple malt scotch whisky miniature - 5cl
Monkey Shoulder Mini Whisky
The Monkey Shoulder 5cl is marketed as a “triple malt scotch whisky” which practically just means that it is created by blending three single malt scotch whiskies. More specifically, it combines Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie, all of which are considered to be Speyside single malts. A total of 27 casks were blended together to create the distinct taste of this brand of blended scotch.
Owing to its Speyside origins, a sip of Monkey Shoulder mini delivers a palate rich in iodine. It has also been characterised to carry a robust, malty flavour. There is another layer of flavour created which adds a calculated complexity to this whisky’s flavour profile. This layer is distinctly rich, creamy, with the flavours of both fresh and juicy fruits, and dried fruits all at the same time. The finish is medium-bodied, leaving a spicy and cooling sensation at the end of a sip.
The Monkey Shoulder whisky miniature is an unconventional take on the highly traditional upbringings of creating blended scotch whiskies. Made for mixing, use a Monkey Shoulder small bottle to create cocktails from something as simple as watering down this whisky with ginger ale to making something as non-conventional as a Pina Colada made using Monkey Shoulder Whisky as a base.
