Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
joseph,
Such a smooth Blended whiskey,orange malt richness with a hint of bite, great daily drink!!
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Joseph,
If you want Macallan but don’t want to spend the premium, Monkey Shoulder does a great job of capturing classic Speyside flavor at a much more reasonable price.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Daniel,
Starts smooth but then had quite a bite. Bold, rich spices with a mellowing effect. If it wasn't for the bite, it would be much higher.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Andy,
Very smooth but subtle. I taste the vanilla and orange zest. Probably won't buy it again just because for $30 I prefer something else with more character.

Vladislavs,
For me it lacks personality... some face if you want. Not bad at all but not really good either...
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Alex,
It's a good blend of scotch, but sometimes doesn't sit well with me depending on my mood.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Chris,
Clean, light flavor with sweet subtle vanilla, floral nose and pleasant finish with no sharpness. Great value.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Matt,
My 8/10 rating is a value rating, not a rating based on other, far better and more mature Scotches. For the money, Monkey Shoulder is hard to beat. It's a nice one to have on hand simply because it's cheap and satisfying. Would I much rather have an 18 year Scotch? 100% of the time. But for a $30-ish whisky, Monkey Shoulder is an excellent value. Hits far above its pay grade.

Slight smoke (plus). Mild flavor.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Mike,
It makes an awesome scotch and soda with a lemon twist! I save it for that. It’s drinkable neat but I prefer my bourbons over it. On those nights that I have to have a scotch I go for Aberlour or glendronach 12 or Laphroaig 10 On further tasting I’m getting more sweetness and it’s nicer, butterscotch and spice, I like it a lot!

Tasty
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Ryan,
Not on my top list of Scotch but not bad by any means. I think if someone wants to try a dram from Scotland but they are afraid of the peat smoke this will gently introduce you in a boring but friendly kind of way. Its like an old friend that doesnt want to go out or do anything and likes to play it safe.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Casey,
If you are a bourbon drinker, in my opinion this is probably the best introductory scotch I can think of for you to try out. Good price, nice and peated, with subtle vanilla and caramel notes which are rather universally inoffensive.
