After the batch 27 Smooth and Rich now the second Monkey Shoulder, which is basically reminiscent of the first, but in addition to the naturally new smoke and a bit more complex overall. In my opinion, a very successful blend, only the price and the availability is a bit irritating. Well, the one after the other, but after the announcement nine months ago should be able to get all the clubs and bars at a small and a release at the whiskey traders is about time.
Fresh smoke, butterscotch, peach, orange, some lime in the background.
Well-dosed cigar smoke with butterscotch and lemon, strong nut chocolate and coffee, an orange taste suggests the influence of ex-sherry casks, apple and honey, barley, creamy overall.
Mild smoke and oak, nut and fruit accompany the short to medium-long finish, which at the end melts sweet chocolate.
