    monkey shoulder was my first whiskey so I was very curious about this smokey monkey.

    I found it a bit watery but otherwise a good blend.
    looked very like the original monkey shoulder but then with light smoke in it.

    for me no added value. but certainly no wrong whiskey

    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.
    • Nose
      Fresh smoke, butterscotch, peach, orange, some lime in the background.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Mild smoke and oak, nut and fruit accompany the short to medium-long finish, which at the end melts sweet chocolate.
