Whisky Reviews for Monkey Shoulder Batch 27 - The Original
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.53 points
- Smooth and well balanced. Always a bottle in my collection.
- Not bad, but a little too ordinary
Just too sharp
- Enjoyable every day whisky, better from some single malts and in a good price.
Sweet, fresh, apple pie, cinamon, brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, pear and chocolate
Again sweet, fresh fruits, pear, peach, pepper and almonds
Medium to short, spicy, mint, honey and malty
- My favorite blended scotch whisky, and one of my go-to whiskies for the money.
Pleasant throughout, starts out with clean fruit: mellow orange citrus and cider apples with cinnamon coming to the fore as the glass drains.
Flavors are well blended and no individual part is too forward. Toward the middle of the glass the flavors may numb away to just 'scotch'.
Eminently drinkable and rarely hot. Can take a few drops of water but any more will wash it out. At the price point there is no shame in mixing it, either.
