    Mine is a slightly different bottle code (L2A 78512510) but this one is the nearest and i won`t add another different bottling...
    For this price an outstanding blended malt! This is a perfect example for the often noticed "daily dram".

      Not as good as i hoped and as promised in my nose. But: This is a complex and (for it`s price) delicious malt. I miss the Honey...

    A delicious malt and the name Monkey Shoulder comes from the injury that the employees in the distillery suffered from the continuous bragging of the barley. This injury was called a Monkey Shoulder. The whiskey is sweet in taste and rich in vanilla.

  6. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Watery with a very short finish. It tastes and drinks like a young whisky. Easy to see why it's marketed as an upmarket mixer. 
    • Nose
      Bananas, new make, and lemon sherbet.
    • Taste
      Caramel coated banana, new make sourness, a touch of E150 bitterness.
    • Finish
      Mixed grains and oak tannins. 

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very fresh and positive whiskey, surprisingly to the place here Glenfiddich, a great mixture turned out, quite simply and young, but at a low price and a pleasant price / quality ratio the product came out worthy.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fragrant, green apple, malt, yeast, flower-mineral notes, lemonade, honey, lemon zest, Glenfiddih pry from all the cracks, and in the background is clearly identified Balvani, in general, very fresh and playful.
    • Taste
      Green apples in syrup, baked apples with honey, lemon peel, light peppery wave, caramel.
    • Finish
      Soft, pepper-ginger, creamy tones with an admixture of spicy oak, refreshing and light.

    I don't know if I got a dirty glass, or if my tasting came from a bad bottle, but when I put my nose to the glass, I was hit with smell of vomit. I tried repeatedly to nose it, same smell each time.I had a VERY hard time getting past the smell to get to the taste.
