Een heerlijke malt en de naam Monkey Shoulder komt van de blessure die de medewerkers in de distilleerderij opliepen door het continue opscheppen  van de gerst. Deze blessure werd een Monkey Shoulder genoemd. De whisky is zoet van smaak en rijk aan vanille.

Color
Yellow gold
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. 

Comments

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.

Color

Nose

Свежий, душистый, зелёное яблоко, солод, дрожжи, цветочно-минеральные нотки, лимонад, мёд, лимонная цедра, Гленфиддих прёт изо всех щелей , а на заднем плане чётко опознаётся Балвэни, в целом очень свежо и игриво.

Taste

Зелёные яблоки в сиропе,печёные яблоки с мёдом, лимонная корка, лёгкая перечная волна, карамель.

Finish

Мягкое, перечно-имбирное, сливочные тона с примесью пряного дуба, освежающее и лёгкое.

Comments

Очень свежий и позитивный виски, на удивление к месту здесь Гленфиддих, отличный получился замес, достаточно просто и молодо, но при невысокой цене и приятном соотношении цена/качество продукт вышел достойный.

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.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Malty, slightly sweet on apples, pears and caramel. Rather pleasant.

Taste

Does not feel too watered down despite the strength, delicate fruitiness of apples, pears, a drop of lemon juice, some subtle spices with pepper and ginger. Nicely rounded.

Finish

Quite short, slightly spicy, slightly bitter, but nothing unbearable.

Comments

This can easily compete with entry level single malts and is half the price of most of them. Good value for money.
