This blended malt combines Glenfiddich, Balvenie, and Kininvie malts, and the nose is light, smooth, and malty with notes of nuts, vanilla, and oak. The taste is smooth and slightly peppery with caramel and maple syrup notes underneath, and the finish has soft and light spices.
Note: This is for the UK/global version of Monkey Shoulder bottled at 40% ABV. The US version is bottled at 43% ABV.
