The Journey begins when they select three of speyside’s finest malts and allow them to mature in bourbon casks.
The maturation process and cask selection are the axclusive responsibilites of the Malt Master, David Stewart, and his assistant. Only they know the exact length of maturation required and only when they are completely happy do they select a batch of 27 casks for blending, having tasted each one individually for quality and consistency.
After further cask ageing, and at just the right moment, the Malt Master decides the whisky is ready for bottling and worthy of the signature metal monkeys that declare it to be Monkey Shoulder Triple Malt Scotch Whisky.
Nose – Delocate floral notes are intertwined with a zesty citrus orange and soft fresh fruits. Hints of honey and spicy oak enveloped with a rich vanilla sweetness.
Taste – Beautifully sweet and a rich vanilla flavour. Brown sugar and creamy toffee balanced with oak notes and just a hint of spice.
Finish – Exceptionally smooth with a lingering sweetness.
