Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch
Blended Malt Scotch is an often overlooked category confused with Blended Scotch by many. But whereas Blended Scotch combines malted barley spirit with other grain spirits, like corn or wheat, Blended Malt is simply a blend of different single malt whiskies, without any other grain spirits added. As such, it can have just as much big, rich, malty character as a single malt, as Monkey Shoulder beautifully demonstrates. Aromas are sweet and deep, baking spices, caramelized bananas, and freshly chopped wood. Taste is dry, grainy and spicy, flavors of green herbs, lightly smoked cedar and roasted apples.
