      cool bottle and a nice whiskey

      whiskey is always a personal choice, but monkey shoulder has quite a cool/funky look that i'm sure is designed to appeal to the younger market- i'm sure a younger person would prefer a bottle of this to some stuffy old bottle of glenfiddich.

      The bottle looks extremely cool, it's more of a squat shape compared to the traditional taller bottled, it reminds me a the kind of bottle that pirates would drink rum from, rather unusual. The label design is really cool, clearly inspired by vintage medicine packaging- the corked top is a nod to this too. There are 3 monkey figures inlaid into the side of the bottle- this gives the product a very high end look, which is made even more impressive by the fact that this only costs about £20- which makes it very reasonably priced for a whiskey.

      In terms of taste, monkey shoulder is a blended whiskey, I know glenfiddich is one of the malts in there but not sure of the other 2. It is a blend of 3 speyside whiskeys- rather inoffensive, not that strong, no peaty/smokey taste-all in all a sweet, slightly spicy taste that's very drinkable, again I think this is designed to appeal to the younger palette compared to something heavy like ardbeg. The fact that this is a blend will put some people off, but the way I see it they've created something that's better than any one of those 3 single malts.

      I've gone through half a bottle of this, and when it's done i'll certainly buy more
