Monkey Shoulder - Smokey Monkey

4.8

700 ml
  • Created by bartenders, for bartenders


    Smokey Monkey, a peated version of the popular Monkey Shoulder blend, is designed with a smokey profile that aims to provide a unique twist on the classic.


    Initially released in select bars in France and the UK, it caters to bartenders' demands for a smoky punch in cocktails, yet it also manages to please those who prefer to sip their whisky neat.


    The whisky presents a pleasant nose with sweet orange, malty funk, and smoke, thanks to the highland peat used in the blend, offering a less medicinal smokiness compared to some Islay whiskies. On the palate, it starts with a light peatiness reminiscent of watered-down Balvenie Week of Peat, revealing a slightly Marmite, yeasty aftertaste as the smokiness fades.


    This makes Smokey Monkey an approachable option for those new to peated whiskies, providing a gateway to explore this distinctive flavor profile without overwhelming the senses.


    Smokey Monkey offers good value for those looking to experience the world of peat without making a significant investment. Its approachable nature, combined with the quality associated with the Monkey Shoulder brand, makes it a versatile whisky that's not only great for mixing in cocktails but also enjoyable on its own for a casual sipping experience.


    It is particularly suited as an introduction to peated malts, praised for its smoothness and the right amount of sweetness. It's a lightly peated whisky ideal for those days when a heavy peat bomb isn't desired but a hint of peat is still welcome.

Wondering how I'd be able to resist taking another sip of that smokin' drink with the great flavor and smooth feel!

Glenn Castaneda

If you like fruity and earthy flavors, you'll seriously love the toffee!

Leonardo Pollard

The honeydew melon and flamed orange peel on the nose create an unforgettable sensory experience that goes beyond one's expectations. The vanilla and earthy notes paired with a subtle hint of peat on the palate make it an instant favorite, while the lingering taste of toffee crisp bars and a touch of drying smoke on the finish add a delightful complexity to the overall taste.
