Monkey Shoulder Smokey Monkey Batch 9 / 40% – Monkey Shoulder, a blend of Balvenie, Glenfiddich and Kininvie, was launched by William Grant & Sons in 2005. The brand introduced bartenders to mixing malt and was a tremendous success. In 2015 Monkey Shoulder was voted ‘the trendiest and most requested spirits brands’ among the world’s leading bars, according to “Drinks International” magazine. In the summer of 2017, responding to request of leading bartenders from across the world the company released smoky expression of Monkey Shoulder called Smokey Monkey. It is produced using proportion of whisky distilled from malt dried using Highland peat (our guess would be Ailsa Bay) and aged in first fill ex-bourbon casks. Smokey Monkey was originally released to selected bars in the UK and France.
