William Grant & Sons USA’s Monkey Shoulder blended malt Scotch whisky made its debut in the United States after six years in the United Kingdom. The whisky blends three of Speyside’s single malts and is matured in first-fill Bourbon casks hand-selected by Malt Master Brian Kinsman to ensure its signature smooth flavor. Monkey Shoulder is crafted in small batches of 27 cases and offers a sweet and rich vanilla flavor, with brown sugar and creamy toffee notes balanced with oak and a hint of spice, the company says. A 750-ml. bottle retails for about $26.99.
