Monkey Shoulder

Monkey Shoulder: a blend of small-batch single malts from three Speyside distilleries, casked in batches of 27. Because it’s a blend, you shouldn’t be afraid to mix it — straight, it has strong vanilla notes, and a long honey and malt finish. Powerful Speyside nose to it. Also good for replacing your blood with. As I am, right now.

I don't know the next thing about whisky, but that's a really lovely bottle.

Ha! Recently, I went to my favourite wine store in Paris, Vins et Saveurs, run by a friend of a friend of my family, where I always buy my favourite cognac, Louis Royer, (okay, I'll admit it, the only cognac I ever drink), and I saw from the corner of my eye the Monkey Shoulder box. After inquiring about the price (incidently, the same as the cognac), I got that instead, and don't regret it one bit. As Mr. Mettler said, "C'est bon. C'est tres bon."
