Whiskey vs Whisky, which is the correct way to write it? Both are correct, the Scots spell it whisky and the Irish spell it whiskey. So, Monkey Shoulder whisky is from Scotland. It is a blend of 3 malt whiskies: Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie. It is smooth, sweet and easy to drink. On the nose you can detect oranges, vanilla, honey and spiced oak. On the palate it tastes like mellow, spicy vanilla. This whisky is best to drink by itself, with a little bit of water or on the rocks. Very nice price. We found it at Boutique du Vin. It is distributed by Plaza Cellars.
