A vatted, or pure, malt whisky, this cheeky monkey is made by combining three single malts from separate distilleries.
The name is derived from the name for the old injury incurred by the malt men at the distillery who turned the malting barley with a shiel (a kind of large wooden spade). Thankfully machines do this now, but this whisky has been named in honour of the passion these men had.
Tasting Notes : The nose has light and delicate vanilla with floral and soft honey aromas. The palate is smooth and rounded with hints of malty sweetness, marmalade and barley sugar. The finish is monumental!
Producer : William Grant & Sons
Method of Production : Made in just small batches of 27 casks, from three separate distilleries malt whisky with no grain whisky.
