Amazing what the distillers will do to make folks buy a product Smile

Great product shot without a hint of a shadow to be seen Smile

I was given a bottle of monkey shoulder for my birthday but not in the fancy packaging(maybe my mate kept that part).
It really is a nice drop of whisky Smile

-Yep, it looks clear but I may shall not put it to my lips.
I find blended whiskies too acute rather rounded, on the tongue.
Packaging? It cries: 'Different, try me'.

-Any comment/suggestion on the pic?

-Yes, in fact I would welcome some manipulation to erase the effect of the harsh flash on the top of the glass, at the cork part in the bottle, the use of a diffuser on the flash head should have had dealt with that issue fine. It is well done, don't get me wrong, but I think it can go to the ooomph level.

thank you for your input Pablo, it is very much appreciated. A little manipulation would indeed erase the harsh flash, I have no idea why I left that bit and removed others, I will put it down to a senior moment. Smile
A simple two flash set-up, one on the background and one directly in front of the bottle. I have to say though that front flash did indeed have a diffuser fitted.

This is a Christmas present from a discerning daughter. As for the taste, I have not tried it yet. And as for blends, if you ever get your hands on this beauty give it a try.
