Whilst All Blended Scotch Whiskies are made with both the malt and grain whickies, Teacher's Highland Cream is unique. The blend has an exceptionally high malt content. No less than 45%. This gives it a richer more full bodied favour.
A complex bland: Teacher's uses over 30 different single malt whiskies in its blend. It is our master Blender's skill that ensures that these malts are balanced and harmonised delivering the same full rich taste that W M Teacher created over 175 years ago.
Everyone will find something different in a glass of Teacher's Highland Cream such is its complexity. These are the tasting notes of Michael Jackson one of the UK's leading experts:
Nose: Oily, fudge-like.
Palate: Big, rounded, smooth, full and crunchy maltiness. To drink this whisky is like biting into peanut brittle, then toffee, then liquorice flavours.
Finish: Rooty, oaky, smoky. These dry flavour providing a perfect balance.
Comment: Malty, even creamy, but never cloying. Big and sustaining.
Try it for yourself, pour yourself a dram, add a little water, put your nose deep into the glass and sniff. Then take a sip and let it roll to the back of your tongue. What thoughts/sensations come into your mind?
