It is said that William Teacher would not give his name to his blend until he had found perfection. Highland Cream is that Whisky. It uses fully smoked peated single malt whisky from The Ardmore Distillery, with this single malt as its fingerprint whisky. This gives it incredible depth and smoothness combined with a rich smokey undertone.
Teacher’s Highland Cream boasts a high peated malt content, one of the highest for Blended Scotch Whisky. At its heart is the smoky malt whisky from the famous Ardmore Distillery, located in Scotland’s Highlands (famous for producing some of the world’s best Single Malt Whiskies). In total, more than 25 different malt whiskies are combined in its recipe. Teacher’s is the oldest Scotch whisky brand, registered in 1884 and continues to be shipped around the world.
The colour is a rich amber with yellow gold highlights and the nose is a deep robust maltiness that shows through from the start that is accompanied by a gentle Highland peat smoke tang. This full flavour slowly fades top allow the sweeter fruitier flavours of apples, pears and heavy honey maturity to show through.
There is a challenging and exciting taste that at the same time is round and warming. This superb flavour is full of rich malts and maturity that slowly fades to a silky rounded texture. The finish is well balanced with a clean busy flavoured fullness that ends with a slow fading of lavours.
