    This, of course, is not the same whiskey that was earlier, the grain base is felt more than malt, the rocks are fresher, but the smoke has faded into the background, if not into the third. But overall the whiskey is pleasant.

    Tasting in a cross-comparison with the lead malt Ardmore Trasitional: The pale gold Teacher's Highland Cream remains, as you would expect, much more reserved in the peat and smoke aromas, which are nevertheless clearly recognizable after pouring. The sweetness is much stronger here, toffee-like, albeit accompanied by a noticeable sharpness, overall the association with ginger jam comes to mind. In addition there is a nice light fruitiness with grapes, prunes and - hm - is it mango? Almost no smoke is revealed in the taste, here the creamy-caramel tones dominate according to the name, at most something slightly nutty and dark chocolate is also added here. In the finish, which also has a certain sharpness, the peat genes are clearly revealed again, a short licking on a piece of partially burned, wet wood is an obvious association. All in all, Teacher's really can't deny his “father” - but for security's sake maybe a blind tasting at some point? In any case, the Teacher's remains one of my preferred inexpensive blends, ideal for every day and every occasion.

    An "everyday blend" ...
    • Nose
      slight alcohol note, fruity (pear), malty,
    • Taste
      soft onset, very light smoke, sweet, malty, some fruit, slightly sprightly, "metallic" youth;
    • Finish
      medium length finish, slight nuttiness in the finish;

    it tastes a little watery, but it does taste of something and is quite inoffensive. Good value for money when you consider all the effort that goes into it - at least you're not being ripped off and almost certain to be supped, rather than gather dust.

    Very long in the mouth. Mark the fragrance of chestnuts, gingerbread and oak wood fumes.
    Malt is present with a good dose of bitterness.

  10. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Fine and fruity peat (citrus, melon ...) perfectly melted together. There is also malt, which only remains after some time, the rest fainting. In the mouth, very supple, a little watery of course but we find this sweet melon and sweet spices that make it a very summer dram. Final quite short and relatively neutral. I accompanied this Teacher's by a fishing jockey for dessert and I must confess that I have KIFFE! Enthusiasm 4/5
