Whisky Reviews for Teacher's Highland Cream

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.33 points

  1. Armin Fuchs scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Good quality!

    A Whisky made for the pub visit:

    You can drink it without spending much time with the nosing ... and it gets better with every sip.

    Simple but balanced and satisfying.
    • Nose
      Moist bark and grain, 'earthy' flavors, some smoke, a bit of charcoal, some orange in the distance, sometimes a hint of orange blossom honey.
    • Taste
      Creamy, sweet, spicy, powerful;

      Vanilla, Sherry influence, subtle citrus notes becoming stronger over time, dark chocolate;

      (Butter) cookies, oak becomes more, suddenly Spearrips with Demerara, distant orange notes, something 'old';

      then also hints of pepper and a memory of honey-sweetness.
    • Finish
      Refreshing towels, citrus, vanilla pod, pleasant bitterness and wood aromas, dark pastries, hint of cocoa powder or dark chocolate, sweetness of honey and old yellow jams, apricots, then green salad and garden herbs;

      'burnt' caramel with dark vanilla pod, salt appears.

      Typical 60s powder and floral aromas - very pleasant.

    My score is for a similarly labeled Teacher's bottled in 50's/60's?, 86 proof, USA import.

      grain, tree fruit, yoghurt, earthy
    • Taste
      silk soft at first but a little creamy towards the end. Vanilla tones.

      Its cold in the mouth
