Country of Origin: Scotland
Teacher’s Highland Cream Scotch Whisky is big, rounded, smooth. Full of crunchy maltiness. To drink this whisky is like biting into peanut brittle. Then toffee. Then liquorice flavours.
Nose: Young grain is predominant with undertones of the typical caramel and treacle notes. There is a greasy, nutty, clarified butter scent – like ghee. A dash of water brings out little extra.
Palate: Young grain is up front – flavours of fresh hay, raw oats, figs, buttered scones. There is a nice creaminess to the mouthfeel, with good body. A dash of water thins the body slightly.
Finish: A little water mellows the finish: candied walnuts and light brown sugar. Medium length finish, slight nuttiness in the finish.
