'Big, rounded, smooth. Full of crunchy maltiness. To drink this whisky is like biting into peanut brittle. Then toffee. Then liquorice flavours. 8.5/10' Michael Jackson, Whisky Magazine April 2000

    I'd drink Islay everyday if I could afford it. Until then, I'll drink this. It's the only blend that really delivers on the smokey end of the spectrum. I prefer it to JW Double Black, Black Grouse, or White Horse.

    Been searching for an everyday scotch blend. No arguments here that single malts/single malt blends are better, but I...drink it a lot. I'm not spending a few hundred dollars a month on my go-to drink. I can't stomach beer as I did in my youth. A few rocks, a splash of San Pelligrino now and then - heaven. The Famous Grouse was good but lacks finish and is a bit hotter. JW, Dewars, Chivas, all a bit too harsh for me. Teacher's HC is full bodied, a bit of smoke from front to back, and nicely balanced. Just wish I could find 1.75 bottles in my area.

    Sorry. It is just tooooo sweet. Sugar. dominates over the flavor whiskey . A shame ... In my humble opinion.

    22 years of “professional tasting/sipping/drinking" experience. Never to get drunk, always before meals, always rinsing a mouth with a gulp of water between previous and next cycle. Have always been able to buy between $20 to $200 per litre. Huge variety of scotch, whiskeys and bourbon. Two equal #1 choices : TEACHER'S HIGHLAND CREAM (among any single or blended Scotch Whisky) & JAMESON (among any single or Blended Irish Whiskey ) No more experiments. Cheers

    I'm a very new to scotch, a friend recommended this to me because I enjoy Islay Mist. Nose: Black licorice, Dark chocolate, Banana, Isopropyl alcohol, a hint of barbecue sauce (I picked this up once out of maybe 10 smells) Palate: , Heavy cream, copper, butterscotch, peat (you really need to roll it around Honey for awhile to taste it), Mint, a dash of citrus Finish: Mint, Menthol, Grain alcohol, Sea salt, Wheat beer (about 4 minutes after a sip) Not for the impatient. If you don't work for it all you can taste are the honey, cream and grain alcohol. The more you roll it around, the heavier the body gets. The burn is sometimes nonexistent and other times feels like icyhot.

    "Nose" (undiluted) A gentle breeze of salt laden sea air, sweet peat, and black licorice/pickled beets. "Palate" (undiluted) Thin, light, sweet sherry that quickly turns grainy. The sherry notes are intertwined with malt and echoes of the tangy licorice and bacon, but they are only echoes. There is some peat and maybe iodine, but it is all very fleeting. "Finish" (undiluted) Ashy like a Matinee cigarette, and then it turns unmistakably bitter, glycerin-like, accompanied by the very slight heat of alcohol. General Impressions This is ok, but nothing like the old Teacher's before the new labeling. I think the reason for this is that corporate ownership has changed and as a consequence one of the key malts has changed: GlenDronach. With that malt absent it just doesn't taste the same.

    Anyone who says the version with the gold circle on label tasted good was right. The new label version now in shops is absolutely NOTHING like the old version. The new version is foul - it has NO peat smell or taste and is a cheap, spirity overly artifically coloured and artificially tasting bland cheap caramel taste laden bottle of swill.

    Gobsmacked at the quality of Teacher's. Now my go to blend along with Black Bottle and sits beside many single malts double the price.

    Simply a well crafted spirit . Blended yes, with the taste of single malted Scotch. Teacher's has made subtle changes over the years to their Highland Cream but the flavor has not been compromised. The smokey chocolate is on the nose and palate and opens to fruity tannins that marvel the tongue. Truly an exceptional blended dram that warms you up on a cold winter's night. And you have more in wallet when the morn greets you.

    Very affordable, and very smooth. I have no complaints about this blended whisky. I'd been looking for something in a peaty smooth whisky, and this, in my opinion, is better than a lot of the more expensive blends out there.

    This is the most complex blended Scotch I have ever tasted. The smokiness and fruity notes compare to other single malts at triple the cost. I will be saving lots of money in the future . Thanks Teachers!

    Wow!!! Just trying this for the first time and I feel sad . I have been drinking single malts for three plus years, and have had the gross misconcept that blends were inferior and lacking. Obviously I was wrong have started delving into blends in the last couple of months, as a result I''m now sad I didn''t give Teachers a shot sooner . It''s amazingly quality never mind the cost !

    Teacher''s, for the price, is one of the best blended scotches out there. Cheaper than the over-priced (yet delicious) Johnnie Walker Black Label, it is a decently smoky, well-blended scotch suitable for a more casual dram when you don''t want to dip into your single-malts. Malty, full-flavoured, substantial smoke from the Ardmore that has a distinct tang to it (rather than a medicinal flavour) - for a blend, it''s solid as hell. Prefer it to other smoky blends like Black Grouse.

    Picked this in Canada. nose: honey, heather, can smell a bit of alcohol bite palate: smooth, iodine, salty,creamy, smoky, grain is very well blended in finish: long and smooth, with lingering effets of smoke, definitely more smoky than peaty. Very good value for money, I would say after tasting many blends recently it tastes much mmore malty than johnnie walker black, which is almost as twice as much. If i tasted this blind it would be very hard to detect this was a blend, thats how well the grain content is interated into this whisky. For the price, there is no other blend better in the category.

    Ok so i know a thing or two about Scotch Whisky and im an Irish man through and through. All i can say is "BUY IT" because this is crackin stuff. Honestly ive been disappointed by blends and malts alike but teachers never lets me down. Dont let the price fool you, teachers is up there!! Put it like this...if Johnny Walker Black was the same price id still buy teachers every time!!

    Of the blended malts this gives the best "bang for your buck" nothing comes near it at the price. Smooth and sophisticated a good example of the blenders art.
