'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

    For the price, I don’t think it can be beat. Closest competition is Black Grouse at nearly twice the price, or perhaps Ballentine’s Finest. But the peat notes give it an advantage for me. The finish isn’t the most satisfying. But that is to be expected for a whisky at this price point. Solid choice for an “every day” dram.

    Alright for the money. I'd like it more, but I really dislike the finish/after taste. But for $15, not as terrible as it could be, but I probably won't be buying it again, or even finishing the bottle any time soon.

    Best blend I have tried to date. And at $30 for a 1.75, I'm happy.

    Best entry-level whiskey, better than Johnny Walker or Dewars. Added bonus is the peat and surprisingly small taste... My go-to entry level for sure

    I wanted to correct the review of the previous gentlemem who wrote that this whisky has 45% Barley used in it, it actually has 51% and that's the minimum for any scotch whisky, anything lower than that it's not legal Scotch whisky. Taste wise its very smooth and best to drink it neat, you taste the oils and has that rich taste, will bite a little but settles pleasantly. I'm guessing blends must come from slightly newer distileries in Scotland as the flavour is not overwhelming compared to older scotch whisky brands like Johnny walker and Chivas which have heavier aftertaste experience. Peat is just an added bonus to an already flavourful whisky. Cheers!

    In my opinion and for my taste, this is the best of the 'entry-level' blended Scotches. I would generally consider Johnny Walker Black to be sort of a standard or benchmark for quality among blended Scotches, but this actually comes close to it for a fraction of the price. Obviously it doesn't have the age of Johnny Walker Black which is 12 years old, but it in terms of malt flavour and peat it is similar; Teacher's actually contains approximately 45% malt whisky with is among the highest in blended whiskies compared to the typical 20 to 30 percent that is used. I am guessing this blend is not much older than the minimum 3 years old and is probably especially well-suited for highballs and mixing, but I respect the fact that they don't seem to use much caramel colour to try to indicate that it is older than it is. I have had this whisky in the USA also where it is bottled at 43% ABV and I will say that that version is a bit richer and better. But I digress.

    Smooth and malty – my favourite blended scotch. Great pricing as well here in India where taxation on liquour is extremely high.

    Not the same as it used to be. Variable quality. Latest bottle was drinkable but has lost the creamy smooth mouthfeel. Will be my last bottle. Shame, was my favourite blend.

    A great, all-round blended Scotch as far as blended Scotch goes. Not much on the nose but the taste is a classic blend – smooth finish with an explosion of subtle peat and smoke towards the end. Very impressed with this. 4 star as I prefer my single malts, but feel this could stand up to one such as Talisker Skye.

    This is my favorite everyday blend by far, next contender being thrice the price and/or a single malt.

    Very pleased this scotch. I thought it tasted like a very mild Laphroaig. Very very good blended whiskey.

    It was a pleasant surprise. This stuff is easily drinkable. Did not feel like a general low-end blend. With such an affordable price, this stuff is the best thing to buy among the low-end blends. It can also fool the more experienced connoisseurs and pass as a high end drink in a blind test.

    Liked this very much. Tried it due to retail. Been drinking Ballantine & Famous Grouse. Drink Bells when overseas. This is better than all. Funny thing, Teachers used to be sold in USA in printed bottle sort of like returnable soda bottles. Picked up an old Teachers round printed pint from a recently improved ditch some years ago as a curiosity, but had never bought the whisky. Glad I did! Old bottle is cooler than present but really what's inside is what counts!
