'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

    "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.

    Best NAS blend by far, and I've tried most of them. Love a good Islay, especially in the winter. But in summertime, I like something a tad less phenolic. I used to be in love with Black Bottle, but a couple of years ago they totally ruined (I mean, "reblended" it). So now I'm back to Teacher's for summer Scotch, for economy Scotch, and for anything after my second dram of an evening.

    I have had a part used bottle of this for some time and never drunk any. I used it for people that wanted a scotch with a mixer. I just thought I would give it a try. I was just so suprised just how good it was. Not a lot of nose and the taste does not linger but for the money. well worth a try at this price. I am going to buy some more blended to try.

    For the price this is perhaps the finest blended Scotch on the market. It really stands out for not being overly sweet and possessing the flavours that to me really define Scotch; fruitiness, smoke and peat. Teacher's is a throwback to the days before single malts when blended Scotch whiskies all had there own recognizable character and weren't necessarily made just for mixing.

  • 3 November 2012

    Amazingly good for the price! Got a litre bottle for £18. Big Islay influence here, mild peat and woodsmoke aftertaste but doesn't linger. this whisky was made for swirling in the mouth! Just the right amount of heat, sweet, very smooth. But don't like the nose! Too chemical and not defined enough. But Full of character, blows Grants and Bells right out of the water! Superb "economy" whisky

    "Palate": The taste is sea salt, smoke, very faint peat and iodine with a bacon/malt backbone. This is a heavy scotch in the mouth, and many enjoy rolling it around a bit before swallowing. Anise, black licorice and lots of malt round this blend out. "Finish": Lingering sea salt, dulse, malt and a faint echo of peat.

    A good value for money. A dense, balanced, fruity, medium sweet and deliciously peaty blend. You can really taste the Ardmore here. This one could be so much more, but we all know they just won't do it...
