William Teacher’s sons started blending a whisky for their own shops and demand led to the creation of the now famous ‘Teacher’s Highland Cream’ brand in 1884. (The established 1830 date on the bottle refers to when Wm Teacher & Sons Ltd was established.)
Interestingly Teacher's claims to be the first whisky to use a ‘self opening’ bottle (without the use of a corkscrew) in the 1910s and to have invented the jigger cap in the 1960s.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 23/12/2012
Clear, light bright golden.
Malty grain with vanilla, butterscotch and nubuck leathery apple juice. Faint perfumed floral aromas.
Pronounced smoky peat, malty nubuck leather and tobacco leaf with light cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Persistent malty, lightly smoky finish. Fabulous value for money.
