It is said that William Teacher would not give his name to his blend until he had found perfection. Highland Cream is that whisky. It uses fully smoked peat single malt whisky from The Ardmore distillery as its fingerprint whisky. This gives it incredible depth and smoothness combined with a rich smokey undertone. Truly a masterpiece.
William Teacher was a man of self-belief. Over 175 years ago he perfected his famous blend with high smoky peated malt giving it a rich flavour.
A deep and robust maltiness shows through at the very start that is accompanied by a gentle Highland peat smoke tang. This full flavour slowly fades to allow the sweeter fruitier flavours of apples, pears and heavy honey maturity to show through.
There is a challenging and exciting taste that at the same time is round and warming. This superb flavour is full of rich malts and maturity that slowly fades to a silky rounded texture.
Well balanced with a clean busy flavoured fullness that ends with a slow fading of flavours.
Rich amber with yellow gold highlights.
Full of depth and substance.
