You can't go wrong with Teachers
Teacher's Highland Cream
Also from Teachers Branded Whisky
Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… Teacher's Highland Cream whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Teacher's Highland Cream whiskey, instead of whisky.
Teacher's Bottling Note
A very famous blended whisky, a rather good blend too. Jim Murray awarded Teacher's Highland Cream 90 points in his Whisky Bible.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.
Can be dispatched within 24 hours.
The nose is fruity and well malted with gentle sweetness. Some smoke and a touch of honey. The mouth feel is quite big with a supple maltiness and the vaguest whisper of muted peat. The finish is well fruited with toffee, malt and a faint hint of smoke.
Really great blend
Smooth, spicy, fruity and slightly,slightly smoky.
Contains 45% of malt whisky (Ardmore).

just tasted Jameson, Teachers and Ballantine's.
Teachers got the most complicated taste. Not too sweet, very slightly smoky.

This is by far my favourite of the readily available budget blends. Subtle smoke and peat. Deserves a place in every whisky cabinet (at least the cabinets of those of us who need to pace our spending), though in all honesty I think I'd still drink Teacher's if I were a rich man.

very spicy and creamy

Aroma very alcoholic, something sweet on the palate and dry final. You might get different than the original since I bought it at an Argentine market, and the bottle is not bottled in Scotland, is fractioned in Argentina. I hope the test bottle bottled at source to compare.

More than a whisper...
A good friend....
There is far more than a "whisper" of peat in Teacher's. While it isn't overpowering you don't have to quiet the crowd to taste it. I'm new to scotch and am looking to develop a taste for peat which, initially, I found off-putting. This is just enough for me, as I think I'm starting to appreciate it.
Dare I say, a nice introduction to scotch for those who don't want to spend $100 and find they are no fan of peat.

If you are looking for an outstanding Scotch whisky that is an affordable daily pleasure, also delicious, here it is. Smooth, full-flavored, some nice peaty honeyed smoke, this makes the taste buds and olfactory sense very happy. And did I mention it costs but a pittance? Whether neat, with water or as a relaxing beverage over ice, Teacher's is outstanding. It is also a great compliment to a nice cigar.

careful what bottles you get...
My personal experience with Teacher's has been a good one over the years. It has enough edginess to stand out yet enough smoothness to be pleasant. Also there is just the right amount of depth and, lets say, a robust elegance. I feel this is good, honest and fairly uncompromised whiskymaking.

Very inconsistent. Varies from bottle to bottle almost. Some is decent to good, some is just undrinkable. If you get the drinkable stuff well that's decent enough to buy it. It's a decently rich and smokey blended whiskey, shame it's so inconsistent.

I have been a loyal consumer of Teachers for many years, but no longer will be. I have just purchased a another bottle after a string of duds to be confirmed it is not what it used to be. In its former glory was a perfectly suited everyday sipper. Now it tastes like cheap grain whisky. It reminds me of J&B rare(raw!!)
I really like some. I really hate others. I go for Black Bottle now!
When knocked back with a little water to open the flavour, the overwhelming smoky after taste draws forth in most expressions. Nose is fruity and young, early taste is reminiscent of young oak barrels with no real body to the whisky. The grassy/peaty overtones in the nose and first taste, with the smoky finish will trick inexperienced or narrow thinking whisky drinkers into thinking its classy. It's inconsistent between bottles and painting by numbers, even at the price. There is better, more challenging blends to enjoy at this price point

I am new to whisky but I like whisky. So on a scale of 10 this would be a 5 or so. Why? If I had to choose from blends Chivas would outwin this by a few point. Nevertehless this tastes a lot better for me than JW red. Nice light smoke but ,no fruit for me, on the nose, delightfull creamy caramel toned with vanilla on the palette and a bit spicy aftertaste in the finish. Hmmmm...from the expirience I have till now JackD wins but this is also a good option.
I'll give it a 4 out of 5, or 80 out of 100...
Now I use a different rating system compared to many, including chaps like Ralfie (whom I have utmost respect for) and I should add as a disclaimer I'm not a whisky connoisseur so don't take my word for it but compared to a malt like Glenmorangie, Dalwhinnie, Lagavulin or something of that character then it doesn't hold it's own but...... it's a very pleasant sip for the price, and I'd recommend it to chaps like myself who need to conserve costs whilst enjoying the scotch.
beautiful peat , smooth , touch of smoke ,fruity , well balanced scotch I'm a big fan and I love the price as well .
Best of the value blends. You can pick up a bottle of this for £13 most weeks in one of the supermarkets.
