Teacher’s single malt comes from the Ardmore distillery founded by the Teachers family themselves back in 1898. It is the last Highland distillery to still fully peat it’s malted barley giving it a rich complex taste. But the secret of its depth of character comes from the secondary maturation the whisky enjoys in tiny ‘Quarter Casks’.
These barrels were common over a century ago, but are rarely found these days. The additional contact with the oak creates a deep powerful flavour profile with an extraordinary long finish.
At bottle strength the influence of the two styles of maturation casks compliment each other producing a full bodied smooth aroma. The maturity that shows through comes from the American barrels and the spicy creamy nose from the old style smaller casks.
Full and rich but with a subtle gentleness.
At bottle strength the full rich flavours burst and fill the mouth a creamy peat tang and a touch of vanilla’s soft gentleness. If a touch of water is added then the flavours increase with the addition of a sweet ripe fruit start followed but the tang of peat.
Full, succulent and quite long. The full bodied smoothness can be best appreciated at bottling strength but with a touch of water the full complexity can be recognized.
