Our founder William ‘Old Thorough’ Teacher would, we believe, be proud of this exceptional whisky. It has, as he would have insisted, an exceptionally high proportion of single malts, each chosen for their sublime character. All of the whisky is of course at least 25 years old. The result of such a long maturation is a whisky of sublime character and smoothness.
Befitting such an extraordinary whisky it has been packaged in a unique ceramic bottle, each one individually numbered. Truly a whisky for the chosen few.
At natural strength the immediate aroma is of spice and fruit, a trace of cinnamon and possibly nutmeg that encapsules the peach and sweet orange creaminess that has just a hint of lemon backing.
With a trace of water the whisky opens to a multitude of additional flavours that gives the whisky a magnificent complexity. The mix of soft red apples, spice and a touch of sherbet are strengthened by the distinct tang of highland peat that then finishes with a soft creamy caramel sweetness.
The vast complexity is well balanced by the rich sweetness.
Again without water the taste is round, smooth and soft with touches of spices, fruit and peat smoke.
Just a touch of water allows the mass of fruit and many soft spice flavours to develop. This slowly fades into the tang of smokey peat that is well balanced by the nutty creamy oak flavours.
Initially sweet but fades into a surprising dryness that allows the smoke to linger on for ages.
