It is said that William Teacher would not give his name to his blend until he had found perfection. Highland Cream was that whisky. At 45% it has one of the highest single malt contents of any blend and uses fully peated Ardmore whisky as it’s fingerprint malt. The combination is incredible depth and smoothness combined with a rich smokey undertones. Truely a masterpiece.
Color – Rich Amber with yellow gold highlights Rich Amber with yellow gold highlights
Nose – 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.
Body – Full of depth and substance.
Palate – 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.
Finish – Well balanced with a clean busy flavoured fullness that ends with a slow fading of flavours.
