This premium blend is one of the highest stature, created in celebration if our founder Wm Teacher. William believed in using a high proportion of single malts in his blends and our Teacher’s Origin has the highest at 65%.
COLOUR: Deep gold with a dusky red tinge.
NOSE: Together with an initial rich malty burst the sweet pear and the apple frangrance seem to mask the drier peat flavour which underlies the multitude of delicious aromas. With a touch of water the fragrant, flowery Speyside and Highland malts come to the fore together with a tang of orange and dried grape sweetness. Circling all these flavours holding them together is the full roundedness of Highland peat smoke.
PALATE: A vast alternating change of tastes varying from immense sweetness to dry slightly tart oakiness with all variations in between, surrounded by the unique liquorice root smokiness from the Ardmore peat. The body on this creation is mouth filling and incredibly rich.
FINISH: Exceptionally long lasting.
