Jim Murray's Whisky Bible: "European Whisky of the Year 2010".
 
As a historical brewery, the Locher family possesses very old oak Beer barrels which have served for decades – and some for more than a century – to store Beer. During their long service, these barrels have soaked up the aroma of Beer, along with the ancient sagas and memories which now enrich this spirit of Appenzeller Säntis Malt. 
 
Santis Cask Strength Peated Whisky is made from malt which was smoked twice over, and is matured in old beer barrels that were smoked with oak wood, something quite special in Whisky production. This causes a strong, smoky aroma of the Whisky.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Dark Amber.
 
Smell / Nose
Aged in oak barrels, and with a subtle aroma of apple-wood smoke, this whisky has a pure, graceful and enticing freshness. Smoked ham, burnt charcoal, peat and malt are present.
 
Taste / Palate
Smoke. Smoked ham. Schlenkerla Bamberg Smokebeer. Black bread. Malty sweetness. The flavour also comprises hints of vanilla, wild berries and prunes. In the background, there’s the merest hint of green figs on the silky texture as well as a subtle touch of phenol.
 
Finish
Gentle, oaky, and wonderfully satisfying bitter touch. Long-lasting finish.
 
Comment:
Different smokiness as we are used by other Whiskies. Extremely impressive.
Ratings & Reviews
Dan
Dan,
On the nose the smoke is certainly noticable, but not overpowering. There is none of the Islay/Laphroaig "band-aid" smell. I got a fairly strong smoky oak, with some sweet vanilla notes. After a while I could pick up smoked meat, dried fruits, and spices. Really great nose. The smoke was moderate on the nose, but really hits hard on the palate. First impression in the mouth was of smoke and ash, with a slight malty sweetness. It has a slick, full mouthfeel. Considering this is over 50% ABV, the heat/burn was minimal, really smooth! But the finish is where this whiskey really shines. It is long and smoky with BBQ, smoked ham, and vanilla tones rounding it out. It just hangs on forever, making you want to go back for more. Overall pretty fantastic!

Did not like this one at all. Smelled like barbecue sauce, and just tasted like liquid smoke.
