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.
