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 / Color
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.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Smoke. Smoked ham. Schlenkerla Bamberg Smokebeer. Black bread. Malty sweetness. The flavor 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.
