Whisky Reviews for Säntis Malt Edition Säntis
13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.22 points
N: Like a sherried blend with a high malt content, it’s all quite thin yet everything appears to be present and correct. I get on the nose, perfumed beer, Grandma’s soap, some old umami stuff, faint fruity creasote, soft raspberry leaf tea, grapefruit, long-kept wine and boot polish.
T: A pokey, fruity and dusty old sherried number with a soft 70’s blend vibe.
F: With more of that 70’s vibe, it’s papery with sugar icing and dusty oak oils. Not totally surprisingly, the beer casks work but then they didn’t appear to depart any ale.
C: Forget Swiss precision, this is more a sourced old [>tired], yet wacky/interesting Scotch where enjoyment easily outweighs score.Scores a C-
- That's the herbal ointment that Uwe Ochsenknecht is so desperately searching for! Probably out of local patriotism, I have this drop but probably a little too high, had to correct the current tasting a right piece down ... yes, this treacherous sweetness ...
Herbs, a little minty, somehow a shot too sweet
light herbal liqueur
leathery, herbaceous and at the same time strangely sweet; Peaches from the tin can
- Something different and highly recommended
Herbs, honey, light yeast
Herbs in the foreground, oak, a little caramel, yeast is slightly more intense than in the nose
Herbs fly away and there is a slight taste of tobacco on the tongue
Has a typical smell initially; opens with a sour beer smell. So it takes some getting used to. Then some malty, light fruit (apple).
Also strange first sip, has some chemical and is watery (lacking body), with rolling around in the mouth wood tones come forward; gives a warm and spicy taste after swallowing; lingers at the top of the palate.
- The best Swiss so far.
First herbs, like in a sage Ricola, then lots of honey.
First some woody, then herbs, as with the Ipalat tablets, then a little spice.
Again, many herbs that stay in the mouth for a long time.
Wow, very spirity. Lavandre, roses. Dare I say wodka-like? But it's different, very smooth and therefor acceptable
Very smooth. Bit boring. Again the lavandre, But no body at all.
