Whisky reviews for Schwenker 2005 SaW

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.67 points.

  1. XorLophaX scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: 86/100 points - "nice daily dram". The "Schwenker Edition 1" from Saar-Whisky convinces with its smoky bacon basic character. Here you get a delicious whisky that strongly reminds of the Laphroaig PX-Cask, but with less fullness and a total of round and "soft-rinsed".

    • Nose
      A pretty smoky-bacony basic character. Sea salt and a pronounced sweetness complete the whole thing. Slight notes of plums in the background.
    • Taste
      Starts slightly alcoholic and slightly tart. If the alcohol is gone a nice, smoky whisky remains. Has something from Laphroaig, but also a lot from Lagavulin. Some tart wood and tar towards the end.
    • Finish
      Pretty long smoky-sweet finish, discreetly in the background some dark chocolate, cocoa and mocha.
