Dram Good Club gets shared… Sharing is caring after all!!
I actually have a bottle of this at home, I bought one late last year after reading Sorren’s review of it, you can find it here on his blog ocdwhisky.com
So a lovely box of goodies arrived on Thursday evening… I say goodies I have only just tried the first one which is a Swiss Whisky from the distillery located in Appenzell. Bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company, time will tell if they all delight my senses!!
This is the Säntis 10 year old bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company batch 1, 51.4% vol. and this is available from Master of Malt for £117.95.
The Säntis is a marriage of three casks; beer, Pinot Noir (wine), and bourbon.
On the nose, initially it was almost a little spirity. Leaving it a while longer a hint of the wine cask starts to reveal itself… alongside dark sugar, then vanilla appears with a bit of sweet apple and spice. I got a teeny bit of raspberry and a drop of cherry too (cherry lips.)
The palate delivered quite a viscous mouthfeel. Oak tannins meet warming spices, and they rest easy against the vanilla and fruit. As you swallow it gives a nice warmth.
The finish is medium length with the wine / woody spices lingering.
I do like this. This was quite an interesting marriage of casks, not overly sweet and the oaky flavours are nice too.
Many thanks to That Boutique-y Whisky Company / Atom Brands et al. for the sample and opportunity to try this.
