Reference in the title comes from the movie Birdman. Even though Säntis has a bear on the label. Säntis Malt Edition Dreifaltigkeit (aka Trinity) is cask strength and amazing. If you ever run into it, try it, I beg you!
Strongly peaty and smoky, matured in beer casks. Very unique whisky and bit weird, but still amazing. Trippy, like Birdman.
Nose: Truly fascinating – like the German smoky beer called Schlenkerla Rauchbier, Cold smoked mettwurst or ham. Sweetness and spices, cinnamon with spicy sherry and peat. Touch of malted dark bread.
Taste: Delicately warm and spicy. Soft oils and sweetness with wee dryness also. Ham/mettwurst, malted barley, ale and peat. Some fruits too, oranges being the main fruit. Strong, yet smooth.
Finish: Bit dry, like bitter ale with sweet caramel. Red grapefruits rise after some time in the glass.
Balance: Great smoky single malt from Switzerland!
