Santis Edition Dreifaltigkeit, 52%

Price: $84.00 Issue: Winter 2011 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

If you're looking for a radically different tasting malt whisky to anything else you know, start here. This is all Christmas church incense, burnt treacle toffee, charcoal, and overdone barbecued meat. Weird? Multiply by five and you're getting there. But I took this to a two-day music festival for 25-35 year olds, and of the 20 world whiskies on show, this was one of the most requested. €62
