Description

The BenRiach Curiositas uses a heavily peated malted barley as the cereal varietal to produce a unique, fresh, peated expression. This rare peated single malt, from the Heartland of Speyside, has wonderful overtones of peat reek, combined cleverly with a background of fruity, floral, heathery notes and an appealing presence of oak wood in the finish.

Traditionalists believe that peated malts achieve optimum balance of peat-bittersweet and oak infusion after 10 years of maturation. In fact, peated BenRiach is a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century. Curiositas is a distinctive and welcome addition to the Speyside scene – this is a dram to be savoured with a dash of water.

Nose: An explosion of aromatic peat reek, with fragrant hints of honey, fruit and mellow oak.

Colour: Rich amber.

Taste: An avalanche of peat, followed by an extravagant and complex mix of fruit, heather, nuts, oak wood and spices.

Made in Speyside, Scotland.
