BenRiach Curiositas Single Malt 10 yo
A peat lover's dream dram!
From the Peated BenRiach Range- Curiositas, Birnie Moss, and Authenticas use 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.
COLOR: Rich amber
PALATE: An avalanche of peat, followed by an extravagant and complex mix of fruit, heather, nuts, oak wood and spices.
