Curiositas is a 10 year old, peated release from the BenRiach distillery in what they call the 'classic Speyside style'. A distinct malt with great depth and a bittersweet balance.
Grassy malt and honeyed apple, with a good whack of oak-rich smoke developing underneath.
Palate: Still packing a handsome combination of fresh apple and soft smoke, now with a hint of heather in the background.
Finish: Waxy peels, coriander and pepper, wrapped up in cinder toffee.
