BenRiach Curiositas 10 Year Old
The peaty version of Benriach, harking back to the 19th century style of Speyside whisky.
Benriach distillery makes an interesting range of whiskies, with many excellent cask finishes and different age statements available.
The Curiositas 10 Year Old is one of the distillery's peaty whiskies, made in a style which would have been common on Speyside in the 19th century.
On the nose and palate the peat reek is pretty powerful, but there is a balancing honey sweetness, and the finish has notes of oak to add complexity.
