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. Rich amber color. An explosion of aromatic peat reek, with fragrant hints of honey, fruit and mellow oak. An avalanche of peat, followed by an extravagant and complex mix of fruit, heather, nuts, oak wood and spices.

Golden in the glass, this bracing Speyside single malt opens with peat smoke and vanilla on the nose and palate. The smoke doesn't overwhelm; peat and iodine mingle with hints of dark chocolate, clove, black pepper and spearmint, plus a mouthwatering saline hint and slightly astringent finish.
