BenRiach 10 Year Old Curiositas Single Malt Whisky

The Benriach Distillery was founded in 1898 by John Duff, a serial entrepreneur within the whisky industry. Having pursued whisky adventures at home and abroad, John decided that the best place to build his new distillery would be on a small hill, or ‘Ben’ at the site of the old ‘Riach’ farm, in the north of Speyside. Benriach was born.
Although the rough-hewn walls of Benriach’s warehouses may seem unassuming, they are home to a rare breed of creative expertise in whisky distilling and eclectic cask maturation. It is where their ingenious and dedicated team spend their days crafting their award winning Speyside single malts, tirelessly pushing the limits of flavour possibility.

Curiositas is a 10 year old, peated release from the BenRiach distillery in what they call the 'classic Speyside style'. A distinct Single Malt with great depth and balance.

    Nose:    Sweet grassy malt, succulent fudge and hints of smoke and heather lead. There's a touch of malmsey underneath with fragrant honey and mellow oak.

    Taste:    Caramelised sugar and strong cereal flavours form the core. Marshmallows, ripe stone fruit and a warm nuttiness develop while peppery spice tingles in the backdrop with green wood smoke.

    Finish:    Bittersweet with slight suggestions of dry oak, beeswax and fennel.
