Benriach 10 Years Curiositas

The heavily peated Benriach Curiositas shows a thick cloud of smoke. After the smoke is gone you find some smoothness and sweetness that is being replaced by spices. The finish comes with a bit of peat smoke again and a slight bitterness.

With 46% ABV, no chill-filtration and natural color, BenRiach 10 Curiositas is a craft presentation of a peated Speyside Single Malt. On the nose, you get hay, fresh herbs and a punch of peat smoke with bitter honey and faint saltiness. The peaty arrival is strong and mouth warming, turning aromatic and distantly sweet in the development. However, it also tastes slightly harsh and youngish. Dry peat smoke with some wood cask bitterness characterizes the rather weak finish. To conclude, it's a decent peated whisky but it doesn't have the caliber of Islay malts.
