Interesting fact… BenRiach Curiositas 10 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be BenRiach Curiositas 10 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Sublimely medicinal, sweet grassy asphalt and heather. Hints of malmsey.
Palate: At once sweet and heavily smoked. Peppery spice tingles, iodine, a warm nuttiness.
Finish: Bittersweet, dry wood, creosote and phenol, and fennel, in fact.
This is a great dram, with an amazing smoke in the nose as well as in the palate. Finish is absolutely incredibile with chewy smoke leaving on a tongue an impression of white chocolate. Buy it at once!!!
Agree with previous reviewer that this a great whisky for the price. The nose reminds me of the classic Lagavulin 16, and the palette doesn't dissapoint with a lingering finish
If you're a fan of highland park, or the dalwhinnie, and are looking for something with more smoke, this is the dram for you, truly wonderful.
