Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

    Good but...

    I'm a new fan of peated scotch (since a year or so).
    One of my favorite is Lagavulin 12 or Bowmore 12. This one is a bit too medicinal for me. However, with a few drops of water, it dissipate that taste and I really enjoy it. Number 3 of my top ten peated scotch.

    I bought a bottle of Curiositas yesterday 12_27_14 and its 46% If it was 40 I would'nt have bought it! Any way its one of the best bottles of the year! The price was $65.00 though.I like it over laphroaigh and ardbeg! I think a non peat drinker could like this. I like the subtle sweet nutty taste along with the smoke!

    All at once medicinal yet sweet, light yet full, rich but still still clean. A sheer delight.

    It may be inexpensive, but it's not cheap

    Peaty, smoky on the nose, oily and rich on the palate, spicy long finish - there's also some subtle sweetness that reveals itself slowly. Much to enjoy in here - but you must like peated whiskies really to get the benefit.

    Отличный солод! Прекрасная цена за по настоящему хороший копчёный виски! Довольно мягкий насыщенный, хороший баланс дыма и ёда = отличный пример копчёного материкового виски !+++

    Surprising from nose to finish

    This is one of my personal favorites, first sipped in Granton-on-Spey, last dram of the night... and what a dram it was. The nose has a deceptively strong sense of peat and smoke, but it is not as strong as you would think once it hits your palate, it becomes a juxtaposition of sweet and smoke, and the finish lingers well after your done. I love that the taste totally surprises in comparison to the nose, a good and unique whisky.

    Great flavor great value

    I'm thoroughly impressed by this wizzo. I've had plenty of peated scotch but at the cost of the Curiositas nothing comes close. Well at least not a the outlet I purchase from.

    Just great

    A nose full of fresh and sweet hospital

    I just had to laugh out loud while trying this dram and reading the label that states it is "particularly unusual for a Speyside malt". I disagree with Mymic that this is something Dalwhinnie or Highland Park people might enjoy. To me it is simply a unique palate of acquired tastes that combines more nastiness then any peated Islands whisky I've tried before. Love it though

    Don't appreciate the donwngrade!

    Books and their covers

    You know what they say. This packaging is pretty tired. Needs a refresh like my grandma's kitchen... but no one can cook like her... no one. For the price, this is a damn good dram. It's a Speyside by nature, but I swear I taste some lowland grass along side it's obvious Islay peat. Not sure this one 'belongs' to any Scottish region. Maybe it's just "Scottish" That'll do pig.

    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.

    28th January 2013


    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

    24th May 2012


    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!!!
