With 46% ABV, no chill-filtration and natural color, BenRiach 10 Curiositas is a craft presentation of a peated Speysider. On the nose, you get hay, fresh herbs and a punch of peat smoke with bitter honey and faint saltiness. The arrival is strong and mouth warming, turning more aromatic and distantly sweet in the development. However, it also tastes a bit young and rough. Dry peat smoke with a touch of oak cask bitterness characterizes the rather weak finish. To conclude, it's a decent 'peated alternative' but without the caliber of an Islay Single Malt.

Nose

Mein erster Eindruck ist süße Aprikosenmarmelade. Darüber kräftiger Rauch mit einer guten Portion Asche aber auch Lagerfeuer. Dann wird er frischer, in Richtung Birne.

Taste

Kräftiger aromatischer Antritt auf der Zunge mit viel Rauch und etwas Eiche. Weniger fruchtig als die Nase. Dafür etwas süßer.

Finish

Eher kurz, aber der Rauch bleibt lange im Rachen stehen.

85 points. Deep, woody, herbal yet sweet. Stunning value-for-money ratio: 30 € for an unchillfiltered, properly aged peated whisky from quality casks, including quite a bit of sherry, judging from the (all natural) color.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

coal smoke, iodine, cow dung, lavender, apples. very simple nose (that does not mean unpleasant)

Taste

very peaty, citrus fruits, salt, vanilla, malt and some nuts and poppy seeds in the very background. simple but good.

Finish

medium, still peaty

Comments

don´t drink this after you´ve had an older malt that´s matured and complex. it will be no pleasure but it´s a reasonable dram as a starter.
