Whisky Reviews for BenRiach Curiositas
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.13 points
- This is a great peated whisky from BenRiach and in time will go down as a classic.
- Nose: Peat, sort of dusty peat, underneath sits some wood and ,also some fruity notes (cherubs).
Palate: Sweetness of the barley, and fruit is well integrated with the massive peat and some spices (cinnamon,pepper). The palate is really nice, and much sweeter than the nose suggests. Lovely Mix.
Finish: Long, with long lasting peat, wee wood, and some cocoa/coffee bitterness, intertwined with the sweeter sugary notes of barley.
Bottom line :
a very enjoyable peated Speysider. Not Ultra Complex, and the nose could use a bit more Oomph and style. however the palate and finish make up for it.
I seem to like those BernRiachs. Well made, and at a good price point.
Who said good peated malts can only be found on Islay?
Smoky peat, fruity, flowery, heather
Balanced, bittersweet, peat smoke, oak
Medium long, oak, smoke
- Lacked a bit of strenght. Good price/quality ratio nonetheless.
- This was a presant off the kids. A wonderfull peaty malt. I do love the peaty ones
Nice and smokey with wet moss and heather
Thick with peat and feels oily in the mouth
Vanilla on the finishing line makes this malt a classic
