Curiositas is the hugely popular 10 year-old peated malt from the recently-revitalised Benriach distillery. One of the few overtly peated Speyside malts, and definitely one to try for phenol fans.

    Love this whisky, but the new bottle has removed the statement of "Non-Chill Filtered Natural Color". Wonder if the distillery is preparing to chill filter this version in the future.

    It's a nice whiskey - peaty and smoky, but well balanced.

    Tried the 46% ABV. Oily on the legs, which run quickly because of the higher alcohol strength, but are slow to start. Nose - smokey, malty, fudge, slightly citrus, bitter but sweet. Background fruitiness. Either first fill or new wood American White Oak. Slightly resinous. Although smokey it is not strongly so, would suggest distillation reduces it. Probably low teen ppm on the spirit. Palate - initially sweet, slightly fruity, caramelised sugar, smokey, malty, bread. Finish - medium, smoke fades quickly, replaced by biscuity flavour. Conclusion - a fairly nice peated malt.

    Very nice

  • Tim H 10 April 2013

    Tried this last night At At a Benriach tasting and was pleasantly surprised. Not by a "peaty Speysider" because they've been around awhile, but by the overall balance, roundness, drinkability, and the "size" Of It for a mere 40%! That said, I would love To try it at 46 or even 50%.

  • claues, sweden 28 August 2010

    hii think this is absolutly fantastic, gentle but very peaty not salty like islay whisky. this is my favorite whisky

  • Drammy Paul 16 May 2010

    Packs a punch but not so much on the peaty side. Strong cereal flavours with a hint of marshmallow vanilla (luckycharms?) Agree with the beeswax. Unique but a bit too sharp and unbalanced for my Islay palate.

  • Aussi_Sheragh 28 January 2010

    To me it is a masterpiece with a smoke of white choclate flavour !!!

    Got a bottle of this after the praise it received from Mr. Murray and was quite let down by it. A rather thin, watery and one-dimensional malt, nothing much going on here except peat and leather. In a way reminds me of an Islay malt gone bad after too much oxidization.

  • Peter Benkoczki 13 October 2009

    If you like the Islay-peated malt,s than give this a try. Peat it is, but not from the sea-shore, but from a forest. Very fine malt, one negative: not too long finish.

    This is a peated malt. My wife could not stand it (so it is not a girly dram).The palate is very interesting with acacia honey and a note of beeswax. Some fruity notes too. The palate really balances the peaty nose.For me it is 90/100.

    A gentle hint of TCP ! My love of peated whisky frowned upon by my good friend John - however he bought this for my 45th birthday. It's truely caught my attention , I now need to go through the years !More to come me thinks !
