BenRiach - Peated 'Curiositas' 10 Year OldSpeyside Malt Whisky
Nose. Arbroath smokies that have spent longer than usual in the reek, beautiful citrus and crystal clear malt underpin the chunkiness.
Taste. Mesmerising, succulent malt that simply melts on the taste-buds, enormously sweet, yet the balance is contained by deft oak, mouth watering barley and a swift volley of peppering spices.
Finish. Long, and keeps in shape - just so clean, with vanilla and a hint of cocoa adding singing in harmony to the peaty tune with near perfect bitter sweet for good measure.
