BenRiach Curiositas $99.99

The BenRiach Distillery is located in the 'Heart of Speyside', between the village of Rothes and the town of Elgin, in the North-East of Scotland. They Spey Valley, in which the BenRiach Distillery was built by John Duff in 1898, is home to many of Scotland's great whiskies, but BenRiach has its own uniqueness borne from the particular methods and skills of the men who craft the whisky, the ingredients they use, the distinctive copper stills and the high quality barrels selected for maturation.

And, BenRiach boasts one further difference - standing apart from the other Spey Valley distilleries, the traditional floor maltings with their distinctive pagoda style chimneys can produce peated, malted barley, enabling the distillery to capture the defining taste of peat reek in a few of their special bottlings.

Curiositas uses a heavily peated malted barley as the cereal varietal to produce a unique, fresh, peated expression.

This rare peated single malt, from the Heartland of Speyside, has wonderful overtones of peat reek, combined cleverly with a background of fruity, floral, heathery notes and an appealing presence of oak wood in the finish. Traditionalists believe that peated malts achieve optimum balance of peat-bittersweet and oak infusion, after 10 years of maturation.

In fact peated BenRiach is a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century. Curiositas is a distinctive and welcome addition to the Speyside scene – this is a dram to be savoured with a dash of water.
