I’ve sampled a few malts from the BenRiach range at different Whisky shows, however I’ve never actually bought a bottle for myself to drink. I thought I would change that fact when I saw a bottle of Curiositas at a fairly decent price.

It’s a peated whisky, and as BenRiach have a tendency to do with a lot of their peated malts it has been given a delightful name, which provokes curiosity in itself! Upon giving this dram a smell, the peat is prominent, but you can sense that there is a lot more going on in there!

The taste proves that, as the peat is actually fairly light and gentle, giving way to a bit of vanilla and faint fruit. There’s a short finish to it, but in my opinion it rounds the dram off nicely, making you eager for that next sip!

I really enjoyed this whisky, and I would say it is a good introduction to peat in general!
