- Benriach 10 Year Old Curiositas Peated
BenRiach 10 Year Old Curiositas Peated Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Distilled using heavily peated malt barley the result is a return to the original Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century.
Nose: An explosion of aromatic peat reek, with fragrant hints of honey, fruit and mellow oak.
Taste: An avalanche of peat, followed by an extravagant and complex mix of fruit, heather, nuts, oak wood and spices.
BenRiach Single Malt Whiskey
Benriach Distillery in 1898 just south of Elgin complete with a siding connecting it directly to the great North of Scotland Railway. But Benriach was forced to close in 1900 and remained closed until 1965 and whilst its traditional floor maltings continued to operate complete with the pagoda roof over the malt kiln it too finally closed in 1999. Having re-opened in 2004 the Benriach range is now extensive and features age expressions beginning with Benriach 10 years, 16 Year Old and vintage cask releases running back to the 1970s. The distillery is owned by Brown Forman of America.
