BENRIACH 10 YEAR OLD Curiositas 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 13192
This 10 year old version, called ‘Curiositas’, perfectly expresses the highly peated character that only the Benriach distillery can give to its malt whisky. Quite surprising for a Speyside single malt!
During two short periods (1975-1976 and 1983-1986), Benriach produced a peated malt whisky that is now distilled on a more regular basis. Benriach offers a large range of peated malt whiskies that vary between 10 and 24 years old. Style: Smoky and liquor

- Appearance : deep gold.
- Nose : rich, powdered, it has distinct notes of peat, earth and liquorice. Spices (curry and cinnamon) and mint follow. Develops lovely herbaceous notes.
- Palate : lively, fatty, it reveals the bitterness of smoky peat and wildflowers (dandelion). Develops into aromas of liquorice and chocolate.
- Overall : rich, concentrated, earthy and liquorice-flavoured, almost oily. Firmly develops into strong and smoky malted barley.
- The brand
Rather unjustly, Benriach was, until just a few years ago, relatively unknown, but it hasn’t ceased to make up for lost time. Indeed, this distillery has, for many decades, had a huge amount to offer and has proven this time and time again since being bought in 2004. Its warehouses are bursting with all sorts of sherry butts (Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez, etc.), new American oak casks, ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads dating back to the 1960s, as well as casks previously used for wine, rum, madeira, port and even Rioja! This Speyside single malt is entirely worthy of the interest it has garnered from master blenders since its creation. Find out more

Un grand Whisky, à peine fumé sans masquer les parfums.

Au coin du feu Ce délicieux Benriach, gentiment fumé, doux et tendu à la fois me donne envie de retrouver les frimas de l'hiver. A déguster au coin du feu, après une belle journée de ski... Superbe !

un de mes whiskies préférés A la dégustation, ce whisky apparaît d'emblée savoureux, profond, et bien vite tourbé, réglissé, faisant penser beaucoup plus à un Highland du nord, voire à un Islay. La finale, moyennement longue, est vive et iodée. C'est une magnifique réussite que je préfère personnellement, avec son côté droit et franc, aux versions plus sophistiquées jouant sur des notes de porto ou de vieux rhum.
