Member Reviews and Ratings of BenRiach Curiositas 10 Year Old
A little harsh, even for a 10yr. The peat/smoke is definitely front loaded, with a bit of oaky resin in the finish. Good, but not my favorite.
Smokey, Vanilla, phenols and a hint of sweetness!! Worth a try!!
Balanced peat with honey, vanilla and barley notes.
Quite enjoyable with well balanced peat and flavors of vanilla, honey, light fruit and barley finish. Esp. Impressive for a 10 year old. Price point seems ok. A fine dram for a winter evening by the fire
So smoky, so silky.
A long aftertaste with some barley notes.
Now one of my favorites. Peaty which I love. Will be ordering again and again. Simply outstanding.
Fruity, crisp nose. Not a very strong alcohol taste and kind of bland but drinkable and good flavor.
I found it lacking taste compared to the the other two in the box
Smoky, peaty, and salty in perfect proportions. A hint of vanilla but not overpowering. Very smooth and pleasant.
Nose: caramel, burnt toffee, butterscotch,
Taste: Moist buttery arrival, light smokey and peaty notes, candid fruit. Bottled at 46% some heat on the finish without water. With water and some time a sweetness of some honey vanilla creep in as well as some cereal notes at the top of the glass.
Smoother than expected. Peaty, but not overpowering. Great for an intro to peatier scotch’s
I enjoy peaty Scotch and this was a milder peat to me. It was tasty, with a nice, smooth vanilla/honey finish and a nifty nose of the sea. If Laphroaig or Ardbeg are too peaty for you, then the mildness of this might work for you.
Unique for a speyside. Heavily peated but I feel that it cuts off the other flavors before they can develop
I love me some peat... but it was just ok.
Its good but if you like the peat there are better drams.
Smokey and sweet - nice and rich. A little extra kick from the 46% alcohol content, but it actually complements the flavor. Would never have guessed this was a Speyside - much more like an Islay!
Not something I liked a bit to smoky for me
It's a good scotch. Phenols overwhelms the smoke more than I prefer with a bit of a noticable burn that lasts. The honey does come out great with the smoke and a little vanilla. Overall pretty good for a 10 year.
Apple peel and spice on the nose. Oily and creamy palate with notes of custard and baking spice. I would drink this again.
Tasty, beautiful, well-balanced whisky. Not what I was expecting from a Speyside and surprisingly low price point.
Beautiful peaty taste.
One of my favourite peated malts.
Disgusting! I’ve had better $20 bottles of scotch.
Smokey and good, great finish.
Solid 10 year. Neat smoky start with a vanilla finish.
Smokey, with a good dose of phenols.
Strong peaty - farmy, mineraly
Not balanced sweetness in the taste
too much of a smoke flavor, tastes like someone dropped some liquid smoke into the bottle
Great flavor. Smooth and smokey finish. If you like scotch, this is very pleasant.
Great for the price
Nicely smoky with just enough sweet to notice it; the peat is not over baring at all. Makes for a very nice drink to sip.
Spicy on the first sip, but it smooths out on the second sip. Sweet on the nose with an awesome smokey peat to round it out.
Delicious! The aroma is dominated by honey, and it hits hard on the first sip. It's light on the smoke. A very 'warm' scotch.
