BenRiach 10 Curiositas Peated Malt 46%

colour: honey/gold.
nose: peat, sweetness, toffee, citrus, grassy, malt, background smoke.
palate: sweet, peaty, smokey, gentle tongue buzz.
finish: peat, sweet toffee, crisp malt, grassy, good smoke, citrus and oak, medium-long finish.

notes: this is quite nice, peat & smoke tangle with toffee, grasses, citrus & oak (a worthy marriage of 2 styles) it’s sweet with good smoke, interesting & worth a try if one likes peat/smoke…. the 46% doesn’t overpower in any way either.
My first dram but it made me pay attention and I’ll give it a ‘thumbs up’, if you are looking for something interesting and have not tried this malt, give it a go.
