BenRiach is back!

BenRiach 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky...$44.99
Bottled at 43% vol, the BenRiach 10 Years Old is Classic Speyside in character. The cask formula focuses on ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks – exactly the types of wood we favour at BenRiach. This fresh, lively, fruit-laden single malt captures warm oak spices, green apple, dried apricots, peach and banana with sublte touches of aniseed, loemon zest and barley.
NOSE:  A fresh and lively combination of crisp, green orchard fruits, stem ginger and hints of tangerine mellows to creamy vanilla with a delicate note of mint and a gentle twist of citrus, all held together with a sweet barley back note.
TASTE:  Warm toasted oak spices flood through green apple skins and dried apricots, ripening to hints of peach and soft banana. Subtle touches of aniseed and lemon zest create a contrasting edge to the fruit and add an intriguing character to the long, crisp barley finish.

BenRiach Curiositas 10 Year Old Peated Single Malt...$49.99
The BenRiach CURIOSITAS uses a heavily peated malted barley as the cereal varietal to produce a unique, fresh, peated expression. This rare peated single malt, from the Heartland of Speyside, has wonderful overtones of peat reek, combined cleverly with a background of fruity, floral, heathery notes and an appealing presence of Oak wood in the finish.  Traditionalists believe that peated malts achieve optimum balance of peat-bittersweet and oak infusion after 10 YEARS of maturation. In fact, peated BenRiach is a return to the ORIGINAL Speyside character and flavour of malts typical of the nineteenth century. Curiositas is a distinctive and welcome addition to the Speyside scene – this is a dram to be savoured with a dash of water.46% ABV
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.
