Well balanced. Though peaty it doesn't have the marine phenolics usually encountered on the coast.
Curiositas Peated Malt, Aged 10 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Raffia/weetabix to start then dry wood smoke/charred sticks. With water a cooked vegetable note and old trainers.
Palate: Sweet oak when neat. Lightly nutty with a hint of smoke. Water maintains the balance.
Finish: Long and lightly smoky.
Comment: Well balanced. Though peaty it doesn't have the marine phenolics usually encountered on the coast.
Nose: Intense. Old parmigiano. Medlars. Then becoming creamier, molasses toffee with a hint of burnt coffee. A touch of sultanas.
Palate: Sweet, velvety. Sticky toffee pudding. Smoky (burnt wood and dry ashes). Getting quite peppery.
Finish: Warm, dry, rather long. Tabasco. A minty touch.
Comment: Quite a nice dram but a bit edgy.
