Compass Box Flaming Heart 2018 Release Blended Malt 70cl
A limited release bottling of 15,050 bottles which were bottled in June 2018. This is their sixth edition of Flaming Heart, a whisky inspired by a rock song.
Here again they combine the rich, bold spiciness of malt whisky aged in heavy toasted oak barrels with the evocative smoke of the heavy peated Islay malt whisky. The components are from a range of ages that provides depth and complexity.
The combination yields a flavour profile like no other in Scotch Whisky; big, bold, hauntingly smoky, but with an alluring ethereal sweetness that calls you back to the glass. In this 2018 edition they have reintroduced a subtle Sherry cask influence that adds an additional layer of complexity and richness. This is a touch they have used for Flaming Heart only once before, back in the 2012 edition. But do not worry the signature Flaming Heart signature style remains the same.
