Compass Box - Flaming Heart 2018 Release
This is the sixth edition of Flaming Heart, a whisky inspired by a rock song.
Once again, we combine the rich, bold spiciness of malt whisky aged in heavy-toasted French oak barrels with the evocative smoke of 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, we have reintroduced a subtle Sherry cask influence that adds an additional layer of complexity and richness. This is a touch we have used for Flaming Heart only once before, in the 2012 edition.
While we nuance each edition of Flaming Heart, the signature style always remains the same.
Bottled June 2018. Limited Release bottling of 15050. (and 800 1.5L Magnums). From Scotch Whiskymaker's Compass Box.
