Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled By: Compass Box 70cl / 48.9%
A welcome return for Compass Box's Flaming Heart - this is Batch 7 of this famous blended malt, whose central concept is the combination of peaty whisky and heavily toasted virgin French oak.
Always one of the most heavy metal of Compass Box's whiskies, Flaming Heart is a rare treat - the last batch appeared in 2018 - and for Batch 7 just 9540 bottles have been made, with a sumptuous cask recipe including Laphroaig, Talisker and Caol Ila, plus generous dollops of Glen Elgin and Balmenach and a smidgin of Highland Park. Don't hang around if you want one.
|Cask Type||Virgin Toasted American Oak|
A high-energy nose with smouldering peat embers, cigar wrapper and candied ginger. The palate is oily, smoky, rich and savoury.
