Compass Box Flaming Heart, Blended Whisky, 70cl.
The 2018 bottling of Flaming Heart blended malt from Compass Box is a powerful expression, filled to the brim with smoke and deliciousness. Those of you with very well-trained noses will catch notes of Caol Ila, Clynelish and Deanston within this one, with a few more unnamed whiskies hiding within. 15,050 bottles were produced.
Nose: Coastal air and fiery peat, tempered by hints of honey on toast and vanilla pod.
Palate: Continued smoke alongside drying Christmas spices and a very slight touch of raisin cookies.
Finish: Oatcakes, salted butter, orange and clove.
