Compass Box Flaming Heart Bottling Note

A wonderful limited edition expression from the chaps at Compass Box, this is their fifteenth anniversary bottling of Flaming Heart, a top notch blended malt which pairs the smoky richness of peated whisky with the complex elegance of Scotch whisky matured in French oak. It was released in the latter half of 2015, fifteen years after Compass Box was lunched in 2000, with John Glaser at the helm.

They released their first bottling of Flaming Heart back in 2006 and the pairing of French-oak matured whisky with peated whisky was a new, exciting venture. It's still bloomin' awesome today, too.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Wood smoke, red fruits, cinnamon and a touch of marzipan. Oatcakes and light sea breeze give it a pleasantly peaty personality.

Palate: Fresh berries up front. Warming, smoky peat builds. Hazelnut cream. A touch oily.

Finish: Ooh, it does lovely things on the finish with raspberry, smoky peat and a bit of damson jam!

Another masterpiece from Compass Box

Rich, sweet, smoky and gorgeous - I'm a huge and unabashed Compass Box fan, but even by their standards this is a special whisky. One of their very, very best.

Wonderful on the nose and on the taste as well. Smooth arrival and outstanding development. Delicious finish. Excellent wiskey

Wonderful

A uniquely complex whisky that made me rethink my previously lukewarm feelings toward blends. Somewhat less smokey than I was expecting from a blend that is mostly Caol Ila, but with a panoply of flavors that I've yet to experience in a single malt. Huge, refined, and supremely complex, this is one of the few whiskies I've had recently that is truly worth its high price.

Epic

Lots of fruit on the nose. Transforms in your mouth from sweet to dark. Among the best whisky's you can buy. It simply doesn't get any better.

As Good As It Gets

Nothing from Compass Box disappoints and this is the best I've tried from them. An exquisite malt blend of the highest caliber. If you tend to be a doubter when it comes to blends, this will change that for sure.

Splendid

The Islay malt and French oak made me think of Ardbeg's Corryvreckan, but this is much more elegant and refined.

If you're unsure about paying £100 for a blend, Compass Box are quite upfront about the whiskies that go in to it, and most of it is old Caol Ila;
38.5% 14 year old Caol Ila,
27.1% 30 year old Caol Ila,
24.1% 20 year old Clynelish
10.3% mixture of 7 year old Clynelish, Teaninch and Dailuaine finished together for two years in new French Oak.
