This is Compass Box’s latest release of Flaming Heart and is an absolute stunner! Unusually, the component whiskies and their quantities are explicitly given: 38.5% 14-year-old Caol Ila, 27.1% 30-year-old Caol Ila, 24.1% 20-year old Clynelish and 10.3% seven-year-old blended malt from Clynelish, Teaninich and Dailuaine. Although nothing is certain in life, you can be fairly certain that you’ll be seeing more releases of Flaming Heart in future packs.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Slightly charred rice pudding. Marmaladey. Raspberry jam. Steam room.
Palate: Creamy, steamy, oaky and sweet and aromatic chocolatey peat. Chocolate and vanilla on the finish.
Retails for around £100
