Compass Box Flaming Heart Bottling Notes
This is our sixth edition of Flaming Heart, a whisky born of oak, smoke and fire.
First released in 2006, Flaming Heart was the first whisky to combine the rich, complex spice of Scotch aged in new French oak with the evocative peat-reek smoke of Islay malt whisky.
It created a genre-defying style that was smoldering, spicy, complex – and so popular that we’ve re-released it five more times in the years that followed.
Bottled at 48.9%
Lead Whisky Maker: John Glaser
In this 2018 edition, we have reintroduced a subtle sherry-cask influence that adds an additional layer of complexity and richness. A medium smoky-peaty base is enriched by a sweet maltiness and notes of baking spices and dried fruit.
It’s a whisky to enjoy late into the night, perfect served neat or paired with rich cheeses.
