Compass Box 70cl/48.9% Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
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 metals in 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.
A high-energy nose with smouldering peat embers, cigar wrappers, and candied ginger. The palate is oily, smoky, rich and savoury.
