Compass Box Flaming Heart Description
Prepare for oak, smoke and fire! The 2018 bottling of Flaming Heart blended malt from Compass Box is the sixth edition of this powerful expression. It was initially released in 2006 as the first whisky to combine Scotch aged in new French oak with Islay malts. Five re-releases later, this newer edition has introduced a subtle sherry-cask influence that adds an additional layer of complexity and richness. 15,050 bottles have been produced, each filled at 48.9% abv without chill-filtration or added colouring. Can be enjoyed when served neat or paired with rich cheeses.
