Flaming Heart is back.
Every few years, when Compass Box have the appropriate combination of aged whiskies, they blend and bottle a new edition of the award-winning Flaming Heart. This is the fourth. It is a big, smoky malt whisky with rich, concentrated vanilla and spice character. It is unlike any other whisky, owing to the combination of distillery whiskies used and the variety and quality of the casks.

Wood: A combination of refill American oak (ex-Bourbon), new French oak (heavily toasted) and sherry casks.
Bottling Details: Bottled at 48.9%. Not chill filtered. Natural colour.
This is a whisky inspired by a rock song.
Appropriate, perhaps, as rock music has long been associated with rebellion against various societal norms. And our humble company has been associated, for better or for worse, with a reaction against the “traditions” of Scotch whisky production.
We like to think of our approach as reflecting a craft ethos - making whisky better for the sake of it. Flaming Heart is an ideal example of this approach.
It is a whisky that combines Highland single malt whiskies aged on the highest quality, new French oak, with a heavy-peated Islay single malt. And for the first time, we add to this edition of Flaming Heart a small portion of whiskies aged in sherry casks, providing added layers of richness and complexity.
In the melodramatic parlance of a rock lyric, it is a whisky born of fire, yet one with a big heart. Share and enjoy.
