“Five stars whisky! Compass Box has created an awesome value whisky in this Flaming Heart: complex, old , well matured and peated. I can't ask anything else”
Inspired by a rock song, this blended malt is made using whisky from refill Bourbon barrels, new (heavily toasted) French oak and some sherried oak which is a great new addition!
The whiskies are from distilleries across Scotland but there is a fair whack of a south shore Islay (Laphroaig, Ardbeg or Lagavulin) and a malt from the village of Brora ( Clynelish? ).
This dram has a gold-like color.
Nose (92): more than average. peat, salt, honey, earth, citrus, apples, plums.
Palate (92): powerful, oily. peat, honey, pepper, iodine, salt, wood, citrus, coffee.
Finish (91): longer than average. peat, citrus.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Compass Box Flaming Heart - Release 4 with 92 points over 100.
