COMPASS BOX FLAMING HEART 5TH EDITION - 70 Cl
The 2015 bottling of Flaming Heart blended malt from Compass Box is a powerful expression, filled to the brim with smoke and deliciousness. Those of you with very well-trained noses will catch notes of Caol Ila, Clynelish and Deanston within thisone, with a few more unnamed whiskies hiding within. 15,050 bottles were produced.
|Nose||The nose offers an impressive profile of peaty (both maritime and mainland), fruity, herbal, chalky and sugary aromas in a delicate mix.|
|Palate||The taste is more wood-driven than the nose and offers mainly bitter tobacco, herbal and spicy flavours with lots of chalk and minerals besides the heavy woods.|
|Finish||The dram arrives a little hot and peppery in the mouth with just a minor coating effect and some bitter-astringent moments (tannins). The finish is medium to long and more sugary-sweet than the taste.|
