FLAMING HEART 5th Edition C.Box 48,9%
Blended Malt Whisky, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: COL19632
"Every great achievement is the victory of a Flaming Heart." – Ralph Waldo Emerson Since Compass Box Whisky Company launched back in 2000, they have always aimed to experiment, to innovate and to explore where others wouldn’t in the world of Scotch. No whisky is a greater example of this ambition than Flaming Heart. First released in 2006, Flaming Heart was the first whisky to combine the rich, complex spice of Scotch aged in new French oak with the evocative peat-fired smoke of Islay malt. It created a genre-defying style that was smouldering, spicy, complex – and so popular that we re-released it three more times in the years that followed.
Profile: outstanding finesse. Fresh fruits (pear, apple) combine with cigar smoke. Notes of agave and turmeric

- Appearance : deep gold
- Nose : refined, streamlined. Like a pebble skimming off the surface of the water, the peat and smoke here send the aromatic palette rippling far away. The nose leads us into citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit), herbaceous notes (straw, cut hay), ash, spices (nutmeg, cloves), heady florals (lily, iris) and fine sea salt. The ingredients combine to form an impressively refined whole. Reminiscent of the very best Caol Ila.
- Palate : rich, unctuous. Much less dry than the nose, almost creamy. Fresh fruits (pear, apple) release their delicious, heady juices. Then, in the mid-palate, cigar smoke draws us back to sun-baked territory. Grains of sand and salt seep through earthy notes (peat). Displaying a root-infused aspect (ginger), it becomes increasingly spicy (white pepper, ginseng).
- Overall : long, enveloping. With yellow tones blended with hints of grey (slate), it displays an unwavering minerality and firmness. Notes of agave and turmeric further accentuate this feeling of fullness. With the retro-nasal olfaction, a maritime breeze sweeps in, carrying iodine on its currents. The empty glass is heady and focused on the peat, smoke and candied fruits (lemon, walnut).
- The brand
Compass Box is unique in the world of whisky. Founded just over ten years ago, it is a small independent company specialising in the blending of whiskies bought from the main whisky producers. Compass Box has made this its speciality, becoming the master in its fields of blended malts, blended grains and blended whisky, with each category represented in its portfolio. It is also a company with a genuine philosophy, elevating blending to a worthy, noble task, distancing itself from its industrial image and reasserting the value of its craft as a ‘whiskymaker’.
