The fourth release of Compass Box's much-loved Flaming Heart blended malt generated a lot of buzz when it made its debut at Whisky Live Paris 2012, and has arrived with a very smart revamped design and a glowing review from Mr. Whiskyfun, Serge Valentin. A terrific combination of vibrant, youthful peat and citrus fruitiness, we expect this to be hugely popular, so act quick.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Impeccable start, on a rather more refined peat than elsewhere (I mean in youngish single malts) and touches of agave and cane juice on top of an elegant Laphroaigness. Beeswax and seawater, antiseptic and overripe apples, bandages and damp clay, Japanese green tea and linseed oil. Then fresh mint, lime, oysters and just touches of diesel oil. Lovely lovely lovely. Mouth: The first thing I like here is the strength. Sounds odd, I know, but these 48.9% work extremely well, it’s nervous and big but approachable and, well, drinkable. Other than that, it’s a superb combination of pink grapefruits, shellfish, olive brine, marzipan, lemon, touches of fresh coriander, lemon balm, some kind of waxy citrons and plain green olives. Passion fruits, cough syrup, liquorice... It’s very smoky too. Finish: Great as well because it remains elegant, zesty, even kind of ethereal despite all the oomph. Leaves your mouth a fresh as a baby’s! Comments: No, really, this is truly excellent. The bottle’s lovely too, it’ll be hard to throw it away once it’s empty (which will happen fast). Potential lamp stands? Nah, too narrow… SGP:446 - 91 points. (Didn’t I just score a fairly young vatting above 90?).
Smoky with a finish of sweet! Amazing! Love it!
Absolutely fine whisky. I'm Laphroaig whisky fan and that's why the taste of Flaming heart pleases me specially
